This episode of Texas Entertainment News - The Texas Music Special - broadcast in August of 1996, centers around the question "What is Texas Music?" Hosting from Willie Nelson's Fourth of July Picnic in Luckenbach, Leisa Hart and Tim McConnell ask a number of musicians to define Texas Music. Featured artists include Robert Earl Keen, Don Walser, Jesse Dayton, Ray Price, Joe Ely, cellist John Hagan, Paula Nelson, Little Joe Hernandez, and Doug Sahm.

Texas Entertainment News was created by media producer Fred Miller in 1996. Hosted by Tom McConnell and Leisa Hart (of Total Fitness "Buns of Steel" fame), its goal was to provide a weekly look into entertainment production and events throughout Texas. Airing on Sunday nights at 10:30pm, it was anchored at WFFA in Dallas and carried by 15 affiliates statewide. In addition to the television broadcast, TEN had an online component- a fairly unique experience in 1996. A total of 33 episodes were made before the show was canceled at the end of its first season.
