|Howdy, Texas music fans! Until further notice, Texas Polka News will be published every other month instead of monthly. Next issues: July, September, November. Great thing about music is that you can listen to it anywhere! But we miss our dancing community and hope we will be scootin’ our boots and kickin’ up our heels in dance halls, festival pavilions, and church picnic fields soon! Texas Polka News and polkabeat.com promises to keep you informed as to events being canceled as we all work to stay safe from the Coronavirus. We update the schedule daily. When in doubt please call the venue or organization to make sure events are still taking place. Until then check out these YouTube channels to help you polka on! Mollie B & Squeezebox, Alex Meixner Band, Buttonboxes by Walt Harfmann, George Weber, and The Manaccordionist Kelsey Lien.|
The Texas Czech Heritage and Cultural Center in La Grange will host the annual Heritage Festival & Muziky on October 15th and 16th.

Over the past years, some country music has changed so much that one wouldn't even be able to identify it as country. With Brandon Hodde's new song, "Backroad," that is certainly not the case.
