DKR Texas Music Legends
Darrell K Royal, revered across Texas and the country as a football coach, led the University of Texas to 11 conference championships and three national championships. He was respected for his accomplishments on the field and in life — a life of integrity with more than half a century of service to the University and Texas. Coach was also known for his deep love, respect, and appreciation for songwriters, especially Texas songwriters. The Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Association recognizes songwriters as inductees to its Hall of Fame and honors those who have provided recognition and support to songwriters by presenting them with our Darrell K Royal Texas Music Legend Award.
