Texas Friendly Music Community badge created for McKinney by the state music officeMcKinney's Music Scene

The McKinney community is lucky to have so many talented musicians including many truly gifted singer-songwriters. Find them performing at many of the downtown restaurants and both wineries as well as a handful of restaurants across the city. The people of McKinney love our musicians, both professional and amateur, so much so that in 2020, Visit McKinney worked with the Texas Music Office within the Office of the Governor to earn a Texas Music Friendly Community designation.

In summer 2021, Downtown McKinney worked with KHYI The Range radio station to host the 25th Annual Texas Music Revolution festival featuring four main stages, small stages in more than 25 shops and restaurants, and almost 100 musicians during the fantastic two-day event.

Below are a few examples of McKinney music locations and groups that support local music development and the listings below this link to restaurants where you can find live music every weekend, and venues that hold live music events.
