If you're looking for a break from the heat, we’ve found a concert in a place where Mother Nature has actually programmed cool weather all the time. Musician Terri Hendrix said her Saturday night concert is not really outdoors, and it's not really the indoors either.

Terri Hendrix is from San Antonio, and got her start playing everywhere from "greasy dives" (as she once told me) to fancier digs like Restaurant Biga back when it was off of McCullough St. In 1996, she released her first album, "Two Dollar Shoes." The infectious title track and folksy melodies were a hit. She kept writing and performing, and became a self-made businesswoman with the establishment of her own record label, Wilory Records (née Tycoon Cowgirl Records).  Twenty years and over a dozen studio/live releases later, her audience has grown into a nationwide following.

Even when Terri Hendrix gets the blues, she does so with joy and passion. Her latest album, “Love You Strong,” was released earlier this year after a five-year hiatus from recording.

For over fifteen years, San Marcos-based singer and songwriter Terri Hendrix has been creating music on her own terms, and encouraging others to “own your own universe,” to borrow a line from one of her signature tunes, “Wallet.” Hendrix, originally from San Antonio, has found success as a true DIY artist, controlling all of the master tapes for her music, recording on her terms, and personally responding to fans that sign up for her email list, which she also maintains in-house.
