SAN ANTONIO - The Alamo City is now officially considered a music-friendly city.

The Texas Music Office officially designated San Antonio as a Music Friendly Community on Monday. Denton is also receiving the designation later this month.

The two cities join Fort Worth and Austin, while Dallas, Corpus Christi and Lubbock are going through the promise to receive the same certification, according to the Texas Music Office.  

The Music Office is part of the governor's office and helps spread an organized music community across Texas.

For San Antonio, that means helping to support musicians and develop the music industry.

"It's not just a piece of paper they get. This represents a lot of work by a lot of people in the city," said Brendon Anthony, head of the Texas Music Office.

Part of being a Music Friendly Community involves working with music-related nonprofits and offering music education programs in public schools and universities.
