Next on our list of categories for the Texas Music Awards is Producer of the Year. Producer's have a tough job. They have to be able to see the same vision the artist sees for the project. If you have ever tried to get in someone's head for any reason you know how tough that can be. But aside from seeing the vision, they have to make the dream a reality - to give birth to a conceptual idea. To make things more difficult, sometimes the artist is not sure what they want - except to play good music. These are good reasons why sometimes, you'll find the artist acting as their own producer. Did you know that Buddy Holly was one of the first to produce his own vision professionally?
