(IVPR) In a ceremony at Austin's Moody Theatre on February 25, Kacey Musgraves joined Radney Foster onstage for "Nobody Wins" and "Texas In 1880" - songs she sang as his background singer at 19. Along with Kelly Willis, Randy Rogers and William Beckmann, who also joined Foster on stage, Musgraves inducted her former boss into the 2023 Texas Heritage Songwriters Hall of Fame.

The Texas Heritage Songwriters Association honors Texas songwriters who have helped shape and define Texas culture. Other performers included Ronnie Dunn, LeeRoy Parnell, W.C Clark, Escovedo, Clawson, Nunn and David Lee.

"The first Foster and Lloyd really changed music for me," said Darius Rucker in a video tribute, "No one deserves this more. Radney is one of the greatest songwriters of all time." Later in the tribute, Keith Urban said, "Radney is the real deal. The first time I heard him sing, I thought, who is this voice? His album See What You Want to See was a game changer, his songwriting really spoke to me. I've cut four songs off that record!"

Foster has written multiple number one singles and had countless cuts by artists like Urban, the Chicks, Hootie and the Blowfish, Jack Ingram and others. He joins Kris Kristofferson, Willie Nelson, Billy Joe Shaver, Rodney Crowell, Lightnin' Hopkins, Joe Ely, Townes Van Zandt, Lefty Frizzell, Clint Black, Robert Earl Keen, Liz Rose, Aaron Barker, Freddy Powers, and many more in the Hall Of Fame.

He is currently on tour celebrating the 30th anniversary of his solo debut, Del Rio, TX 1959.
