Steven Fromholz

Texas Music legend Steven Fromholz, 68, suffered fatal injuries in a hunting accident at his ranch near Eldorado in West Texas, Sunday, Jan. 19. Graveside services will be held at 2 p.m. at Fort McKavett Cemetery Jan. 24 with a reception following at the firre house. Steven Fromholz was born June 8, 1945 in Temple. One of his best known music pieces entitled “Texas Trilogy” is an epic narrative centered around Bosque County. It was his career-defining piece, a richly detailed and characterized trio of songs (“Daybreak,” “Train Ride” and “Bosque County Romance”) that was covered by his admirer Lyle Lovett Lovett. Lovett called Fromholz a “friend and teacher,” and said Texas Trilogy “isn’t a song, it’s a transcendent Texas bible, a local setting with universal meaning.” Fromholz was named a Texas Poet Laureate in 2007.
