Saturday marked another sign that Second Street in Downtown Austin is transforming into a hot spot for fans of Texas music.

Austin Rocks Texas, an Austin-centric

music-themed boutique, opened its doors right next to the ACL music venue and the Willie Nelson statue.

Austin Rocks Texas sells what the operators call “Austin lifestyle” apparel, gifts and artwork. The store is located in the City Hall building on Willie Nelson Boulevard.

Co-owner Shelley Meyer says she jumped on the chance to open a shop in the vibrant area.

“When this space opened up on Second Street, which has become quite a fashion district, and of course ACL opened up and, the Willie Nelson statue and all the things that are making Second Street come alive, we just knew we had to have our second location over here,” Meyer said.

The new shop is a spinoff of Wild About Music which has been open for about 21 years.
