The Texas National Guard presented the colors and led the pledge of allegiance, then country music legend Tanya Tucker performed the National Anthem.
Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick and his wife Jan were there, Patrick took his oath of office yesterday as well. The governor's swearing-in was officiated by the Supreme Court of Texas Chief Justice Nathan L. Hecht.
