Billy Bob’s: Lending a Hand to Music History:
Artists placing their hands in cement has been a tradition at Billy Bob’s for more than two decades.

Many of the club’s showcased artists have been honored with various awards and accolades. For some, however, their favorite honor is being part of what is now known as Billy Bob’s ‘Wall of Fame’.

Patrons can visit the Wall of Fame and see the handprints and autographs of Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash, and even Ringo Starr to name a few. Many fans enjoy comparing their hand size to the celebrities.

About Billy Bob’s Texas:
Located in the heart of the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, the 100,000 square foot cattle barn became Billy Bob’s Texas in 1981. Since then more than 17 million visitors have enjoyed live entertainment and real bull riding at “The World’s Largest Honky Tonk”.

The facility can hold 6,000 rowdy patrons on a given night and has been host to hundreds of musical acts, from Alan Jackson to ZZ Top. On Fridays and Saturdays, the venue also features live bull riding – a step up from the mechanical variety. It seems like an unlikely source for a series that has sold millions of albums.

Billy Bob’s has been named the Country Music Club of the Year 10 times by the Academy of Country Music.

2021 Festival Dates And Other News From Me.

 News  Comments Off on 2021 Festival Dates And Other News From Me.
Jan 102021
 

Hello my dear friends and music lovers of all forms. I write this with immense uncertainty for the upcoming live music situation next year. I personally never made any official withdraw announcement for the website, trust me I HAVE been watching and studying things. If YOUR favorite artist released a new album in 2020, chances are I have been equally enjoying it.

Now, as I prepare to wrap up my year and revel in my many accomplishments I made in 2020 on a personal level, I study all of the festivals that have already locked in new dates for 2021.

I have been making many phone calls and sending many emails to many groups of people all over America in order to do this. the extent of my studies put me on a whole different echelon here. There are so many avenues to explore and transfer to written form, to share with you, additionally I will include the links to the festivals so you can see the information yourself.

I had to step back from things directly before the pandemic even erupted nationally, to take care of a horrible dependency to pain pills. I have many health issues, and some of them require pain management, and I  had to accept the fact I cannot manage the pills responsibly. I had to enroll in a rehabilitation program, and learn how to work the twelve steps of AA meetings.

I learned that there was no difference between an addiction full blown and a dependency, and that I was once again..an addict. Therefore, I realized I had a plethora of work to do on myself in order to retain my control of my personal life. I cannot do what I do on here without a clear head, AND NOW I have 9 months sober.

I moved my daughter down to Kentucky in April from Wisconsin, and I am currently reaching her the ways of independent music. She has never been exposed to the likes of Cody Jinks or Greensky Bluegrass. In my opinion, SHE IS the future of our precious music, and exposing her to the many bands that she has never heard on any radio makes me an elated father.

I had to put aside my written duties for several months, in order to help my daughter with her personal life and set her up to succeed in life. With a young adult, you have to set them up with finances and avenues of support. When you play Monopoly you start with money, right? Right. So with all of that being said…let’s move forward with my usual assault on the corporate mainstream crap that prostitutes your FM radio.

This is NOT a final list for 2021, in fact there are more than 150 festivals I have no information for as of yet. I’ll be actively adding new festivals and dates to this article all through the spring of next year, as we see about whether or not these can even transpire.

I HAVE BEEN watching, reading and keeping up with SO MANY new releases in 2020, and my crew has been working diligently with album reviews in my absence. We will ALL be releasing a TOP 50 of the year, so be looking for those to come around the week of Christmas.

I still have my annual birthday celebration, and this year it will be at the Spillway Bar And Grill on November 21st featuring Mr. Ward Davis. You can buy tickets for that right HERE.

This past weekend, I took my daughter to Alabama to see the grave of one of Country Music’s greatest superstars. Hank Williams is a hero to me, as well as many and I needed to visit him and become revitalized and recharged. I needed guidance and prayers in order to move forward and still become the force that I am for local music.
