Fort Worth wouldn’t be Fort Worth without Billy Bob’s Texas — The World’s Largest Honky-Tonk! We’ve been eagerly anticipating reopen dates for our favorite live music venues in town, and we’ve just heard some very exciting news from the heart of live music in Fort Worth’s Stockyards.

FIVE NEW SHOWS ANNOUNCED JUST IN TIME TO CELEBRATE THE 4TH OF JULY
TICKETS ON SALE TUESDAY, JUNE 16 AT 10 AM – BILLYBOBSTEXAS.COM
Howdy y’all!

We’re still here and we’ve missed you. Our team has taken this time to make some major renovations to our beloved club. We’ve completely renovated the restrooms in the southwest corner of the club, made some upgrades to our kitchen, and have painted and patched many areas that were showing their age. These projects would have been nearly impossible to complete without this downtime, and we are grateful to have been able to use it wisely and make some much-needed improvements.

We aren’t quite ready to open our doors yet, but that announcement is coming soon – we promise! However, we are ready to announce FIVE NEW SHOWS!

Thursday, July 2 – Randall King
Friday, July 3 – Neal McCoy
Saturday, July 4 – The Bellamy Brothers
Friday, July 10 and Saturday, July 11 – Mike Ryan

Though the current mandates listed in Phase 3 of Governor Abbott’s reopening plan states that bars can open at 50% capacity, we feel that in the interest of health and safety for our staff, guests, and entertainers, we will be opening at HALF of the restricted capacity.

Therefore, this concert will be limited to 1,500 tickets.
1000 socially distanced Reserved Seats
500 socially distanced General Admission

There will be no bull riding or valet during these shows.

THURSDAY, JULY 2 – RANDALL KING
With Nashville artist Randall King, what you see is what you get. The wide-brimmed hat reveals his proud southern heritage. Piercing eyes flash the integrity he values above all else. Worn-in boots bare the scars of countless hours under the hot sun. And that easy smile hints at the soul of a Western poet. One of country’s new crop of modern traditionalists, he’s never lived outside the endless plains of West Texas – and his sound is steeped in their timeless beauty, both gritty and graceful at the same time. King’s music captures that essence, showcasing a talent who’s never been afraid to be himself.

THURSDAY, JULY 2
Honky Tonk Stage: JD MYERS AND LEGACY at 8 PM
Showroom: RANDALL KING at 9 PM
$25 Reserved Seats / $14 General Admission

FRIDAY, JULY 3 – NEAL McCOY has released fifteen studio albums on various labels and has released 34 singles to country radio. In 1993, he broke through with the back-to-back number 1 singles No Doubt About It and Wink from his platinum-certified album No Doubt About It. His commercial success continued into the late 1990s with two more platinum albums and a gold album, as well as six more Top Ten hits. A seventh Top Ten hit, the number 10 Billy’s Got His Beer Goggles On, came in 2005 from his self-released That’s Life. Neal first came to Billy Bob’s Texas performing with the house band Texas Pride. As a headliner, he has performed more than 25 times and Billy Bob’s Country Club season ticket holders have voted him their favorite entertainer.

Honky Tonk Stage: JD MYERS AND LEGACY at 8 PM
Showroom: NEAL McCOY at 10 PM
$25-$32 Reserved Seats / $16 General Admission

SATURDAY, JULY 4 – THE BELLAMY BROTHERS
Howard and David continue to prove that the trail they’ve ridden to fame has been as unique as their music itself—music that is now celebrating 40 years of success. The road that started on the pop music charts in the ‘70’s, took a winding turn into country music in the ‘80’s, paving the way for duos to come, such as Brooks & Dunn, Montgomery Gentry, Big & Rich, and previously—The Judds. But before the road forked into country, the musical odyssey of brothers Bellamy started creatively smoldering in their home state of Florida, before exploding nationally amidst the ’70’s pop music culture of L.A. The Bellamys are showing a new generation of country music how it’s done. “We’re old road dogs,” grins Howard when asked about the motivation behind the brothers 200 plus concert dates each year. Adds David: “Our live draw is bigger than it was in the ‘80’s. I think the same people that grew up with us and with our music in the ‘60’s and ‘70’s obviously have raised a whole new generation of Bellamy fans who started toddling to our music. Now they’re turning up at our concerts as college kids, who are really turned on and tuned in to us and our music….it’s a great feeling.”
