Billy Bob’s Texas Announces Shows for Anniversary Celebration

Billy Bob’s Texas Announces Shows for Anniversary Celebration

Billy Bob’s Texas will ring in their 40th anniversary with The Gatlin Brothers and Hank Williams Jr.

Billy Bob’s Texas first opened on April 1, 1981- celebrating its grand opening for an entire week. The celebration kicked off with Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers on opening night. Exactly 40 years later, the World’s Largest Honky Tonk will celebrate its 40th anniversary with Larry, Steve & Rudy: The Gatlin Brothers on April 1, 2021. 

The celebration doesn’t stop there, following Larry, Steve & Rudy: The Gatlin Brothers will be Hank Williams Jr. on April 2 and 3, Midland on April 8, 9, and 10, and Dwight Yoakam on April 16 and 17. 

The anniversary celebration is set to last through the entire month of April. The full concert line up is still to be announced, but after 40 years of honky tonkin’- it’s bound to be one party after the next. 

NEW CONCERTS ANNOUNCED!

More new shows have just been announced to Billy Bob’s concert calendar. 

Jamey Johnson & Randy Houser’s Country Cadillac Tour

February 4, 2021

Country singer/songwriters Jamey Johnson and Randy Houser will share the stage on their unforgettable co-headlining Country Cadillac Tour, which will begin on Feb. 4 at Billy Bob’s in Fort Worth, Texas. More shows are being added due to popular demand.

The two longtime friends will perform acoustically and swap stories, jokes, and songs. It will be an unforgettable, irreverent and spontaneous evening because no two shows will be alike. They both delivered headline-worthy solo sets before joining forces onstage at the show’s end in 2009 when they performed together at New York’s Bowery Bar. As CMT wrote, “(Johnson) and Houser traded vocals on what amounted to a honky-tonk/Outlaw country jukebox—with the pair tearing through Merle Haggard’s “Ramblin’ Fever,” the Charlie Daniels Band’s “Long Haired Country Boy,” the Marshall Tucker Band’s “Can’t You See” and more by the likes of George Jones, Johnny Paycheck and other renegade forebears.” Johnson and Houser had discussed touring together for years, but their overwhelming solo touring demands hadn’t allowed an opportunity to plan a significant co-headlining tour. This acoustic tour, which will feature proper social distancing and other COVID-19-recommended measures, has been years in the making.

The Steel Woods

March 18, 2021

With a pair of critically acclaimed Woods Music/Thirty Tigers releases under their belts in Straw in the Wind (2017) and Old News ­(2019), Nashville-based The Steel Woods have lived up to their name as a hybrid musical force both in the studio, but especially live. The band’s two original members are native sons of the south who both hail from small-town backgrounds. The Alabama-born Wes Bayliss played harmonica from the age of eight in his family’s gospel band, eventually teaching himself piano, bass, and drums. Jason “Rowdy” Cope turned his love of Jimmy Page and Jimi Hendrix into a career as a session guitarist/songwriter and producer, moving to Los Angeles, then playing in Jamey Johnson’s band for nine years.  The two met in Nashville playing the same gig one night in some out-of-town dive, and immediately discovered an affinity for each other. Part hard-edged Southern rock, part Americana roots country folk, man-made, yet organic, rock but also bluegrass, R&B, blues, gospel, soul, and heavy metal, The Steel Woods’ completed their first recordings barely months after they first met before being joined by current bassist Johnny Stanton. And while their albums have received kudos, it is live where The Steel Woods truly shine, expanding on the blueprints on record, involving the crowd in a joyous, communal experience.

Anyone who has ever heard Fish’s previous albums knows that she has earned a place in the top rank of contemporary blues guitarists and that her voice can wring the soul out of a ballad and belt out a rocker with roof-shaking force.

Midland

April 8-10, 2021

Hailing from Dripping Springs, TX lead vocalist Mark Wystrach fronts Midland’s rich sound that is rounded out with lead guitarist/vocalist Jess Carson and bass player/vocalist Cameron Duddy. Rooted in tradition in both sound and style, the trio initially garnered attention playing clubs in the region. Their critically-acclaimed sophomore albumLET IT ROLL (Big Machine Records) earned the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top Country Album Sales chart upon release, receiving praise from outlets such as Rolling Stone, Variety, NPR, and Entertainment Weekly among others. Wystrach, Carson, and Duddy all played an integral role in writing the 14-track album with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne which features Country Radio’s Top 40 and climbing single “Cheatin’ Songs.” The album was produced by Dann Huff, McAnally, and Osborne and was a follow-up to the critically acclaimed debut album, ON THE ROCKS (Big Machine Records). Launching in 2017 with rave reviews, ON THE ROCKS was declared “the year’s best Country album” by Washington Post. Their 2x Platinum-certified chart-topping debut “Drinkin’ Problem,” which offers an intentional nod to Country music reminiscent of the 1970s and 80s, earned the band their first GRAMMY® Awards nominations for Best Country Song and Best Country Duo/Group Performance. Midland was also named New Vocal Group of the Year at the 2018 ACM Awards and is nominated for Group of the Year at the 2020 ACM Awards.

Known for its micro-roasted coffee beans made in-house and their sought-after “Charlie Sheen” signature drink, the new location will continue to offer specialty coffees and beverages made to perfection.

The Fort Worth Stockyards brings a modern edge to old traditions and we like to think AVOCA Coffee does the same” said CEO, Craig Morgan. “Just like the historic Stockyards served as a meeting place and destination for people to congregate, we believe AVOCA serves the same purpose, marrying the tradition of drinking coffee and gathering with friends, family and colleagues.”

Avoca is that perfect local shop that gives us the blend between Fort Worth history and community” said M2G Ventures Co-President, Jessica Miller Essl

The AVOCA menu has all the crowd favorites including espresso, cold brew, tea and more. Patrons can also enjoy eats including cinnamon rolls, bagels, tacos and more. AVOCA Coffee can also be shipped anywhere in the United States and can be purchased via their online shop.
