Multi-Platinum Trio Lady A to Headline Two Nights at Billy Bob’s Texas

Five-time Grammy awarding-winning group Lady A is set to headline
at the World’s Largest Honky Tonk, Billy Bob’s Texas, on July 16th and 17th. The shows mark the trio’s first appearance at the venue. Country music newcomer Jameson Rodgers will open the show on July 16th.

Over the course of their decade-plus career, Lady A has become one of the 21st century’s
premier vocal groups, blending deeply felt emotions with classic Country sounds. While
ushering more than 18 million album units, 34 million tracks sold and nearly five billion digital
streams, the trio recently earned their 11th career No. 1 with the multi-week and GOLD chart
topper “Champagne Night.” Additionally, the trio earned the biggest first week streams of their
career with their critically acclaimed No. 1 album OCEAN (BMLG Records). Known for their 9X
PLATINUM hit “Need You Now,” which is the highest certified song by a Country group, they
have earned CMA Awards Vocal Group of the Year trophies three years in a row and countless
other honors including five GRAMMY® Awards, Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice
Awards, Teen Choice Awards and a Tony Award nod. The trio recently announced details for
their newly formed LadyAID Scholarship Fund, supporting students attending Historically Black
Colleges and Universities, and were honored with an invitation to become members of
Country’s longest standing musical institution in January – the Grand Ole Opry.

Lynyrd Skynyrd is Coming to Billy Bob’s!

Lynyrd Skynyrd is Coming to Billy Bob’s!

Legendary rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, is the latest act to be added to the star-studded concert roster at the World’s Largest Honky Tonk. The band will headline Billy Bob’s Texas on June 18 & 19. These shows will be following the world-famous Honky Tonk’s 40th anniversary celebration spanning the month of April.

In 2018, Southern Rock icons, Lynyrd Skynyrd, announced that, after a career that has spanned more than 40 years and includes a catalog of more than 60 albums with more than 30 million units sold, they would embark on their Last of the Street Survivors Farewell Tour. Produced by Live Nation, the career-concluding farewell tour logged over 50 stops by the end of 2018.

In 2019 Johnny Van Zant, Gary Rossington, and Rickey Medlocke sat down with Dan Rather for a candid conversation on The Big Interviewduring the first leg of their farewell tour. Reflecting on Lynyrd Skynyrd’s enduring legacy and their fans around the world, Rossington told Rather, “It takes a long time to finish a farewell tour when you’re like us, ‘cause we’ve played everywhere… I keep jokin’ it’d take ten years to do the farewell tour.”

However, like many things since COVID hit last year, their Farewell tour has been put on pause. Lead singer, Johnny Van Zant said, ‘this past year has been very difficult on so many people, including us and our families. I think you realize once something is taken away from you, you truly realize how important it is and such a part of your life.’

Original member and guitarist Gary Rossington added, ‘you know, we were in the last part of the Farewell Tour when COVID turned our world upside down. And since that time, we have been talking amongst the band, and realized that music has such a way of healing. Maybe it’s not our time to go? And maybe it’s our time to lift people’s spirits and lives and bring back some joy and happiness after so much turmoil this past year. This country and the world have been through a lot this past year with COVID. We’re still standing, still keeping the music going. We want to do the guys who aren’t with us any more proud, and keep the name proud, too.

The legendary rockers are best known for the RIAA Platinum-certified “Sweet Home Alabama” and self-proclaimed signature song, “Free Bird,” that Rolling Stone said was “easily the most requested live song in existence.” With everlasting hits such as “Simple Man,” “Gimme Three Steps,” “What’s Your Name,” “Call Me The Breeze,” “You Got that Right,” and more, it is easy to see why Rolling Stone named Lynyrd Skynyrd one of its 100 Greatest Bands of All Time.

Lynyrd Skynyrd, the band that USA Today called the “whiskey-soaked genre’s most popular and influential crew,” is ready to return to live music and rock Billy Bob’s for the first time as a band. Original member Gary Rossington will be joined by Johnny Van Zant, Rickey Medlocke, Mark “Sparky” Matejka, Michael Cartellone, Keith Christopher, Peter Keys, Dale Krantz Rossington, and Carol Chase.

This will be Lynyrd Skynyrd’s first show at Billy Bob’s Texas. Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday, April 16th at 10 AM and can be purchased online at billybobstexas.com or by phone at 817-624-7117.

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 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.

Mayfest Festival Canceled For 2021

Mayfest Festival Canceled For 2021

Trinity Collaborative, Inc. announced the Mayfest festival is canceled for 2021, but
plans have begun for the 50th Anniversary Mayfest in 2022

FORT WORTH, Texas – Trinity Collaborative, Inc. announces the
cancelation of the Mayfest 2021 festival in the overall interest of public health and
safety due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. It is our social responsibility to continue
to place the safety and wellbeing of our patrons, volunteers, vendors, partners and
community as our top priority.

This difficult decision was made with great care and deliberation after numerous
meetings with public health officials. At this time, a gathering as large and populous as
Mayfest negates the efforts to minimize the effects of COVID-19. The cancelation will
help advance the health of our community, allowing for future opportunities to safely
congregate and unite once again.

We are enthusiastically planning the 50th Anniversary of Mayfest, which will take place
May 5th – 8th, 2022. Now more than ever, we look forward to connecting people to the
river, our parks and each other in a safe, welcoming environment.

Trinity Collaborative, Inc., formally known as Mayfest, Inc., recently expanded the
organization’s operations to produce other events and introduce new programs in
addition to the annual Mayfest festival. Plans are underway for new, exciting
developments that support the organization’s mission to raise and contribute funds for
the Trinity River, surrounding parks and community programs.

We appreciate your continued support during this time and encourage you to follow
us on social media or visit our website for the most current information.

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.

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.
