Midland along with Boz Scaggs, Gretchen Wilson, Diamond Rio, Tracy Byrd & more are headed To Billy Bob’s Texas In June. 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. The Midland concert on June 28th is already sold-out.

    Billy Bob’s is legendary. You have to go there at least once in your life. Once you go, you can’t wait to go back. If I lived closer I would be there all the time.

    It is not only the World’s Largest Honky Tonk, Billy Bob’s Texas is the World’s Best Honky Tonk. I grew up in Ft. Worth, and now live in Tampa, but I miss Billy Bob’s because there is no place like it anywhere. Would love to see Midland there and I am a huge Diamond Rio fan.

    I actually saw Al Jackson at Billy Bob’s and it was a really good time. I try to go there at least once a year and it is always fun. Would love to see Gretchen Wilson there because I hear she gets rowdy and that is the best place to get rowdy. Trust me.
