Billy Bob’s December Lineup Is Impressive

FORT WORTH, Texas – The action planned for December at Billy Bob’s Texas continues to prove why it’s one of Texas’ most loved venues, by bringing in some of your favorite names in music and hosting one-of-a-kind events. The “World’s Largest Honky Tonk” will wrap up the year with their unique traditions that allow guests to embrace their inner cowboy and cowgirl, such as free line dance lessons and bull riding, along with special performances from artists such as Sammy Hagar, Stoney LaRue, Scotty McCreery, and more that are not to be missed!

World Axe Throwing League

History will be made on December 12th, when the World Axe Throwing League (WATL) crowns its newest champions. The World’s greatest axe throwers will gather at Billy Bob’s Texas to compete for a share of $50,000, and the opportunity to win the title of World Champion. For the first time ever, they’ll be joined by the World Knife Throwing League, which will crown its inaugural champion. All of these athletes will have a chance to show the world why they’re the best, as both finals will be broadcast live on ESPN!

Ryan Bingham (December 9) is sure to transform the place into the “Southside of Heaven”, before Charley Crockett (December 10) delivers the perfect blend of country and blues that only he can. The stars will certainly be shining the next night, when American Idol winner Scotty McCreery (December 11) will be bringing the house down. Hayes Carll (December 16) comes to town next, and “chances are” you’ll love every second of it, and then the return of Chris Cagle (December 17) will make sure the dance floor stays full all night.

It’s always a great show when Flatland Cavalry (December 18) takes the stage, while La Mafia (December 19) will have everyone on their feet with their mix of Spanish, pop, and rock music. Kevin Fowler (December 23) will leave no doubt that he’s “100% Texan” when his Deck the Dancehall Tour stops into Billy Bob’s Texas and it’s sure to be a holly jolly Christmas night when Dylan Wheeler (December 25) shows everyone why he’s one of the hottest rising stars in the business today. Toadies (December 30) take the stage next, and the hometown heroes are sure to turn it up to 11 with special guests, Eleven Hundred Springs.

About Billy Bob’s Texas:
Located in the heart of the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, the 120,000 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 real bull riding – a step up from the mechanical variety.

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