The 10-time Academy of Country Music “Nightclub of the Year” has had over 17 million visitors since opening in 1981.
Billy Bob’s Texas is not just about the concerts. Nearly 50,000 bulls have bucked in Billy Bob’s Arena to date, and every Friday and Saturday nights at 9:00 pm and 10:00 pm, patrons can watch real bull riders in action at Billy Bob’s. Even a few of Texan-born Country music artists – Cody Johnson and Josh Ward – once got their start riding bucking bulls at Billy Bob’s before venturing onto a career as a musician.
Billy Bob’s VP of Marketing Pam Minick was once told by legendary Beatles drummer Ringo Star on his arrival, ““I told me band mates; get ready we’re going to see some real bull riding here.”
Billy Bob’s has also collected a variety of historical artifacts which are on display throughout the venue. In the appropriately named “Guitar Bar,” patrons can check out a large autographed guitar collection, and over 1,400 guitar picks which have been donated by many of the legends that graced the stages at Billy Bob’s over the years.
