Billy Bob’s Texas Represents again at The 131st Rose Parade
Pam Minick, Billy Bob’s Texas VP of Marketing was on hand again as host for RFD / The Cowboy Channel for their coverage of the 131st Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif. this week. Additionally, the RFD-TV / Cowboy Channel float won the Showmanship Award from the parade committee.
“It was so exciting to be their first-hand when the RFD-TV & Cowboy Channel float about rodeo won the Showmanship award, because that is about showmanship and entertainment – and anybody that knows professional rodeo knows it is definitely entertaining as well as athletic,” said Minick, long-time host of The American Rancher on The Cowboy Channel. “It was my 12th year to host the Rose Parade for RFD-TV and we present it like it should be with no commercial messages, let you listen to the bands, and we show all of the equine entries!”
The award goes to the “most outstanding display of showmanship and entertainment,” and is one of 24 given annually. Scores for each float are based on creative design, floral craftsmanship, artistic merit, computerized animation, thematic interpretation, color presentation, floral presentation and more.The Cowboy Channel’s “Walk.Ride.Rodeo.” float took more than 45,000 flowers to create and is about 75-feet long. You can see how it was made here and a photo gallery here.

Live at Billy Bob’s Texas Airs Sundays At 7/6c On RFD-TV
Live at Billy Bob’s Texas gives the listener a front row seat to concerts at the World’s Largest Honky Tonk. The music series has compiled powerful performances featuring hits from legendary country music artists like Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, Charlie Daniels, Eddy Raven, Gary Stewart, Asleep at the Wheel, Janie Fricke and more. There’s also more than a dozen singer-songwriters from the Texas and Red Dirt Music scene including Stoney LaRue, Kevin Fowler, Randy Rogers Band, and even a popular Fort Worth rock band, The Toadies.
In a partnership that started over 20 years ago, Smith Music Group has gathered a collection of their favorite cuts – including icons Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson with newer artists like Shooter Jennings – and put them into a TV show! You’ll see exclusive interviews, one-offs from up-and-comers and intimate backstage acoustic performances.
Live Bull Riding Every Friday & Saturday Night!
Every Friday and Saturday night at 9 pm & 10 pm you can catch the excitement of live bull riding in the former auction ring at Billy Bob’s.
Bull riding at Billy Bob’s is conducted just like at a professional rodeo. Riders enter early in the week, pay an entry fee, and take home only what they win. Rules call for the rider to hang on for eight seconds with only one hand in the braided loose rope. The riders can earn up to 50 points for the way the bull bucks and the degree of difficulty, as well as up to 50 points for the control the cowboy shows. A perfect score of 100 has never been achieved at Billy Bob’s – and has only been reached once in the history of pro rodeo.
For contestant info and Bull Riding entries, contact Kaitlyn Shaw by phone at 214-957-8859, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Billy Bob’s: Lending a Hand to Music History
Artists placing their hands in cement has been a tradition at Billy Bob’s for more than two decades.
Many of the club’s showcased artists have been honored with various awards and accolades. For some, however, their favorite honor is being part of what is now known as Billy Bob’s ‘Wall of Fame’.
Patrons can visit the Wall of Fame and see the hand prints and autographs of Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and even Ringo Starr to name a few. Many fans enjoy comparing their hand size to the celebrities.

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 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.
