FORT WORTH, Texas – With multiple sold-out shows this weekend, the colossal Billy Bob’s Texas is not slowing down anytime soon! The legendary, one-of-a-kind honky-tonk in the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, has earned an impressive 10 ACM Nightclub of the Year Awards with 18 nominations.
The Academy of Country Music nominated Billy Bob’s for Club of the Year 2020!
“We are honored to be nominated again for ACM Club of the Year. Our entire team works passionately to promote the past, present and future stars of Country Music and to make Billy Bob’s Texas a place where memories are made by both fans and artists.

They fund medical and general hardships of those involved in the music community with help from large industry partnerships.

Billy Bob’s will celebrate a big milestone in 2021 — 40 years of entertaining fans from around the world,” says Billy Minick, CEO of Billy Bob’s Texas.

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. March 28th, is none other than country legend Sammy Kershaw.
