Once an open-air barn used for prize cattle in the Fort Worth Stock Show, the building that is now Billy Bob's Texas was originally built in 1910. After several incarnations that included an auction venue, an airplane factory and a department store, Billy Bob's Texas officially opened in 1981. It features a 100,000-square-foot entertainment center with over 30 bars, country music's top acts, Pro Bull Riding, a gift shop and a dance floor just about the size of Texas itself. "The World's Largest Honky Tonk" entertains over 6,000 guests of all ages each day and features favorite acts, like Alabama, ZZ Top, Clay Walker, Boz Scaggs and more. The Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association has named Billy Bob's the "Country Music Club of the Year" 12 times since it opened. The best Billy Bob's tickets are available at StubHub.
