About Billy Bob's Texas: In 1980, at the height of the Urban Cowboy craze, the idea for Billy Bob's Texas was born. Billy Bob Barnett and Spencer Taylor plotted what to do with a 100,000-square-foot department store that was closed and for sale. Barnett knew that the authenticity of the Stockyards and the size of the space would lend itself well to a nightclub. They hired a crew of 80 and set to work. Billy Bob was hesitant to make a commitment about when the club would open. He set the date for April 1, 1981. A fallback plan, if everything fell through, would be "April Fools!"
Originally, the idea was to capitalize on the popularity of local musician Jerry Max Lane by naming the club "Jerry Max's Texas," but when legal barriers of licensing that name began to surface, Billy Bob added his own namesake to the club and "Billy Bob's Texas" was born.

New Video, New Album, New Tour and Another Season of Hit Reality Show
Due to overwhelming demand, multiple GRAMMY award-winning singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves has added 17 new North American shows to her sold-out Oh, What a World: Tour. Following her previously announced tour dates, Kacey will hit the summer festival circuit, becoming the first-ever female country artist to play Coachella, and will then launch the second North American leg of her tour on August 24th at Vina Robles Amphitheatre in Paso Robles, CA. These new dates, produced by Live Nation, will include returns to major cities such as Phoenix, Philadelphia, Boston, and Toronto, and will make stops in Santa Fe, Charlotte, and New Orleans, among others (see below for full list of tour dates). For tickets go to http://www.kaceymusgraves.com/tour.
Over the past year, Kacey has toured extensively in support of Golden Hour to massive critical reception, with NPR aptly summarizing, “Kacey Musgraves is magnetic – there are no two ways about it.” One month into the sold-out North American leg of her Oh, What a World: Tour, Kacey has dazzled press and fans alike. Billboard declared, “leaving the packed theatre would have anyone convinced: Musgraves isn't just breaking country's rules, but re-writing them,” Rolling Stone observed, “with each successive record, culminating in the velvety and confident Golden Hour, Musgraves has expanded both her sonics and her fan base,” and Variety enthused, “considering her gradual but inexorable rise over the past five years; considering the accessibility, intelligence, humor, positivity and wide appeal of her songs; considering the praise heaped upon her by critics (not to mention her two GRAMMY wins and the four nominations for her latest album, “Golden Hour“); and considering, most of all, the rapturous response she receives from her fans, it’s hard to imagine that within the next couple of years Kacey Musgraves won’t be one of the biggest stars in music.”
Golden Hour has been named Apple Music’s Global Album of the Year, and has been hailed as of the best albums of 2018 by everyone from NPR, Time, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Pitchfork, Entertainment Weekly, Esquire, Complex, Consequence of Sound, USA Today, Noisey, People, and Vulture, among others. Stereogum proclaims, “again and again, the album makes the incredible feel as natural as breathing,” and The Associated Press assures, “Golden Hour will put a smile on your face, and live inside of your heart.”

Danny Zelisko Presents proudly welcomes folk-rock legend Gordon Lightfoot to the historic Celebrity Theatre at 8 p.m. on Sunday, March 17th.
After more than 50 active years of hit song making and international album sales well into the multi-millions, it's safe to say that esteemed singer-songwriter and musician Gordon Lightfoot resides with some very exclusive company atop the list of all-time greats. His song catalog is incredibly vast and includes such immortals as “Early Morning Rain,” “If You Could Read My Mind,” “Carefree Highway,” “Sundown,” “(That's What You Get) For Lovin Me,” “The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald," "Canadian Railroad Trilogy," "Ribbon Of Darkness," "Beautiful," "Song For A Winter's Night" and "Rainy Day People" to name a few.
Celebrating his 80th birthday, this year is special for the legendary artist, who has announced plans for a cross-country USA tour entitled "GORDON LIGHTFOOT: 80 YEARS STRONG TOUR." The tour will feature his well-known hits as well as some deep album cuts for the die-hard fanatics. All of which are woven together with some of Lightfoot's own behind the scenes stories and personal anecdotes about his historic 50-plus-years musical career and his 80 years of life. The event is sure to be a great thrill for live audiences and anyone who enjoys hearing great music and seeing a living legend in person.
Lightfoot has recorded 20 albums and has five Grammy nominations. His songs have been aired regularly for over 50 years, earning him Radio Singles Chart Positions in North America achieved by few others. Lightfoot's radio hits in the USA have earned Five #1s, Five Top 10s and Thirteen Top 40 hits. In Canada he has earned Sixteen #1s, Eighteen Top 10s and Twenty One Top 40 hits.
Aside from his success in writing, singing and performing his own songs, Lightfoot has found fortune in having his songs recorded and performed by other great artists including: Bob Dylan, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Jr., Marty Robbins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Judy Collins, Johnny Mathis, Anne Murray, Olivia Newton-John, Sarah McLachlan, Barbra Streisand, Peter Paul & Mary, Harry Belafonte, Jane’s Addiction, Richie Havens, Glen Campbell, Toby Keith and George Hamilton IV.
In June of 2012 Lightfoot's legacy was further enhanced when he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame. Lightfoot was honored for his role in defining the folk-pop sound of the 1960s and '70s. In his native Canada, Lightfoot has been decorated with the highest honors bestowed to a civilian including the Governor's General Award and the Companion to the Order of Canada honor of merit. He has also won 17 Juno Awards - Canada's equivalent to the Grammy Awards. Gordon is a member of Canada's Walk of Fame and The Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame. In 2007, Canada Post honored him by issuing an official Gordon Lightfoot postage stamp. Lightfoot is also in the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and the Canadian Country Music Hall of Fame. Gordon Lightfoot is an indelible part of the Canadian national spirit and regarded as perhaps the most prolific and greatest Canadian singer-songwriter of all time.
