Billy Bob's located in the heart of cowtown, at the Fort Worth Stockyards, has been a staple in country music for as long as it has been open. With mechanical bullriding, boot scooting, and acts from classic country to rockabilly, Billy Bob's has been missed during the shutdown of some like venues during the Novel Coronavirus COVID - 19.
While this announcement is great news for the Fort Worth Stockyard area, Honky Tonks in Nashville are taking some slack for being allowed to stay open because of their ability to serve food and social distance, while smaller bars remain closed due to restrictions. Let's hope that Billy Bob's won't have to face any back lash when they reopen!
