The 18-time ACM-nominated venue, Billy Bob’s Texas, located in the center of the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, has been forced to postpone its April concerts due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
In order to commemorate the 39th anniversary of Billy Bob’s Texas, starting on April 1 the site's organizers have produced a special livestream watch party, entitled Live at Billy Bob’s Texas, that will feature some of Fort Worth's own local talent. Artists set to perform for this exclusive event will include Abraham Alexander, Austin Allsup, Bonnie Bishop, Chad Prather, Brad Thompson, Grady Spencer, Jack Barksdale, Jerrod Flusche, Johnny Cooper, Josh Weathers, Kris Luv, Matthew McNeal, Michael Lee, Rob Redwine, Smooth Vega, Summer Dean, and more.
Billy Bob's Texas will provide viewers with a virtual tip jar that will allow at-home spectators to donate funds to multiple organizations including the United Way of Tarrant County, Hear Fort Worth, Film Fort Worth Creative Industry Relief Fund which directly supports musicians, visual artists, and filmmakers who have suffered loss of business due to coronavirus outbreak.
Live at Billy Bob's Texas will air exclusively on Circle Media, which launched in January and was curated for enthusiasts of the country lifestyle. The Circle network is responsible for providing country fans with entertainment news, documentaries, movies, and more exclusive content.
Recently, the legendary concert venue also recently partnered with Carter Bloodcare for a special community blood drive which produced a total of 339 units of blood for those in need.
