Aaron Lewis, Eli Young Band, Josh Turner, Sara Evans And More Set To Take The Stage At Billy Bob’s Texas In October

More than just great shows, Billy Bob’s is known for live bull riding, great food and drinks, and for being a mini-museum of musical artifacts donated by some of Country Music’s biggest stars.

 Billy Bob’s is the home of big-name concerts, bull riding and chicken fried steak with a reputation as gigantic as the state itself. With a new dance floor, Billy Bob’s Texas fans will be two-stepping throughout the month of October with top name entertainers gracing its historic stage.

OCT 05 – Frankie Ballard
OCT 06 – Josh Turner
OCT 12 – Green River Ordinance
OCT 13 – Aaron Lewis
OCT 19 – Jon Wolfe
OCT 20 – Sara Evans
OCT 26 – Gary P. Nunn
OCT 27 – Eli Young Band

The 10-time Academy of Country Music “Nightclub of the Year” has had over 17 million visitors since opening in 1981.

Billy Bob’s Texas is not just about the concerts. Nearly 50,000 bulls have bucked in Billy Bob’s Arena to date, and every Friday and Saturday nights at 9:00 pm and 10:00 pm, patrons can watch real bull riders in action at Billy Bob’s. Even a few of Texan-born Country music artists – Cody Johnson and Josh Ward – once got their start riding bucking bulls at Billy Bob’s before venturing onto a career as a musician.

Billy Bob’s VP of Marketing Pam Minick was once told by legendary Beatles drummer Ringo Star on his arrival, ““I told me band mates; get ready we’re going to see some real bull riding here.”

Billy Bob’s has also collected a variety of historical artifacts which are on display throughout the venue. In the appropriately named “Guitar Bar,” patrons can check out a large autographed guitar collection, and over 1,400 guitar picks which have been donated by many of the legends that graced the stages at Billy Bob’s over the years.

Country Crooner Josh Turner to Take the Stage at The Orleans Showroom November 1


Country Crooner Josh Turner to Take the Stage at The Orleans Showroom November 1

Grammy nominee and multiplatinum recording artist Josh Turner will perform at the Orleans Showroom on November 1.

After graduating high school, Turner moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music and enrolled in Belmont University. After college, his fledgling career got a boost in 2001 during his debut on the “Grand Ole Opry,” when he first introduced his hit song, “Long Black Train.”

Known for his soulful vocals and thick South Carolina accent, Turner sites Johnny Cash’s unconventional “At San Quentin” and Lyle Lovett’s “Live in Texas” as inspiration for his own music career.

Turner’s debut album’s title track, “Long Black Train,” was his breakthrough single release. His second album, “Your Man” was released in 2006 and accounted for his first two #1 hits “Your Man” and “Would You Go with Me.” Released in 2007, Turner’s album “Everything is Fine” included a #2 track titled “Firecracker.” 2010’s “Haywire” contained Turner’s biggest hit, the #1 single “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” and another #1 in “All Over Me.”

Turner’s most recent album, “Punching Bag,” was released in 2012. The album’s lead single “Time Is Love” was the biggest hit of 2012, according to Billboard Year-End. The same year, Turner released “Live Across America,” a full-length album featuring audio of live performances throughout his tour.

Showtime each evening is 8 p.m. Tickets are available starting from $54.95, plus tax and convenience fees, and can be purchased at any Boyd Gaming Box Office, by calling 702.365.7075, or visiting www.orleanscasino.com.
