LIVE AT BILLY BOB’S TEXAS SERIES
CELEBRATES 20TH ANNIVERSARY WITH SOME OF
COUNTRY MUSIC’S BIGGEST STARS’ RECORDINGS

Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, The Charlie Daniels Band, Asleep at the Wheel, and David Allan Coe Recordings Turned Into AXS-TV Specials

In 1998, in partnership with Smith Music Group, led by Rick Smith, Sr., Billy Bob’s Texas began recording live performances from select artists taking the stage of the award-winning nightclub to be part of their Live at Billy Bob’s Texas series. The series launched with back to back recordings of Pat Green and Merle Haggard. Now, in 2018, the famed series is celebrating its 20th Anniversary.

“The Live at Billy Bob’s recordings give music fans who haven’t been to The World’s Largest Honky Tonk an opportunity to hear and feel the energy of a live show,” says Billy Bob’s VP of Marketing, Pam Minick. “For those who have experienced it in person, it’s another chance to relive it all over again. The series really captures the diversity of Billy Bob’s as we’ve recorded everything from Texas music newcomers to country music legends.”

Artists who have participated in the series range from national country music stars like Tanya Tucker, Roy Clark, T. Graham Brown, Exile, Johnny Lee, Larry Gatlin & The Gatlin Brothers, Collin Raye, Mark Wills, Lynn Anderson, Joe Diffie, Janie Fricke, Earl Thomas Conley, Eddy Raven, Michael Martin Murphey, Doug Stone, T.G. Sheppard and John Conlee to the biggest names on the Texas music scene including Cross Canadian Ragweed, Jack Ingram, Jason Boland & the Stragglers, Kevin Fowler, Wade Bowen, Randy Rogers Band, Stoney LaRue, Charlie Robison and more.

Billy Bob’s Texas is known for making cameo appearances in many music videos and several movies, but the Live at Billy Bob’s Texas series made its way to the television screen with Merle Haggard, Willie Nelson, The Charlie Daniels Band, Asleep at the Wheel, and David Allan Coe’s concert recordings filmed and aired on AXS-TV, which continue to re-air.

“It was such an honor and thrill to record my CD, Live at Billy Bob’s, because I could take that story all across the country, raving about the biggest honky-tonk in America! – Janie Fricke

“I remember recording my Live at Billy Bob’s project. There was a huge crowd there that night and they were hootin’ & hollerin’. It continues to be one of our best selling CDs and people tell me all the time how much they like it! Thanks to Smith Music Group and Billy Bob’s! – T. Graham Brown

NATIONWIDE CLUB CONCERTS RAISE MORE THAN $36,000

FOR ACM LIFTING LIVES®

 During the past three months, club shows around the country have collectively raised more than $36,000 for ACM Lifting Lives®, the charitable arm of the Academy of Country Music.  Shows featuring Josh Abbott, Wade Bowen, Kristian Bush, Tyler Farr, Kyle Park, Chase Rice, Thomas Rhett, Chris Stapleton, Josh Thompson, Randy Rogers Band and The Swon Brothers donated a portion of ticket sales to ACM Lifting Lives, which will go to help fund organizations that are improving lives through the power of music.

Clubs included Billy Bob’s in Fort Worth, TX, Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace in Bakersfield, TX, Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta, GA, Coyote Joe’s in Charlotte, NC, Denim & Diamonds in Mesa, AZ and Wichita Falls, TX, Dusty Armadillo in Rootstown, OH, Joe’s Bar in Chicago, IL and Rockin Rodeo in Midland, TX.

“We are so thankful to have the support of the venues and country music artists who participated in this effort and provided nights of great live music to benefit ACM Lifting Lives,” said Ed Warm, ACM board member and co-owner of Joe’s Bar in Chicago, who played a part in helping to develop the fundraiser.

“As we look toward the future, the board set a goal this year to grow ACM Lifting Lives as a recognizable name and to promote what we do as an organization on a national level,” said ACM Lifting Lives Manager Hannah Martin. “We couldn’t be more proud of the success of these club benefit shows and with the continued support of club owners and artists across the country we are hopeful that this will be an annual initiative to spread our mission for years to come!”

As part of the initiative, fans who attended were encouraged to take a photo of their ticket and tweet it tagging @ACMAwards, using #ACMLiftingLivesBenefit.  One lucky fan won a trip to the 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday, April 6, 2014 in Las Vegas, NV via the Twitter contest.
