Put on your cowboy boots and join country music legends as they sing and dance the night away at Golden Nugget Las Vegas during this year’s National Finals Rodeo Dec. 5 through 13. Guests can enjoy live music and party ‘til the cows come home with a wide variety of country artists such as Terri Clark, Clay Walker, John Michael Montgomery, Charlie Daniels Band, Ronnie Milsap, Tracy Lawrence, Pam Tillis & Lorrie Morgan, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and Jamey Johnson as they perform live at The Showroom inside the Golden Nugget Las Vegas.

Terri Clark – Dec. 5 at 10:00 p.m.
Terri Clark was the first Canadian woman to be inducted into the Grand Ole Opry. Her hits include: “Better Things To Do,” “When Boy Meets Girl,” “Poor Poor Pitiful Me,” “I Just Wanna Be Mad,” and “I Wanna Do It All.”

Clay Walker – Dec. 6 at 10:00 p.m.
Certain artists just seem to have an innate sense of what it takes to please an audience. Clay Walker is one of those artists. Whether on stage or in the recording studio, Walker never gives less than a hundred percent, and it’s that kind of dedicated work ethic combined with God given talent that have made him one of the most successful country acts of the past decade. He first topped the Billboard country singles chart in 1993 with “What’s It To You” and followed with his consecutive No. 1 hit “Live Until I Die.” Since then, he’s placed 31 titles on the charts with 11 No. 1 singles to date and 6 platinum and gold records.

John Michael Montgomery – Dec. 7 at 10:00 p.m.
Academy of Country Music’s Top Male Vocalist in the 90s, John Michael Montgomery entertains in the 600-seat showroom with “Sold,” “Be My Baby Tonight,” “I Swear,” and “Life’s A Dance.”

Charlie Daniels Band – Dec. 8 at 10:00 p.m.
Rock out country style with Charlie Daniels Band at the Golden Nugget. Charlie Daniels is partly Western and partly Southern. His signature “bull rider” hat and belt buckle, his lifestyle on the Twin Pines Ranch (a boyhood dream come true), his love of horses, cowboy lore and the heroes of championship rodeo, Western movies, and Louis L’Amour novels, identify him as a Westerner. The son of a lumberjack and a Southerner by birth, his music – rock, country, bluegrass, blues, gospel – is quintessentially Southern. This band is sure to keep you entertained all night.

Ronnie Milsap – Dec. 9 at 10:00 p.m.
Grammy Award-winning country singer and musician, Ronnie Milsap returns to the Golden Nugget. Swoon to the hits that have made him a legend including “Smoky Mountain Rain”, “I Wouldn’t Have Missed It For the World” and “Lost in the Fifties Tonight.” Witness this legend in the intimate 600-seat showroom.

Tracy Lawrence – Dec. 10 at 10:00 p.m.
Tracy Lawrence started working in honky tonk when he was 17 years old and moved to Nashville in 1990. He recorded his first album, Sticks and Stones, which sold over 500,000 copies. Country hits from that album included “Today’s Lonely Fool,” “Runnin’ Behind” and “Somebody Paints the Wall.” In 1993, Lawrence enjoyed a hat trick of number 1s, “Alibis,” “Can’t Break It to My Heart” and “My Second Home.” In 1996, he reached number 1 again with “Time Marches On” and “Is That A Tear.”

Pam Tillis & Lorrie Morgan – Dec. 11 at 10:00 p.m.
American country music singer-songwriter Pam Tillis and country music singer Lorrie Morgan return to the Golden Nugget. Originally a demo singer in Nashville, Tennessee, Tillis was signed to Warner Bros. Records in 1981 and then went on to release three certified platinum records including Homeward Looking Angel, Sweethearts Dance, and a Greatest Hits Compilation. Lorrie Morgan charted her first single in 1978 and has since then charted more than 25 singles, including “Five Minutes,” “What Part of No” and “I Didn’t Know My Own Strength.”

Ray Wylie Hubbard – Dec. 12 at 10:00 p.m.
When it comes to down ’n’ dirty roots ’n’ roll, nobody in the wide world of Americana music today does it better than Ray Wylie Hubbard. From his humble beginnings as an Oklahoma folkie in the ’60s to his wild ride through the ’70s progressive country movement, and onward through the honky-tonk fog of the ’80s to his sobriety-empowered comeback as a songwriter’s songwriter in the ’90s, Hubbard was already a bona fide legend by the time he really found his groove right at the turn of the century. Beginning with 2001’s aptly-titled Eternal and Lowdown through to his latest and greatest release, 2015’s The Ruffian’s Misfortune, he has spent well over a decade now chasing hellhounds through muddy waters and deep into the underbelly of the blues, with a Lightnin’ Hopkins gleam in his eyes and a Rolling Stones swagger in his step.

Jamey Johnson – Dec. 13 at 10:00 p.m.
Jamey Johnson is an American country music artist. Signed to BNA Records in 2005, Johnson made his debut with his single “The Dollar,” the title track to his 2006 album The Dollar. Johnson was dropped from BNA in 2006 and signed to Mercury Nashville Records in March 2008, releasing his second album, the gold-certified That Lonesome Song. This album produced two singles, the Top 10 hit “In Color” and “High Cost of Living.” Johnson has since released two more albums, The Guitar Song in 2010 and Living for a Song: A Tribute to Hank Cochran in 2012. In addition to most of his own material, Johnson has co-written singles for Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard, Trace Adkins, George Strait, James Otto, Joe Nichols and Jessie James Decker.

Golden Nugget will host a variety of country music’s biggest stars in The Showroom starting Thursday, Dec. 5. Each concert will begin at 10 p.m. following the rodeo. Tickets are on sale now with select shows starting at $29, plus taxes and fees. Ticket prices are subject to change without notice. Tickets are available here.

Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic — Concerts, Food Trucks and Honoring Fallen Heroes

On Independence Day, Ron White – America’s Memory Expert tackles Operation Enduring Memory and a Food Truck Court will satisfy a variety of tastes and a full day of concerts

Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic always provides good times and great entertainment. This year’s 40th anniversary event will have a strong patriotic tribute on Independence Day. Ron White is without question the nation’s #1 Memory Expert. He is a veteran of the War in Afghanistan and 2 Time USA Memory Champion. White has memorized all 2,200 fallen heroes from Afghanistan, their rank, 1st name and last (7,000 words) in order of their death. He’s traveling the USA writing the names out strictly from memory with no notes… his way of saying ‘You are not forgotten.’ It’s a powerful tribute that is getting national media coverage. It will take 10 hours for White to complete the task on a 50-foot wall at Willie’s Picnic.

Willie Nelson celebrated his 80th birthday at the end of April and celebrates the 40th annual Fourth of July Picnic. The Fort Worth Stockyards “North Forty” field will again be the site of the highly anticipated annual all-day outdoor concert with tons of star-power. Music for all ages includes Gary Allan, The Randy Rogers Band, Kris Kristofferson, Ryan Bingham, Jamey Johnson, and Justin Moore. Picnic staples Ray Wylie Hubbard, Johnny Bush, and Ray Price will return. In addition, his family – son Lukas and daughters Paula Nelson and Amy Nelson will join Willie.

“We are thrilled to play a small part in the 40-year history of the picnic and do it in the Fort Worth Stockyards. Our mission this year was to design a monumental event worthy of a 40-year anniversary and Willie’s 80th birthday. When you see it you will agree.” Said Concho Minick.

Two outdoor stages will provide non-stop entertainment from noon until night. Special areas including the Metro PCS Cool Zone and Svedka/Rex Goliath Sky Box will add to the concert-going experience and provide guests with a place to stay cool.

In addition to Billy Bob’s Bar-B-Que on site at Willie’s Picnic, Fort Worth Food Trucks will provide a variety of delicious fare through the day and evening to satisfy any taste. Pompeii – Explosive Italian Cuisine; Oink n’ Moo Bar B Q; Gepetto’s Pizza; Hummingbird Sweet Shoppe; and Enticed Gourmet Snow Cones have already secured their spaces.

Tickets to Willie’s Picnic include all-day free admission to the world’s largest honky tonk and cool zone, Billy Bob’s Texas, where music kicks off at 2:15 with The Quebe Sisters Band, followed by Amber Digby, Jody Nix, David Allan Coe, and Dale Watson.

Tickets are $35 in advance $55 at the gate – on sale at www.williespicnic.com  or by calling 817-624-7117. A limited number of VIP and Sky Box tickets are still available.

About Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic
Long before Lollapalooza and Coachella Music Festival, there was Willie’s Picnic — an outdoor music festival that began in a small Texas town that would continue for decades.

The event has changed much in its nearly four decades, culminating into this year’s event, the 40th annual– an all-day concert outside of Billy Bob’s Texas with a fan base spanning several generations.

At its start in 1973, the hippie movement was well under way when a 40-year-old Willie Nelson decided to hold a music festival in a field in Dripping Springs. Kris Kristofferson, Waylon Jennings and Tom T. Hall headlined the festival that brought over 40,000 people to the inaugural run of what would become a Texas tradition.

Over the next 3 decades the picnic continued to hold steady in fans and entertainers, moving around various cities in Texas, from Austin to Luckenbach.

It was a big deal in 2004 when Nelson announced at a press conference in the Fort Worth Stockyards that he was bringing his picnic to one of his boyhood homes – Fort Worth. The announcement made the front page of the Dallas Morning News and the mayor of Fort Worth gave Nelson a key to the city.

In 2011 and 2012, a scaled down version of Willie’s 4th of July Picnic was held inside and outside Billy Bob’s Texas.

About Billy Bob’s Texas
