Holding true to our roots and looking forward to the future, this year’s Bob Wills Day is going to be one for the books.
Thursday Night we will have Billy Mata and The Texas Tradition kicking us off with one heck of a night of dancing.
Friday, y’all buckle up, because we are about to have a dust up! The incredible Jake Hooker and the Incomparable Jason Roberts, along with their bands, will be throwing it back and throwing it down with a good old battle dance. Just like when Bob Wills and Spade Cooley would go head to head and wow the crowds, we can’t wait to be there for this ONE of a KIND night.

And then there was Saturday! The pièce de résistance of our three day extravaganza in Turkey, Texas! We can’t wait to tell you about all the other amazing things happening in town, but let’s talk about the music, y’all. Bob Wills’ Texas Playboys under the Direction of Jason Roberts will be telling the STORY OF BOB WILLS and Bob Wills Day on the Townsend Outdoor Stage in the afternoon. Then get ready to boot scoot! Miss Brennen Leigh will be warming up the stage for the man himself, Mr. Jody Nix and his Texas Cowboys. With Brennen Leigh's sweet voice and Jody's fire playing, can you think of a better combination to crescendo our weekend of Western Swing?
Our good friends at Michelob ULTRA and Budweiser Distributing Company of Amarillo are making this incredible music line up possible as our King of Western Swing Music Partner and y’all go ahead and tip your hats at them.
These Musicians. This Line Up. Our Town. We are keeping the heart beat of Western Swing alive and well and we can’t wait to see you in April!
