Happy birthday, Billy Bob’s! Here’s to 40 years of honky tonk and 40 years of a great partnership of boot scootin’ in Justin Boots! That’s a pretty impressive feat to have a longstanding partnership such as that.

Billy Bob’s Texas first opened April 1, 1981 with a live concert from Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers. Exactly 40 years later, the World’s Largest Honky Tonk will kick off its year-long celebration by re-booting their inaugural opening with the Gatlin Brothers. Justin Boots will help celebrate this milestone anniversary throughout the year with monthly boot giveaways, exclusive items in the inside gift store, and more.

“From Boot Scootin’ to Bull Riding, Justin Boots has always been a part of Billy Bob’s Texas,” says Pam Minick from Billy Bob’s Texas. “We have been proud to partner with Justin Boot Company for the past 40 years. I come to work every day in my Justin Boots, and I can’t imagine a better fit for a partnership than two Fort Worth Legends – Justin Boots and Billy Bob’s Texas.”

“Generations have grown up with these two Fort Worth icons, Billy Bob’s Texas and Justin Boots,” says Darla Fisher from Justin Boots. “We are proud to be an original sponsor of the World’s Largest Honky Tonk from day one and look forward to the next forty years together! We hope you’ll stand alongside Justin Boots, Cavender’s, Panhandle, Springhill Suites by Marriott, and Courtyard by Marriott in offering well- deserved congratulations to our friends at the World’s Largest Honky Tonk on this milestone anniversary.”

As part of the year-long celebration, Justin Boots invites visitors and locals to celebrate this iconic Fort Worth staple and participate in the exciting events that lay ahead for 2021.
