Wait, you didn't know that Hank Williams Jr. was born at Shreveport's Red River Sanitarium in 1949? Well, you learn something new every day!

I think it's safe to say that ol' Bocephus is a living legend and that's why Billy Bob's Texas had him in as part of their 40th-anniversary celebrations this past weekend. But Hank Jr. wasn't alone. Nope, he brought a few of his rowdy friends along for the ride, namely east Texas' own Miranda Lambert, Kid Rock, and his son Sam. Needless to say, the fans present that night at Billy Bob's Texas were pretty excited judging from the comments on this post from Billy Bob's Facebook page.

Hank Williams Jr. brought a few of his rowdy friends to hang out tonight. You never know who you’re gonna see at the World’s Largest Honky Tonk!

Sure, the sound isn't great, but can you imagine being in the crowd for this?!?!

Just to keep the whole Shreveport at Billy Bob's Texas theme going, Shreveport native Kenny Wayne Shepherd has just added a show there Saturday, July 3, 2021, and tickets go on sale this Friday, April 9th at 10 am.

It's crazy when you think about it, but Billy Bob's Texas has hosted over 17 million visitors since April 1981 when they opened in the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District. In honor of their 40th anniversary, they've booked some of the biggest acts, well, ever!
