Texas Landmark Replaces 37 Year Old Dance Floor
It doesn't matter which part of Texas you are from, you know about Billy Bob's Texas in Fort Worth. Dubbed the "world's largest honky tonk," Billy Bob's is a staple in the country music scene. And now after 37 years and more than 17 million two-stepping visitors, Billy Bob’s Texas has replaced the iconic dance floor! Now, you might be thinking, why would they do this to the iconic dance floor. Simple, all the dancing just wore it down. As much as they would like to save it, 37 years of boot-scootin' have taken it's toll.
To celebrate the new milestone, the new dance floor was graced by one lucky couple who got the opportunity to conduct the first dance. “Dance enthusiasts came from around the country,” said Billy Bob’s Pam Minick. “Fans and friends of Billy Bob’s Texas were able to take a piece of the award-winning club home with them as we distributed segments of the historic dance floor to patrons celebrating this milestone.”
In addition to the millions of visitors that have enjoyed the 2,000 square foot dance floor, it has been featured in the movies, 'Necessary Roughness,' 'Pure Country,' 'Baja, Oklahoma,' 'Over The Top,' and several music videos including the most recent one, "Burn Out" by the Academy of Country Music’s ‘New Group of the Year’ Midland.
