I walked into pure county, with presence of old artist there to greet me with the smiles they held in so many memorable photos.

Love, Love, Love this place. Doesn't matter what kind of music you like, this is the place to listen to it. So much history has happened in this building.

We went there for happy hour and it was nice and quiet since it is not tourist season. Thank goodness. The weather was perfect, so we were able to sit outside. I wish that all of my trips there were this pleasant.

If you only drink beer, only pay with cash and don't mind the heat this place is for you. One out of the three negatives can be solved by not going during the summer months.

George Strait, Hal Ketchum, Lyle Lovett, Garth Brooks... just a few of the greats who have played here. Unpretentious and definitely worth a visit. You can catch free music most nights, but some shows sell out fast since it is a pretty small venue. Call ahead if you plan to make a special trip down.

If you like live country music and nostalgia from famous singers and the oldest dance hall in Texas you should go here. Good bands sell out so get tickets before hand.
