Casey James to play Billy Bob's Texas July 1

Posted 9:48am on Friday, May. 13, 2011

Lil' surprise over the transom this morning, as Billy Bob's Texas slowly rolls out its list of shows for July on Facebook. We already knew that Steve Earle would be dropping by the world's largest honky-tonk on July 9 and there's that little picnic Willie Nelson's throwing on July 4, but add one more sure-to-be-packed gig to the list: Cool native, Fort Worth resident, occasional visitor to the Keys Lounge and American Idol finalist Casey James, fresh off his stint opening for Nashville stars Sugarland, will come home to Fort Worth July 1 to play Billy Bob's. Tickets, which range from $12-$16, will go on sale at 10 a.m. May 23 via Ticketmaster and BBT's box office.

We now have a new, simpler way for you to enter and search for events, at listings.dfw.com. As always, when you submit an event to appear online, it will also be available for us in our print publication. But now you can simply enter your event and provide an email address, rather than creating a separate account and registering. Our new listings tool is still a work in progress, so we appreciate your patience as we fine-tune it. Please contact us at hsvokos@dfw.com if you have any questions or concerns.
