Simple & True. Weldon Henson is to country music what an ice cold beer is on a “long, hard, hot, day” – refreshing. The first few notes out of his mouth and you know your witnessing the real deal. Henson’s shows are a throw-back to the vintage honky-tonk and Texas culture that brought your grandparents together combined with the rock ‘n roll attitude and approach of the more modern men of Texas country. Prepare to dance to what people think is arguably the best authentic and brand new honky-tonk music Texas has to offer. Or, just sit down for a few, take a deep breath, and enjoy Texas Made Honky Tonk.
If you want to do the Texas two-step, this is the place to go. The dance hall is internationally known as an authentic honky-tonk. Willie Nelson, George Straight, and Dolly Parton have performed here. Don't miss the memorabilia room, aptly nicknamed "the tourist trap room," which is filled with photos, hats, and other country-music treasures.
