Come and dance all day and into the evening on Saturday, September 12, and help us once again celebrate the birthdays of Western Swing Hall of Fame Members, Bill & Jim Boyd! Jim and Bill "Cowboy Rambler" Boyd, native sons of Ladonia, are both honored inductees of the Texas Western Swing Hall of Fame. Their contributions to the genre is undeniable with songs such as Under The Double Eagle, I Can't Tame Wild Women, Going Back To My Texas Home and many more. Bands which the brothers formed or played in, together and singly, such as The Cowboy Ramblers, Rhythm Aces, Sons of the Pioneers and the Light Crust Doughboys cemented their place in music history. Bill Boyd was also awarded a Star on Hollywood’s walk of fame, and we’ll be showing some of his films. So, bring your lawn chairs, dancing shoes and join us for food, fun and entertainment!
