Bio: The Western Kountry Klub was originally a skating rink, built in the late 50's. In 1972, the building was purchased by Wanda Hendrick and converted into a dance hall. It was the biggest night spot in the area at the time and today is the oldest known Honky-Tonk in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area that doesn't serve alcohol. In 1992, George Strait was looking for a place to shoot some scenes for his movie "Pure Country". The Western Kountry Klub fit what he was looking for. All of the dance scenes in the movie were shot here. Today, people still come by to tour the building which looks much the same as it did in the movie. But George Strait isn't the only famous face to grace the dance floor, Country music star David Ball also filmed his video "When The Thought of You Catches up with me" at the Klub. Besides Strait and Ball, Budweiser filmed a commercial at the Klub and during the height of it's popularity, and the cast and crew of "Walker, Texas Ranger" ate at the Klub while filming scenes for the series nearby. Nostalgic memorabilia grace the walls of the Klub, and anyone who visits is bound to stare and be transported back in time. So, if you're interested in dancing and/or listening to great live traditional country music, The Western Kountry Klub is for you. OPEN EVERY SATURDAY NIGHT 7 P.M. to 12:30 A.M.
