Country music fans take over Padua, Italy for Billy Bob’s Country Fair
The event drew over twenty five thousand country music fans over the span of three days and confirmed what many have known for quite some time: Country music is not just for Americans.
The event featured a live concert performance from Texas country music star Aaron Watson plus live horseback and livestock demonstrations, a line dancing and two-step competition, and even an American car parade with many of the cars on display throughout the weekend.
Concho Minick, president of Billy Bob’s Texas, put the event together and is very pleased with the results.
“Billy Bob’s has been on a long quest to fill the need for the country music experience in Italy. It is so fulfilling to see us finally get it done”, says Minick. “We are being told this is the largest event of its kind to date in Italy. With that kind of success it makes it easy to reload for another one.”
While no plans have been made yet for a follow up event in Italy, Billy Bob’s Texas and event organizers are eager to find out what the future holds.
