Bob Schneider was born in Michigan and raised in Germany, where his father pursued a career as a professional opera singer. As a boy, Schneider studied piano and guitar, often performing at family parties and backing his father on drums at nightclubs throughout his youth. He went on to study art – his other primary passion – before moving to Austin and establishing himself as a musician. His fans, who often discover him from being brought to his shows by their friends, are fiercely loyal. Many have attended dozens or even hundreds of shows. Thanks to these fans, Schneider has won more Austin Music Awards than any other musician, including Best Songwriter, Best Musician, and Best Male Vocals, rounding in at 54 total awards to date.
He performs relentlessly, creates new music compulsively, writes poetry, and regularly shows his visual art in galleries. His most recent album “Blood and Bones” further cements his reputation as one of the most versatile, inventive, and engaging songwriters working today. Billy Bob’s Texas is excited to welcome Bob Schneider back to the Honky Tonk Stage!

READ SOUTHALL BAND
Born and raised in the heart of Oklahoma, Read Southall brings a unique sound to country music. Growing up listening to everything from Hank Williams to Johnny Paycheck, he fell fall in love with the soulful stories behind country music. The young artist quickly used these influences to find his fit in the genre. Read started performing in choirs and local bands at a young age, and at age 22 he began performing locally as a solo artist. Overnight it seemed, he had a dedicated fan base in his home state. As he continued to grow as an artist, Read began writing in between performances. Putting personal experiences to paper came naturally for him. “I really enjoy writing music simply because I believe I can connect with people. Words can’t describe the high you feel when someone says your music has gotten them through something. That alone is a greater honor than any dollar compensation,” says Southall. Read Southall Band will take the stage at the World’s Largest Honky Tonk for the first time in March.
