A Musical Interlude
It's a Texas thing. You wouldn't understand.
Or maybe you do!
50 lashes upon me for missing Bob Wills Day yet again. I hang my head in shame, it's been far too long since I last attended. I was at the very first and met Bob Wills himself. I have the faded Polaroids to prove it!
Everyone needs to go to Turkey, Texas and experience Bob Wills Day at least once. It's a pilgrimage for us South 40 types.
It's grown from a small gathering of diehard fans into a giant festival full of music, parades, camping, music, dancing, food, carnivals, museums and more music. Great fun for the whole family in Bob's tiny West Texas hometown. Last weekend in April annually.
