It doesn’t get more Texas than John T. Floore’s Country Store. For 75 years, Floore’s has hosted Texas and American music legends alike. This quintessential Texas Honky Tonk has hosted such legendary performers as Willie Nelson, Bob Wills, Ernest Tubb, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, and Bob Dylan, to name a few. Known by many as the musical “birthplace” of Willie Nelson, Willie immortalized John T. Floore in his hit recording “Shotgun Willie.” So much so, Texas Monthly listed John T. Floore’s Country Store as one of the “50 Things Every Texan Should Do.” In 1942, when Mr. John T. Floore opened his store, it wasn’t a store at all – it was a Texas-style dance hall and café. Today, Floore’s continues to host live music and dances, while serving up its world famous tamales and other great “Texas Cafe” style food, and ice cold beer.
