Cowtown Opry Club is a group of performers who are mighty proud of the great musical heritage of Texas, and we do what we love best - preserve it, promote it and perform it! Folks from all over the world come to our Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, just to experience the legacy of the Texas cowboy and the American West.
Cowtown Opry performers have the privilege of continuing this legacy through music. They are encouraged to develop an appreciation for learning and performing the unique music of Texas, from the ballads of the singing cowboy to the rhythms of western swing.
We specialize in bringing western music shows, free to the public in the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District. We present both vintage and contemporary western music, Texas music, music from the singing cowboy movies, old time cowboy ballads, and western swing –always setting forth that unique style that is associated with American cowboy music. Contrary to the popular conception, this genre is distinctly separate from country/pop styles, and we exist to prove that difference.
Cowtown Opry Club coordinators & show hosts provide guidance through songlists, lyrics, and rehearsals by request, in addition to providing performance opportunities.
CTO performing members and Buckaroos are expected to make efforts to expand a personal western music repertoire, appear in classic western attire, make timely arrivals for shows, and pay annual dues.
