Country music fans have another opportunity to catch a Tony Booth performance in Pearland with this year’s, Tony Booth Birthday Bash celebration on Friday, February 2nd and Saturday, February 3rd from 8 p.m. to midnight at Billy’s Hall, 4070 Wells Drive.
“We’re happy to be back in Pearland for this additional date in 2018. We decided to add a second Pearland show between sets at last year’s Tony Booth event in May. We had so much fun reuniting with entertainers and watching the crowd enjoy the music,” according to Booth.

Inducted into the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame in 2014, Booth at 19 became familiar with the comment, “What they call country music today is not really country.” His style of music continues to be considered real country.

The Tony Booth Band won Band of the Year from the Academy of Country Music 1970-1972.
Booth recorded 12 albums for United Artist, Capital, MGM and Heart of Texas. Hit records include Keys in the Mailbox, Lonesome 7-7203, Cinderella, When a Man Loves a Woman, Carwash Blues, Old Faithful, Happy Hour, Secret Love.
