Over the past 60 years, John T. Floore Country Store has been the showcase for some of the biggest names in American music. "The Home of Willie Nelson", this authentic Texas Honky Tonk has hosted such stars as Bob Wills, Ernest Tubb, Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan and Merle Haggard to name a few. Approved as a "Texas Historic Landmark" by Gov. Ann Richards, John T. Floore has gained world fame over the past 60 years, having been featured on "60 Minutes" news program, as well as in such publications as National Geographic and regularly in Texas Monthly. In the March 2001 issue of Texas Monthly, John T. Floore Country Store was listed as one of the "50 Things Every Texan Should Do" Opened in 1942 by Mr. John T. Floore, himself, John T. Floore Country Store was not a store at all, but a unique Texas Dance Hall and Cafe. Renowned for its world famous tamales and homemade bread. John T. Floore is a favorite of locals and travelers alike. Offering good food, a cold beer and all the boot scootin' you can stand, it has prospered as the same business in the same location for 60 years, and becomes more popular every year. Musical "birthplace" of Willie Nelson, Willie immortalized John T. Floore in his hit recording "Shotgun Willie". John T. Floore and Wille Nelson were partners in the original Willie Nelson Music Company. Floore's has also been a music-set location for many film productions over the years. Upon entering John T. Floore Country Store, the first thing most people notice is the hundreds of autographed photos on the walls. From Bob Wills and Brooks and Dunn, to John Wayne and Patrick Swayze, there is hardly a blank wall space for the entire length of this 6,700 square foot building. Decorated with decades of antique memorabilia, and the original, solid oak tables and chairs, the interior is strewn with year-round Christmas lights that cast just the right atmosphere for a fun-filled evening. The outdoor dance floor under the stars is a favorite of all who visit. The casual, relaxed atmosphere of this Texas landmark is known for its "family" environment. John T. Floore's is also respected for hosting several annual events for community charitable fundraising. From street dances to trail rides, John T. Floore's has covered the gamut of entertainment and philanthropy in South Texas.
