Austin legend Dale Watson has teamed up with Nashville singer-songwriter James Intveld before at Ginny’s – the best Real Country Honky Tonk in Austin – 5434 Burnet Road in north central Austin.

Ginny, daughter Sharon and the late Don Kalmbach have hosted Austin’s country musicians and other nationally-known bands coming through Austin while serving cheap cold beer, welcoming regulars and new folks and hosting a front-porch like back lot that fills with fans close by where Annie lives. Annie – Ginny’s Resident Chicken – brings scores of music lovers to what Dale describes as the “honkiest-tonkiest beer joint in town” on Sunday afternoons for Chicken Shit Bingo – a now iconic event that mixes Good Sport with a Chicken and Sunday Go To Meetin’.

Folks crowd around -- looking at their number

Ginny takes Annie inside and places her in a cage that rests on the bar’s venerable pool table. Annie struts on a sheet of plywood that’s atop the table. Numbers within square boxes are painted on the wood. If Annie stops and shits on your number – you win the pot.

It’s gonna be a fun show – especially for Ginny and daughter Sharon – who share a fond and long love for Dale and James.
