Many of you already know, but in case you aren’t aware, W.R. passed away Thursday afternoon, May 12th.
W.R. was the founder of Nocona Nights, and with the help of Patti has been its inspiration and guidance for the last 20 years. His idea created one of the most successful and long-running entertainment venues in North Texas, enjoyed by so many of us over the years.
He was the music producer and talent scout for the shows, booking the best performers from Texas and New Mexico. They considered it an honor to be invited by W.R. to come to Nocona to perform. He had a great reputation in the Texas music scene.
We all owe him a debt of gratitude for his creativity and for providing us with many wonderful years of entertainment; introducing us to musicians we may never have heard before.
Next season, our 20th year, will be dedicated to his memory.
