Welcome to Joe's Honky Tonk!

I am Joe!! I built Joe’s Honky Tonk so that my friends would have a great place to hang out and have a great time! Kearney needed a country bar with live music, a dance floor and even a VIP Lounge for those special occasions!


I am working hard to bring in great concerts and events. But, I want Joe’s to be the first place you think of at the end of a day or for a night on the town with your buddies. 


Our dance floor is right next to the stage so you can still get a great view of our bands while dancing with your partner, we also have seating areas available for those who would prefer to sit back and watch the great bands and the dancing!


We also have plenty of seating areas so you can sit back and and enjoy yourself, if dancing is not your thing.  With two different bars you can easily get more drinks so the fun times never end and you are not stuck waiting in lines and miss the excitement on the floor!

Chris Colston Live on Feb 4th

East Texas native, Chris Colston has recently sent a storm sweeping through the Texas/ Red Dirt scene with the release of his 2018 EP, “Gone.” The title track surpassed a half-million streams on Spotify in just a few short months after its release and with that, Colston set the bar quite high for himself as well as other upcoming artists in the scene.

Colston’s musical story began when his stepfather signed him up for drum lessons at the age of 7. He knew immediately that he wanted to be a musician and a few years later he picked up the guitar. At 17, Colston formed his first band and they hit the road playing everywhere they could. Colston’s music is heavily influenced by some of the greats he grew up listening to like Lynard Skynard, The Allman Brothers and country legends Merle Haggard and Willie Nelson. His musical sound has continued to grow with inspiration from Whiskey Myers and Blackberry Smoke. Listening to them helped Colston curate his own style of what he describes as “gritty Texas roots combined with a little blues and rock n’ roll.” His powerful vocals are undeniable and his honest, relatable lyrics resonate with his rapidly growing fan base creating a product you cannot deny.

Colston is already back in the studio pushing the limits of his song writing. New music is expected to be released in 2019.
