Bill Murray has recently been putting together quite a side career that involves appearing in the most random places to support cool country and roots artists. Murray did this in May when he showed up to the dive bar Filthy McNasty’s in Ft. Worth to take in the music of some local songwriters while in town for a golf tournament.
After first stopping by The Longhorn Saloon in the town’s historic Stockyards District, the comedian sauntered into nearby Filthy McNasty’s to take in a songwriters night that featured up-and-comer Skylar Payne, Clete Bradley of Clete Bradley and the Mood, and songwriter Zach Coffey.
So Murray shows up to the concert, heads to the box office, buys every ticket remaining for the show, and hands them out to everyone who is standing in line. A long-standing staunch supporter of music, Bill Murray has been caught red handed going nuts at Chris Stapleton concerts and other live events.
