Employees at Denim and Diamonds on Kell have confirmed the country and western dance hall will soon be closing for good.
Robert Hendrickson has been a bartender at Denim and Diamonds for years and said the club had a good run and that he is not angry about the club closing, but rather sad this is happening.
The bar first opened in December 2011 and has hosted many events over the years including concerts, dance parties, and fashion shows.
Hendrickson said he was notified of the closing of his place of employment through a text message.
Even though he was notified through a text message, Hendrickson said he has no bitter feelings toward the owners, he says he understands it is tough to keep a place like Denim and Diamonds open when there is so much competition in town.
"[With] Lonestar going up against us. We've got Whiskeyta. We've got the Iron Horse. It's so sad that Denim and Diamonds had to make the decision, but I understand it."
Hendrickson said the bar will still be open for the three remaining shows and he already gave the company his word that he would continue to tend bar for the three remaining shows.
He says he knows people don't like change, but he hopes they will still come out and support the business and staff during the last shows and hopes they will remember all the good times they had at Denim and Diamonds.
Here is the lineup for the final shows:
Casey Donahew will be playing the only show left in March on the 24th.
The Eli Young Band will play on April 14th.
The Josh Abbott Band will be playing the last show on April 21st, before doors close for good.
