We are thrilled to welcome country music songwriter Allen Shamblin on board as celebrity host of this year's activities, replacing lontime host, Red Steagall.  Allen was recently inducted into Nashville Songwriters Hall ofFame and has a resume of award winning songs he has written or co-written over the past 20+ years, including He Walked on Water, I Can't Make You Love Me, Don't Laugh at Me, and The House That Built Me, which won Song of the Year at the 44th Country Music Association Awards in 2010.

The golf tournaments will be played on Sunday and Monday, September 30 and October 1 at the Victoria Country Club in Victoria, Texas.  A celebrity group of musicians, professional athletes, and entertainers will join in the fun and festivities at the golf tournaments.

After a very successful and well received transition to a new venue last year, the annual Sunday evening banquet and auction will take place again at the beautiful Spring Creek Place Event Center.  The following evening, Monday, October 1, the culmination of our 31st annual BBYR events occurs at the celebrity showdown and dance at Texas’ second oldest dance hall, Schroeder Hall.  Allen Shamblin will host and lead the final-night event that includes a star-studded lineup of nationally renowned performers from the country music industry.
