Built in 1924, Cain’s Ballroom in Tulsa is known as the Carnegie Hall of Western Swing. It was home of Bob Wills and the Texas Playboys, who were responsible for western swing, a form of country and western music combined with types of music such as jazz, hillbilly, boogie, and big band swing. Western swing later became rock and roll. The original maple dance floor still exists at Cain’s Ballroom, and concerts featuring today’s musical artists are held there. Concerts in the ballroom throughout the years have influenced performers from all types of music, including Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard.
