Turkey, Texas

Turkey was the home of Bob Wills, one of the all-time greats of western swing. Bob Wills and His Texas Playboys are credited with introducing horns, drums and electric guitars to country music, changing its course forever.

This is the welcome sign on SR 86 west of town.

This monument to Wills stands in a city park.

Here is a close-up of two panels from the monument.

On the east side of town, the welcome sign honors Wills and wild turkeys.
