In addition to its notoriety as a music venue, Cain's Ballroom is also rumored to be haunted by the ghost of Bob Wills himself, and it is thought the ghost may have contributed to the success of the venue.  There have also been sightings of a "lady in red" who has been seen, heard and felt by both employees and patrons.

From Michelle Stegner on 05/23/15

I went to a Floggin Molly concert at Cain's in 2012. Once I arrived, I went to use the ladies room. The stalls were full and I picked one and waited, this girl was on the toilet for a long time and I knew she was there because I could see her feet and shadow. She didnt make noise or really move much and then after waiting even longer, I looked to see if she seemed ok and she was gone! I was completely sober, hadn't even started drinking yet! Creepy
