Yee-haw! Longhorn Ballroom getting moola for redo to the tune of $2 million.

Investors that purchased a landmark Dallas honky-tonk are asking for some help to spiff the place up.

LaFrance's S&D Longhorn Partners LLC is asking the city of Dallas for a half-million-dollar economic grant to preserve and upgrade the Longhorn Ballroom.

LaFrance told the city he plans to spend $2 million fixing up the place over the next two years.

The property includes two buildings with more than 43,000 square feet.
