New this year, Cinch World’s Toughest Rodeo will host a concert by up-and-coming Country Artist, Carly Pearce after the rodeo Friday night. Currently working on her debut album, Pearce is entering her first radio tour with more than 50,000 downloads and a brand-new record deal with independent powerhouse Big Machine Label Group. “I’m a testament of the underdog who spun her wheels in town for eight years but never gave up,” she says. “I’m so thankful that I’ve had to claw and cry and kick and scream and lay down at night sometimes going, ‘What did I do wrong? Where did I go wrong?’ It’s making everything so much sweeter.” Admission to the concert is included in your ticket to the rodeo.

Expect edge of your seat action, eight seconds at a time.  The Cinch World’s Toughest Rodeo will spotlight fan favorite events: Bareback Riding, Saddle Bronc Riding and Bull Riding  including the thrilling Winner takes all…Showdown Round.  Back by popular demand is the world famous Professional Bull Jumper, Manu Lataste… you won’t want to miss this!!!
