Worlds Toughest Cowboy Rodeo
The Worlds Toughest Cowboy Rodeo is coming back to Minnesota and I am so excited to go to the event. Just incase there is one or two of you out there that don't know what the Worlds Toughest Cowboy Rodeo is I will fill you in... Toughest Cowboy is the closest you will get to the real American west. It tests strength, endurance and genuine grit as twelve cowboys compete in three gut-wrenching, roughstock disciplines—bareback riding, saddle bronc riding, and bull riding. These are the only cowboys in the world who dare to ride two broncs and one bull in the same night. It is not for the weak—an iron man competition where only the strongest will endure to be crowned the Toughest Cowboy Champion and walk away with the deed to their own Wyoming Ranch. This is a rodeo event like no other. In addition to the Toughest Cowboy competition, the event features the world’s most-famous cowboy, Whiplash “The Cowboy Monkey”. Whiplash has thrilled fans around the world with his dog-riding cowboy antics. Adding to the night’s entertainment there will wild chuck wagon races and electrifying women’s barrel racing. After the dust settles the party continues with the post-rodeo “Party on the Dirt” concert. This year’s tour includes performances by Nashville’s Music Row 2008 “Breakout Band of the Year” Whiskey Falls and Grammy-nominated songwriter Keith Anderson, who is best know for his hit single “I Still Miss You” and his recent release “Somebody Needs A Hug.” I went to this event two years ago and everything about it is amazing! The cowboys are thrilling to watch, Whiplash is hillarious, and the concert in the dirt is so much fun. It is a huge red neck party that I can't wait to be a part of again. I just purchased my Worlds Toughest Cowboy tickets. The Xcel Energy Center tickets are available for the two nights they will be here which is January 30th and 31st. I hope to see all of you there!
