It’s Almost Rodeo Season In Montana! My Top Favorite Rodeo Songs
It's almost rodeo season in Montana, and we all LOVE a good rodeo. We are lucky because we have a lot of small towns surrounding Bozeman, where weekly rodeo is a must. From Livingston, Dillon, Big Timber, and of course Bozeman (along with many others) that host rodeo's throughout the summer.
I was asked the other day, "what's your favorite rodeo/cowboy song?" and I got to thinking. Dang, that is hard, there are so many, right? So in no particular order, here are some of my favorite rodeo songs!
This is an absolute must, and I don't care who ya are. (Ok I actually do). I grew up listening to all of Garth Brooks' hits, which was basically every song he came out with.
Garth Brooks: Rodeo
Next up on the list this song is so well known to the rodeo riders, if you are not familiar with it, you are welcome!
Chris LeDoux: Hooked On An 8 Second Ride
He's addicted to danger/ Rule out passion and pride/ To pain and fear is no stranger/ When his lust needs to be satisfied/ Hooked on an eight-second ride/- 8 Second Ride
Some have heard this song performed by Garth Brooks and Chris LeDoux but little do they know it has been covered by many other artists, like Suzy Boggus. Which do you prefer? Who yodels better? Suzy? Or Garth?
Night Rider's Lament
This is one from a rising artist. He teamed up with the legendary Reba McEntire for this 2019 release.
You can hear it on Yellowstone Season 4 as well.
Again, I could be here all day posting my favorite rodeo songs, or cowboy songs, but I won't. Let me know, what are your favorites?
