Overview

Music and the sport of rodeo have been stable mates for decades. Cowboys have used music as a source of inspiration, a catalyst to help unlock their true potential when they need to perform at the highest level under the most intense pressure. Musicians have looked to rodeo and the spirit of the American cowboy as subjects of numerous songs, many of which have found their way both the top of the charts and into people’s hearts. There is a special link between music and rodeo, and Sony BMG is paying tribute to that unique bond with this one-of-a-kind boxed set. In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Sony BMG has gathered a song list from a “Who’s Who” of country music stars, from Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings to Gene Autry and Brooks & Dunn. Never before have rodeo’s most beloved and treasured songs been available in a collection such as this. It’s a must-have for rodeo and country music lovers of all ages. What better way to celebrate 50 years of the world’s greatest rodeo than with a boxed set of the most celebrated and treasured rodeo-related country music songs of all time?
