About Cheyenne Frontier Days™:

In the frontier west of a young United States, cowboys roamed the vast expanses of land as they tended cattle on the open prairie. After months out on the range, the cowboys returned to their ranches, sometimes partaking in friendly bucking horse competitions with other cowboys in the area. On September 23, 1897, organizers harnessed the spirit of these impromptu matches of cowboy skill, and the “Daddy of ‘em All®” was born. Since then, Cheyenne Frontier Days™ has been at the heart of the cowboy way of life. Through recessions, depressions, wars, natural disasters and every conceivable kind of weather, the “Daddy of ‘em All”® has been recognized as the greatest celebration of Western spirit the world has ever known. Each year during the last full week of July, the Magic City of the Plains brings together rodeo fans, country music lovers, Western enthusiasts and fun-seekers from all 50 states and 23 foreign countries on five continents. 

Get your roughstock served up full-throttle, non-stop and outdoors in the heart of the American West. Every afternoon features bull riding, saddle bronc, bareback, rookie saddle bronc, steer wrestling, team roping, tie-down roping, women’s barrel racing and the famous wild horse race. Jumbotron screens offer big, bright front row experience views of all the action! Cheyenne Frontier Days™ has been voted “PRCA Large Outdoor Rodeo of the Year” 16 times by rodeo cowboys and stock contractors. 

When the sun goes down on Cheyenne Frontier Days™ each night, the stars really do come out! Frontier Nights® has featured the biggest names in musical entertainment such as George Strait, Aerosmith, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, Tim McGraw and Lady Antebellum to name a few.

About Flo Rida:

Born Tramer Dilliard, Flo Rida was raised by a single mother in Miami's rough neighborhood of Carol City, Florida. Music helped Flo Rida stay on the straight path. His father was a talented musician, who encouraged his son to express himself through music. Growing up, Flo Rida was exposed to all kinds of music, thanks in large part to his sisters, some of whom formed a local gospel group. When he was a teenager, Flo Rida found local success rapping with a group called the Groundhoggz. At 18, he became the hype man for Fresh Kid Ice from 2 Live Crew. Eventually, Flo Rida caught the attention of DeVante Swing, formerly of famed R&B group Jodeci, and spent a few years in Los Angeles working with him. Unable to land a record deal, Flo Rida returned home to Miami and in late 2006, hooked up with Poe Boy Entertainment and its CEO Elric "E-Class" Prince. On December 20, 2006, Flo Rida inked a deal with Atlantic Records and in 2009 started his own management company, Strong Arm, with longtime friend and manager Lee "Freezy" Prince. With the success of his management company, Flo Rida and Prince launched their own record label, IMG, in June 2011. With his musical success, Flo Rida got back to his roots of giving back and started Big Dreams for Kids, a non-profit foundation that is committed to inspiring future leaders.

About Chris Janson:

Nashville country artist Chris Janson was born to entertain crowds. Last year, his breakthrough #1 platinum single "Buy Me a Boat" was the seventh best-selling country song of the year, although his professional music career began more than 10 years ago. The "Holdin' Her" singer has written multiple top-charting hits, including "Truck Yeah" (Tim McGraw), "That's How I'll Always Be" (Tim McGraw), and "I Love This Life" (LoCash), in addition to over 25 additional hit songs recorded by a long list of established artists. Janson has been nominated for multiple awards and won "Country Song of the Year" for "Buy Me a Boat" at the iHeartRadio Music Awards.

About Laura Lou

Laura Lou Journalist

Beginning about age 13, music always been my “safe place”, my “escape”, it became a part of who I am. My background includes being a photographer/journalist for newspapers, magazines and radio stations and more recently I have been an artist manager. What I continue to strive to learn is, what is important to the fans/readers? I find that the answer is always that they want to feel close to the artist they are supporting. The human contact that we all need is something that I want to deliver to anyone that happens to read something I write or see a photograph I shoot. It is important to me to provide that experience, because I am, after all, still always a “fan” and that giddy 13-year-old girl is simply amazed! I never imagined that my passion and love for music would lead me where I am today! I use the hashtag #iamtheluckiestgirliknow because I cannot believe how blessed I am! I’m excited to see “what happens next” and take you all along with me! This is going to be amazing…
