Kick off the 2015 San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo with country crooner Joe Nichols. Look forward to tapping your boots along to classics like “Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off,” “Gimme That Girl” and “Brokenheartsville” as well as songs from his most recent album, Crickets such as, “Yeah,” “Sunny and 75” and “Hard to Be Cool.” (Do you know how PRCA rodeo began? Many believe that rodeo started as a little friendly competition between neighboring ranch hands to see who could finish daily tasks as quickly and efficiently as possible. Now, it’s grown into “America’s sport.” From roughstock (bareback, saddle bronc and bull riding) to timed events (steer wrestling, team roping, tie-down roping, and barrel racing), the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) is the oldest and largest rodeo-sanctioning body in the world.The rodeo lasts just over 2 hours. After the last bull is bucked, there is a brief intermission (20 minutes) followed by the entertainment. The concert lasts between 1-1 ½ hours.)
