Rodeo Austin Announces Music Lineup

Ludacris, Dwight Yoakam & Gladys Knight have been roped in

If you’ve never been to Rodeo Austin then you need to fix that, pronto. It’s a great night out with your significant other and of course the kids love the mutton bustin’, steer wrestling, and bareback riding. This year’s music lineup, like previous iterations, only adds to the fun.
