Sixty truckloads carrying three million pounds of dirt will be transported this Friday (1/9) to the same arena floor where the biggest entertainers in the world perform and the OSU Men’s and Women’s Basketball and Hockey teams play their exciting games at the Schottenstein Center. Why all the dirt?
It’s all for the first-ever rodeo at the Schottenstein Center this Saturday (1/10) at 7:30 p.m.. It’s also only the second time in the venue’s 17 year history that dirt has filled the arena floor for an event. “The World’s Toughest Rodeo” will feature 30 professional cowboys showcasing their expertise in bareback riding, saddle bronc riding and bull riding.
A barrel-racing event will feature the top Cowgirls in the world as they show their speed and style in a competition that will conclude with a head-to-head competition to determine the night’s champion.
Comedy and specialty acts will also be featured, but I won’t spoil the fun by detailing the humorous and entertaining additions to this great event.
And to top off the already fantastic evening will be country star Dustin Lynch, whose new single “Where It’s At” is a current hit and his smash “Cowboys and Angels” was one of the 2012’s most-played songs on country radio. Lynch will perform in concert following the rodeo.
“Cowboys and Angels” became a rare platinum single, which means sales exceeded one million, and it helped push his major label debut album to the number one spot on the country album charts. His follow-up hit #2.
Check out the song that helped Dustin Lynch become one of the hottest and most exciting stars in country music with his video for “Cowboys and Angels.”
“The World’s Toughest Rodeo 2015” featuring musical guest country star Dustin Lynch in a post-rodeo concert, takes place Saturday, January 10 at the Jerome Schottenstein Center. For more information visit the website: http://www.schottensteincenter.com
