Hip Hop Cowboys Spring Rodeo at Mesquite Arena
Shannon Sutlief Recommends
Rodeo and line dancing may be an expected matchup, but these rodeo fans won’t be boot-scootin’ to “Achy Breaky Heart.” Instead they’ll be doing the “Cupid Shuffle” when Cupid, the singer of the popular hip-hop line dance song, takes the stage. Houston rapper Lil’ Keke and blues singer Jaye Hammer will also perform, and DJs will spin hit tunes, including but not limited to hip-hop, while cowboys and cowgirls from across the region compete in bull riding, team roping, ladies’ barrel racing, tie-down roping, steer wrestling and relay races. As if that’s not enough: Watch little buckaroos participate in mutton bustin’ (kids riding lambs like bull riders).
