It’s still early in the year, so if you haven’t decided how you’ll use your precious vacation days yet, we’ve got a really good suggestion — the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
You might be thinking cowboys, cowgirls bulls, broncs and barrel-racing, but you can add country music to that list. But not just any country music — the best that country has to offer!
Rodeo Houston has just announced their entertainment lineup at NRG Stadium for the nearly three-week long event. In addition to country’s best and brightest, superstars from the worlds of rock, pop, urban and ranchera are also featured in the nightly shows. Here’s the full lineup:
March 7 – Aaron Watson
March 8 – Old Dominion
March 9 – Chris Stapleton
March 10 – Alicia Keys
March 11 – Alan Jackson
March 12 – The Chainsmokers
March 13 – Sam Hunt
March 14 – Meghan Trainor
March 15 – Thomas Rhett
March 16 – Luke Bryan
March 17 – Fifth Harmony
March 18 – Willie Nelson
March 19 – Banda El Recodo and Siggno
March 20 – Florida Georgia Line
March 21 – ZZ Top
March 22 – Chris Young
March 23 – Blink 182
March 24 – Dierks Bentley
March 25 – Brad Paisley
March 26 – Zac Brown Band
Now, this is the first time for several of these stars to take the rotating stage in the middle of the stadium, but for others, like Alan Jackson, Brad Paisley and Chris Young, this is a repeat visit to the premier event. In fact, this will be Luke Bryan’s sixth time at the rodeo, and he’s such a fan, he dedicated an entire video to it.
Following the nightly ticketed shows in the arena, there are also free shows at The Hideout on the park grounds featuring favorite Texas acts like Mike and the Moonpies, Bri Bagwell, Josh Ward, Curtis Grimes and Flatland Cavalry.
Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is one of the largest rodeos in the United States. A great family friendly event that kicks off March 2 when the World’s Championship Barbecue competition begins, there is also a carnival, trail rides, food, shopping and activities just for the kids that take place every day. And HLSR is a charitable event, raising money for Texas youth.
Tickets for the shows go on sale Jan. 14. Who wants to meet us there? Don’t forget your boots!
