Dwight-YoakamCountry music stars, Dwight Yoakam, Alan Jackson and Toby Keith, together with American rock bands, Journey and Styx are some of the exciting, all-star guest performers headlining this year’s Cheyenne Frontier Days, the oldest outdoor rodeo in the world.

Hosted in Cheyenne, Wyoming’s historic capital, Cheyenne Frontier Days will take place from July 20 – 28, 2013 with the rodeos commencing at 12.15 pm daily.

Showcasing daily Professional Rodeo Cowboy Association (PRCA), Cheyenne Frontier Days will feature a series of Wild West extravaganzas, foot-stomping concerts, cookouts, pancake breakfasts and plenty of bronco-busting action and entertainment throughout the nine day event.

Adding to the rodeo fervour is the 2013 Championship Bull Riding (CBR) World Championships to be held on July 22-23. Considered the most hazardous “eight-second” sport, there will be 17 Champion Bull Teams competing for the cash prize of US $250,000 on the 2013 “Road to Cheyenne” tour. CFD

There is also plenty of action for the public to view behind the scenes.

Others can travel back in time to the Old West and celebrate Cheyenne’s western heritage at Wild Horse Gulch.

In the evenings, visitors can enjoy a variety of entertainment including the finest country music performances.

Few entertainers have attained the iconic status of  Grammy Award-winner, Dwight Yoakam, who will be supported by the Younger Brothers Band and Chancey Williams. Other premier venues will be headlined by Alan Jackson with guest singer, Randy Houser, Toby Keith with guest singer, Joe Nichols and Jason Aldean with Jake Owen – to name a few.
