American Western Weekend features four nights of action-packed entertainment, world-class talent, and western sports that culminates with the American Rodeo, an unrivaled celebration of the pioneering spirit of the American West. The national sporting event offers fans a choice: to cheer on Western sports’ finest, champion athletes, or root for the underdog “Contenders” chasing a $1 million bonus through every rodeo, roping, and riding effort. For the first time ever, a new competitive exhibition called the American Performance Horseman brings together the Western equine sports disciplines of reining, reined cow, and cutting for a $1 million prize. A half-time show during the final round features multiplatinum, award-winning artist Cody Johnson.
