Clown & Barrelman

JJ Harrison is our rodeo clown and barrelman for 2018. Go here for a preview of JJ in action. 

JJ Harrison is many things--a former middle school teacher, an activist, an athlete, a WSU alum. And a clown. A rodeo clown, to be exact. With a master's degree under his belt and a contagious personality like none other, Harrison feels he's at his best when his face is painted and his boots are in the dirt. "I guess it comes down to the fact that I'm too lazy to work and to scared to steal," he joked during an interview with Classic Country KXA.  Go here for the full story.

Specialty Act

John Payne--aka The One Arm Bandit--is our specialty act. His act has been voted the PRCA "Specialty Act of the Year" twelve times. Go here to read his amazing story, and to learn how he lost his arm.
