2016 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo

2016 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo


This year the 2016 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo was all about opportunity and networking. Before the 2016 WNFR even started opportunities started knocking left and right. I took each of those opportunities that came my way with open arms and a positive outlook. I went into the WNFR in Vegas with goals and people I wanted to meet / network with. I came out of the experience with more than I could ever imagine.


All these opportunities that came my way started two weeks before the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Viva Las Vegas!! The first opportunity was a phone call from the producer of SnapChat. That lead to a SnapChat series in Las Vegas of the WNFR. Which I hope you all enjoyed as much as I had fun being a part of it.

Stay tuned for more snapchat series down the rodeo trail in the summer of 2017!! Not to mention, I'll also be covering one of the WORLDS biggest EDM festivals in the states called " Electric Daisy Carnival " in Viva Las Vegas June of 2017!! I can't wait!!! For more opportunities that I captured in the month of Dec. be sure to follow me on Twitter @23RockRollShine ( Yes, that's my personal. But I wear many different hats)


With that being said, this years WNFR was one for the books! Personally, it was probably one of the BEST WNFR'S I witnessed in person. The rookies and Canada took over and they were DEFINITELY shining bright. Take a look at the list of World Champion's that left Las Vegas shining a little brighter..

With tons of requests I have brought back the music Monday TOP 10 " Rodeo Tunes " series. Every Monday I play the TOP 10 most requested songs that you guy's send in and play them on snapchat for 10 seconds. Remember, if you can't make the series on Monday you have 24 hours to watch it until it disappears forever. Crazy!


I'm getting ready to release a brand new series on RodeoChat as well as some new hashtags that I have created recently in the rodeo industry. I will be announcing those in a couple of day's. In the mean time, be sure to follow RodeoChat on Instagram so you don't miss out on a beat!!

New years I will be spending it in Wyoming covering two rodeos one is in Rock Springs, and the other is in Gillette! Nothing like starting the year off with a bang at a rodeo. Right?! Haha :)
