The 2018 Bulls, Bands and Barrels (BBB) tour makes its way to Gonzales for the fourth stop of this year’s much anticipated tour. Country music legend, Clay Walker, will close this unique rodeo style event which is slated for 7 p.m. on Saturday, May 19 at the Lamar Dixon Expo Center.

The event format is as follows: 20-30 of the best bull riders will face off with foes nearly 10 times their weight in sinewy brawn during the most thrilling 8 seconds in sports where only one athlete will be left standing. If a rider stays on his bull for the required 8 seconds, he gets a score and a chance to compete in the championship round. If he gets bucked off, he is finished. The cowgirls will take the dirt following the bull riding to see which of them can get the fastest time as they race around barrels in a figure 8 pattern.

Following the competition, Walker, boasting 4 platinum albums, 18 top ten hits and 6 #1 singles, will thrill fans with an exciting performance, the likes of which has made him the country superstar he is. Opening for Walker will be the dulcet tones of Parish County Line, featuring unique Louisiana sound like none other.
