Barbecue won't be the only competition at RodeoHouston. There'll be another competition for the connoisseurs amongst you.

Here's a link. Check this out. Houston Livestock Show And Rodeo™ - Vintners Corral (http://www.rodeohouston.com/ag/ws/ws_index.aspx - broken link)

^^I love the BBQ competition. That's another good thing about the Rodeo. There is always great food.

And what the hell is a tejano performer? Sounds Mexican to me. They have their Mexican day, let us have our Cowboy day. Rap will only bring on thugs wearing pants the size of a tent which they can conceal 13 semi automatic weapons inside with their T-shirts the length of a wedding dress.

This whole thing reminds me of something. I just this week asked my brother if he was going to the NY Sportsman show. It is the largest show soley for fisherman, hunters and so on in the world. He told me for the first time since he was a little kid he ain't going. He said they have more and more booths selling things having nothing to do with fishing and hunting. CD booths, work cloths booths, junk jewlery booths, construction sales booths and so on. He said last year it looked more like a fle market.

And guess what? Attendance is down this year. Sounds like the same thing is going to happen to our Rodeo. I was planning on staying at the Lakeside RV park again a mile or so from Reliant for a week and go every day to the rodeo. We changed our mind after seeing this lineup. We will go one day to see Reba and thats it.

Dont get me wrong, there are some good performers in that lineup, I just dont like where the the future of this is going adding non country music. I see Rodeos as a country thing and I want to see country music. If I want to hear rap I will go to the getto.
Wow. You need to branch out a bit. They're not having rap this year, but you're extremely close minded. What a bad post. And there should be a obvious answer to you as to why attendance will probably be down this year.

Okay, guys, the rodeo is not just about concerts. They have other things, too. If you plan to go at different times, what exhibits are you folks planning on checking out?

I'd go to the rodeo if they added a punk band.

The food exhibit .

My artwork made it into the Rodeo back in 2004. We had a contest at school. I drew a boot with cactus in the background. It was nice and I was in the 7th grade.

Desertsun41-
Just want to let you know that Tejano (Texan) is different from a present day Mexican. Many Tejanos have been here for generations and this type of music is truly unique to our region. You will not find Spanish Tejano music outside of Texas. True Tejano music is like Spanish country and most that enjoy this type of music like western wear as well. Just because it is in Spanish does not make it right to exclude it. There's a lot of history behind it that you would not even be interested in hearing, as obvious from your post.

And please try not to judge others for not being like you.
Enjoy your days at the rodeo. Hope, for your sake, there is no diversity at all, so you can have a splendid time.

Well I kinda have an issue with Ramon Ayala at the rodeo. I know he is considered a legend and what not but it is not tejano music. Oh well I guess I shouldnt be complaining since I will be stuck taking my fiance and sisters to go see the Jonas brothers. Someone shoot me now.

ssgmun5000- Funny you bring this up. In this same manner that desertsun41 feels that anything non-country takes away form the rodeo...is how many Tejanos feel about the performers in the Go Tejano lineup. I guess for many years they've been going with these Mexican norteno types, which are not related to true Tejano music. This will surely cause Tejano music to die out. Tejano was very popular in the Hispanic (of Mexican descent) community when I grew up here in the 80's and 90's. And when I left TX after high school, to my first duty station in San Diego, CA I searched and searched for Tejano music on the dial. I was surprised to find out there was no such music to be heard there (How could that be? Texas was the center of the universe!). There were a few Tejanos out there that banded together to try and get enough people together to have a Tejano performer out there once in a while. Now that I'm back in Texas, I think I attempted to listen to Tejano once more, but there's nothing new that catches my attention. Anyway....back to the rodeo....
P.S. I enjoy the Jonas brothers, thanks to my daughter!
