Taos Muncy is an outstanding bronc rider, a three-time qualifier to the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo who won the world title in 2007, his first trip to play on ProRodeo’s biggest stage.
He was just 20 years old when he first wore that gold buckle. It takes dedication, athleticism and an extreme focus to continually battle for world titles.
And maybe that’s why he wasn’t the least bit awestruck when Clay Walker wished him well Saturday night in San Antonio. Of course, it could be because Muncy didn’t know Walker, even when Walker shook Muncy’s hand and offered greetings.
Extremely focused cowboys don’t have time to pay attention to all those other things, like pop culture and music, especially from artists who have been making music since 1993, the year Muncy turned 6 years old.
Or maybe Taos was just oblivious to the situation. That seems more realistic.
