Bright is one of the new faces on Team MGM Grand, the Home of the Champions, along with fellow bareback rider Casey Colletti. Bright, a two-time Wrangler National Finals Rodeo qualifier, and Colletti, who made a name for himself at his first NFR this past December, join a brilliant crew of rodeo talent who make the MGM their home during ProRodeo’s championship event and other times throughout the rigorous season.
During the 2011 NFR, more than 30 cowboys and cowgirls were part of Team MGM, including world champions Trevor Brazile, Will Lowe, Bobby Mote, Jason Miller, Patrick Smith, Rich Skelton, Billy Etbauer, Tuf Cooper, Stran Smith, Cody Ohl, J.W. Harris, Wesley Silcox, Brittany Pozzi and Lindsay Sears.
What became most evident during the 2011 championship is that the MGM Grand is becoming the place to be during the NFR. I expect it to be the No. 1 destination for cowboys, cowgirls and fans that are part of the championship experience in 2012.
I’m quite proud to say that I got to see the action from a front-row seat, and I plan to be at the Gold Buckle Zone throughout the 10 days of this year’s finale. The MGM is an awesome host to the NFR, and rodeo is the greatest beneficiary.
Find me in early December. I’ll be at the MGM Grand.
