GUYMON, Okla. – There are a lot of adjectives to describe Cord McCoy: former bull rider, television show host, livestock contractor and reality TV star.
They’re all mixed into a giant bag of cowboy. This weekend McCoy will be in the Oklahoma Panhandle for the Kasey Hayes & Stormy Wing Invitational PBR Touring Pro event, set for 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 26, at Henry C. Hitch Pioneer Arena in Guymon.
McCoy will be one of the stock contractors at the event, providing bucking bulls to match the power of some of the Professional Bull Riders brightest rising stars. He also will be making appearances Saturday in Guymon.
From 10 a.m.-noon, McCoy will be part of an autograph session at Carter’s Market Place, where he also will announce the winner of the “Name the Bull” contest.
Starting at 2:30 p.m., he will be at Bob’s Cowboy Bar and Rodeo Room signing autographs and meeting with fans. A booth will be set up at the arena before the event begins for autographs from McCoy, Hayes, Wing and other PBR stars.
McCoy, a ranch-raised cowboy from the tiny southeastern Oklahoma town of Tupelo, is a five-time International Professional Rodeo Association champion who qualified in bull riding for the National Finals Rodeo in 2005. In the years since, he has qualified numerous times to the PBR World Finals.
He is the host of “The Ride with Cord McCoy,” which airs on RFD-TV. Most notably, he and his brother, Jet, have appeared an unprecedented three times on the CBS-TV reality series “The Amazing Race,” most recently during the spring 2014 season. The McCoys have been fan favorites on the show since their first appearance in 2010. In fact, they were named Best Dynamic Duo for the 2014 CBS Fan Awards.
In addition to witnessing the true spectacle that is the PBR and seeing the association’s big names, this is a great opportunity for fans to meet one of the most well-known cowboys today.
