When it comes to rodeo knowledge, it’s safe to say professional rodeo announcer, Matt West, is full of it.  

Having announced for the Professional Bull Riders (PBR), Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (WNFR), and RFD-TV’s THE AMERICAN, West has witnessed the absolute best of the best compete at the most prestigious rodeo competitions for years. So, we’re confident that his opinion is credible.

“THE AMERICAN is insane,” West said as he shook his head. “It’s a once in a lifetime experience, and as cliché as that sounds, it is like nothing else to have the sport of rodeo in front of that many fans at a venue like AT&T Stadium.”

Along with the spectacular fan experience, West called attention to the life changing aspects of the event. Who remembers the Texas Aggie that blazed through AT&T Stadium on a shiny Palamino mare with white braids as long as the reins?

“It’s given an opportunity for somebody that might not be a household name, somebody that’s in college, struggling through paying their tuition, and the books, and college rodeoing, to come in and have an opportunity at getting a piece of that million dollars,” West said, referring to Hailey Kinsel, who left AT&T Stadium with a check for $433,333 last February.
