Reliving America's frontier days has been a trying task ever since Hollywood Westerns fell out of vogue and your 10-gallon hat was ruined by that 10-gallon guacamole recipe. Go west with this GrouponLive deal to see an extreme bull-riding and barrel-racing event presented by the Southern Extreme Bull Riding Association, followed by a concert from country-music star Easton Corbin, at Cincinnati Gardens. For $30, you get two tickets for general-admission seating on Saturday, January 19, at 7:30 p.m. (up to a $61.86 value, including all fees). Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
On January 19, the Southern Extreme Bull Riding Association bucks its way into Cincinnati Gardens during an evening of intense rodeo competition and rollicking country tunes. Headlining the night's festivities, cowboys test their fate atop ferocious, 1,800-pound bulls, attempting to last for eight seconds and climb the Southern Extreme Bull Riding Association standings. Afterward, the region's top cowgirls enter the action for rounds of barrel racing, jetting around the arena faster than tractors spooked by their own exhaust.
When the dust finally settles and the final flattened cowboy hat has been peeled from the bulls' hooves, country-music star Easton Corbin takes the stage. Winner of the 2010 American Country Award for Breakthrough Artist of the Year, Corbin sends feet a-tappin' with such hits as "Lovin' You is Fun," "A Little More Country Than That," and "Roll With It."
