American cowboy Showdown


Pairing rough and rowdy rodeo excitement with an electric LIVE country music arena show, the “American Cowboy Showdown Tour” is action-packed, edge-of-your-seat, dance-to-a-beat entertainment.


Embracing, and catering to, the blue-collar, AG, farming, ranching, and trucking communities, the American Cowboy Showdown is a rough stock series that canvases the country. 

Sanctioned by the International Professional Rodeo Association (IPRA), the events (Bareback • Saddle Bronc • Barrel Racing • Bull Riding) spotlight award-winning stock and showcase the talents of top-notch cowboys and cowgirls competing for top prize money and buckles as hopeful year-end championship finalists.

“My ambition is to grow the awareness and preservation of the agricultural and cowboy lifestyle. It’s a community of its own with lots of character and fits my brand of country music just right. Combining rodeo and country music makes for a natural fit and the American Cowboy Showdown Tour is BIG on fun-filled family, friends, and neighbors entertainment. So grab your best buds, or your best gal, for an unforgettable night on the town; this is a must-see ‘Kick Ag’ event.”

-- Kolt Barber(singer/songwriter/recording & national touring artist)

Your safety is our number one priority. It is important that we all remain vigilant in our efforts to reduce the risk of COVID-19 virus transmission. Rodeo is one of the first sports to reopen; by being sensitive to others and adhering to the recommended practices, we can demonstrate to local, state, and federal authorities that The American Cowboy Showdown and IPRA community are able to manage our sport in a safe and responsible manner. 

For your safety and comfort, The Kolt Barber American Cowboy Showdown Team is proactive; working closely with City and State Officials to assure COVID-19 mandates are satisfied as required including:


• Capacity Limits

• Temperature Assessments 

• Rapid Testing

• Face Coverings

• Social Distancing

We encourage families with children, and those over the age of 60, or suffering from disabilities, to arrive early and enter through the designated gate(s). We continue to exercise crowd control upon entry, seating, in concession lines, and restrooms. Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) and crews are on-site throughout the duration of the event.

When attending The American Cowboy Showdown, we ask all attending staff, crew, and guests to remember the three most important tools in combating the spread of the COVID-19 Virus. Public health authorities continue to promote social distancing, the use of face masks/face coverings, and washing hands frequently as some of the best practices. While seemingly inconvenient and uncomfortable at times, The American Cowboy Showdown and its team encourage these practices.  We’re in this together… so, together, let's celebrate our family-friendly, open-air event/sport in a fun, safe environment.  Here’s to good health!  Let’s Ride!
