Free Clint Black Concert in June
Written by wendycorr on April 2, 2019
It’s official – country music star Clint Black is coming to Cody this summer.
The announcement was made yesterday at the Stampede Board’s annual report to the Cody Chamber of Commerce. The country artist, who hit the charts in 1989 with his number one album “Killin’ Time,” has had more than 30 singles appear on the US Billboard country charts, twenty-two of which have reached number one.
Jed Burns, general manager for the Big Horn Radio Network, said the June 27th concert will be free to all attendees, thanks to a generous gift by the station’s owners, Larry and Susan Patrick.
The concert will be a kickoff to the Cody Stampede Rodeo’s 100th anniversary celebration. No seats will be reserved for the concert, although Burns says there will be seats set aside for handicapped individuals.
Rodeo ticket sales are up so far this year in anticipation of the centennial celebration, according to Taylor Bednarz, who has taken over as the office manager for the Stampede and Cody Night Rodeos. Bednarz reported that as of right now, pre-sold ticket sales are double what they were this time last year.
Stampede Board President Mike Darby told Cody Chamber members Monday that they are making plans in anticipation of a huge turnout for all the events scheduled for the 100th Anniversary celebration.
