HOMETOWN THROWDOWN TRIPLE T 25th ANNIVERSARY BULL RIDING COMING TO FREEDOM HALL

The 25th Anniversary Hometown Throwdown is set to take place August 13 & 14 at Freedom Hall in Johnson City. Sanctioned by the Bull Riders & Outlaws Association, this special bull riding event is presented by the Triple T Bucking Bulls, a local stock contractor from East Tennessee that has supplied bulls at rodeos for the last 25 years. Triple T promotes bull riding, beginning at early ages, with their Mini Bulls series. Their goal is to teach children the sport of bull riding by demonstrating the proper techniques to safely build their bull riding careers. Brothers, Brian and Matthew Turnmire are focused on providing family fun and quality entertainment throughout the southeast states.

During this event, top cowboys from around the region will be battling it out for over $8,000 in prize money. Locally, this will be the biggest bull riding event of the year. In addition to bull riding, entertainment during the rodeo will be provided by Dave “Showtime” Meyer. Meyer is a Comedy Act Showcase Champion who began his journey with rodeos in Annville, Pennsylvania. Meyer’s hilarious characters include Jacob the Amish man and the Horse Screamer, who comedically mocks barrel racers.

The night is full of entertainment, each night beginning with a pre-rodeo concert. Friday, August 13, Morgan’s Mill will provide entertainment. The band members met at East Tennessee State University while studying Bluegrass, Old Time, and Country music. Morgan’s Mill released their second EP, “Wyoming”, continuing to gain popularity and recognition in the country-music industry.

On Saturday, August 14th, Nick Jamerson and Kris Bentley, better known as Sundy Best, will be performing. The Kentucky native’s music is a blend of Country, Appalachian Folk, Bluegrass, Rock, Soul, and R&B. Their latest album, “Bring Up the Sun”, reached number 11 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. Concerts begin each night at 6:45 P.M.

Presented by Wiseman’s Clothing & Shoes, each night will be a guaranteed source of entertainment for families of all ages. Bull riding begins at 8:00 P.M. each night, and on Friday night, children will receive free bandanas.

Reserved seat tickets are $35.00 for adults and children.  General admission tickets are $25.00 for adults, $17.50 for children ages 6-12 years old and free for children 5 & under.
