Garth Brooks and Blake Shelton are among the headliners for this year’s Cheyenne Frontier Days’ night shows.
The entire headlining lineup was announced Thursday evening, just one day after CFD officials announced the “Daddy of ‘Em All” would be returning this summer at full capacity with no mask mandate for attendees.
The night show concert series will consist of:
- July 23: Garth Brooks with Ned LeDoux
- July 24: Thomas Rhett with Rhett Akins, the singer’s father
- July 25: Cody Johnson with Aaron Watson
- July 28: Maren Morris with an opening act to be announced
- July 29: Eric Church with Ashley McBryde
- July 30: Kane Brown with Restless Road
- July 31: Blake Shelton with John King
“We are so glad to be sharing this lineup for 2021 tonight,” said Randy Krafft, chairman of the rodeo’s Contract Acts Committee. “It has been a long year for all of us and we can’t wait to welcome our fans back to Frontier Park.”
Shelton, Church and Rhett were all rescheduled from the 2020 rodeo, since CFD was ultimately canceled last summer due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This year’s 125th celebration is dedicated to the memory of late country singer and former rodeo cowboy Chris LeDoux. A bronze statue of LeDoux will be added to the sculpture collection at Frontier Park.
Additionally, there will be nine days of professional rodeo, culminating in the championship on July 31.
The event will also feature hundreds of vendors, a full carnival, artists, food and music to celebrate the history and culture of the American West.
Tickets will go on sale at 9 a.m. on April 15 and can be purchased at www.cfdrodeo.com or by calling 307-778-7222. The ticket office won’t be open for in-person sales at this time.
