In case you aren’t old enough, or rodeo enough to remember Lane Frost was a professional bull rider and Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) member, who died in the arena at the 1989 Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo as a result of injuries sustained riding the bull “Takin’ Care of Business”.
I am from Arizona, where Lane and Tuff Hedeman were a really big deal, as well as Rodeo in general. We even Rodeo Vacation in February to do the Rodeo Parade and participate in the Tucson Rodeo. I was young when Lane was killed but we all hurt we heard about it. This song “July in Cheyenne” from Aaron Watson is an incredible tribute to Lane’s memory.
Have a listen below.
