CODY CANADA AND THE DEPARTED!
If you don’t know the name Cody Canada, maybe you have heard of his former band Cross Canadian Ragweed! Cody was the lead singer and songwriter for CCR from 1998 until the band parted ways in 2010. They were more than just an Oklahoma Red Dirt band; they achieved national and international attention, selling over 1 million albums!
CCR released 10 albums during their 12-year stint as the Red Dirt band in Oklahoma. Cody Canada has worked with acts that include country superstars Lee Ann Womack, Dierks Bentley and fellow Red Dirt standout Stoney LaRue. (Did I mention that concerts are included in the ticket price?)
Cody Canada and The Departed will play after the rodeo events on Sunday, May 29th, at 9:30PM. They will take the stage after the last gate closes. Fans will be allowed into the arena (so wear your boots) for an up close and personal show from an Oklahoma Red Dirt legend.
Live music from local band Bryce Dicus & The Mercenaries will kick off the music festivities before the rodeo events.
Discounted pre-sale rodeo tickets will be available online starting April 1st. Cost is $15 for adults and $7 for children ages 3-12. Tickets are $20 at the gate. And of course… concerts are included in the ticket price!
