Aside from Chris LeDoux, only one other artist has ever competed in the rodeo and performed at Cheyenne Frontier Days, one of the nation's premiere country music events. That man is Chancey Williams, a rising singer and former rodeo rider from Wyoming.
Growing up on ranch, Williams has lived and breathed the Western lifestyle. Before throwing his hat into the country music ring, he worked as a saddle bronc rider -- a job that only draws a special breed.
As a musician, his cowboy upbringing and authentic Western life experiences have shaped his music. In recent years, he's been on the road with his band The Younger Brothers. They've opened for several notable acts including Aaron Watson and Chris LeDoux. Like LeDoux's music, theirs is a little country and a little rock-and-roll.
On Friday (May 19) Williams and The Younger Brothers release their new album, Rodeo Cold Beer. Today, we're giving Wide Open Country readers an exclusive first listen to "Tin Roof." Williams co-wrote the song with fellow country artist Trent Willmon.
