Wild West Frogfest and Rodeo 2014 Presented by White’s Farm Supply
The Wild West FrogFest & Rodeo presented by White’s Farm Supply returns. We’ll be back at the Herkimer County Fairgrounds June 14th to celebrate our 26th anniversary. The Painted Pony Rodeo also returns this year. Gates open at 10:30am with the Rodeo starting at 1pm. Entertainment gets underway at 3pm.
ACM and CMA Duo of the Year, Thompson Square headlines Wild West FrogFest & Rodeo at the Herkimer County Fairgrounds June 14th.
Being named Duo of the Year is quite an honor for Keifer and Shawna Thompson. ‘The first time was extremely special. My gosh to win it a second time. We were both dumbfounded. My heart was beating out of my chest. I’m surprised the camera couldn’t see it.’
Farr is excited to travel north this summer to entertain fans he didn’t realize he had. ‘When you think of New York, I never thought anyone knew who I was there. I played there a few times and got great reactions from fans, so I’m looking forward to be playing there again for them.’
Who’s ready to ‘Rock the Beer Gut?’ Trailer Choir returns to the Wild West FrogFest & Rodeo. Vinny and Butter are pumped about it. ‘We’re so excited. One of the best memories we’ve ever had twice. We love coming up there and hanging out with you all.’
A lot has happened since Trailer Choir has been at FrogFest. Butter started a family and Vinny lost a TON of weight on the Biggest Loser, a change that has rubbed off on Butter. ‘When Vinny got back off the Biggest Loser, I hadn’t seen him in 6 or 7 months. I saw a gleam and happiness in him. He’s always had that big smile and personality but it’s like being a new person with a guy you’ve spent the last 6 years of your life with. It was pretty awesome. He’s influencing me and I’m in much better shape. Having a baby and having to reorganize your life has helped too.’
James Wesley returns to thank Central New York farmers and open Wild West FrogFest & Rodeo.
Wesley does more than sing about thanking farmers. He understands what they go through and wants to show his appreciation. ‘It’s a lot of work. People don’t realize what the farmers, their wives and their families really go through. It’s good to come out, show some support and thank those farmers.’
