“Hey, Cheyenne, Garth Brooks here, proud to say I can’t wait to see you for 125th,” Brooks said in a video message. “I carry my 100 buckle everywhere I go. If you’ve seen us, you’ve seen me wear it – awards, album covers, there’s still this thing.”
Held the last full week of July, Cheyenne Frontier Days is a huge, 10-day western holiday. The event has been held since 1897 so that the Cheyenne can celebrate their roots in the Old West.
In addition to the world-class entertainment Frontier Nights, the event offers the largest outdoor rodeo in the world – which attracts the best professionals who compete for over $ 1 million prize. The Frontier Days belt buckle is one of the most coveted prizes in the rodeo.
This summer, a bronze statue of Chris Ledu should be added to the collection of sculptures in Frontier Park. The sculpture by D. Michael Thomas of Buffalo, Wyoming, remembers Chris Ledu’s connections to rodeo, music, and CFD history.
“One of my favorite memories is the fact that I have to play with Chris Ledu, the man,” Brooks said. “So I can’t thank you for all the gifts you gave me. I’m looking forward to the 125th. I’m looking forward to the fact that it’s dedicated to Chris. I can’t wait to unveil the statue.”
“I’m going to need a buckle belt to go with my 100, so 125, right up to 100. Thank you for remembering me,” Brooks said. “Thank you for giving me some of the greatest moments in my life that are coming. I love you guys. Cowboy.”
Cheyenne Frontier Days: Dad of them all
In 2020, the CFD was abolished for the first time in its 124-year history. Cheyenne Mayor Marian Orr said organizers had decided the risk of spreading the virus was too high for more than 140,000 people visiting Cheyenne for the Border Days.
The days of borders continued during both the world wars and the Great Depression, when difficult finances prompted it to become a predominantly volunteer festival of rodeos, music concerts, parades and other events.
