From bull riding to steer wrestling, the excitement of live rodeo action returns to Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College on April 6-7 when the ABAC Alumni Association presents its annual “Gee Haw Whoa Back” rodeo as a part of the 2018 Homecoming Weekend.

As a special treat at no extra charge following the rodeo on April 6, recording artist Jason Michael Carroll will take the spotlight at approximately 9:30 p.m. to perform some of country’s hottest music.

Spectators will be entertained with riveting competition during the Professional Cowboy Association-sanctioned rodeo at the ABAC Arena which begins at 7 p.m. each night. Gates open at 6 p.m.

Tickets are $12 for general admission and $5 for children 12 and under.  Rodeo tickets will be sold in advance and at the gate on the two days of the event. Separate tickets must be purchased for each night.  The rodeo ticket on April 6 also includes the concert.

Cowboys will participate in events including bull riding, saddle bronc riding, bareback riding, team roping, calf roping, and steer wrestling.  Cowgirls will compete in break-away roping and barrel racing.  The ABAC Homecoming Court will be introduced at the rodeo on April 6, and Stallion Cup club winners will be announced at the rodeo on April 7.   

Carroll debuted at number one on the country chart in 2006 with his album “Waitin’ in the Country.”  The album featured Top 10 hits including “Alyssa Lies” and “Livin’ Our Love Song.”

Carroll has toured with other country artists including Carrie Underwood and Alan Jackson.  He has released four full-length studio albums, including “What Color is Your Sky” in 2015.
