ORCHARD, Texas, March 19, 2014 – On Saturday, April 5, 2014, penny loafers will be traded in for cowboy boots, khakis will be replaced by blue jeans and everyone will be touched by a little bit of country, as America gears up for…National Bucking Bull Day! This unprecedented national event is being unveiled to sports enthusiasts, country music fans, thrill seekers and even “city slickers” – proving that bucking bulls are not just for cowboys anymore.
Exclusive Genetics (EG), a world leader in the bucking bull industry, will host a competition in honor of the inauguration of National Bucking Bull Day (NBBD). EG CEO Billy Jaynes says, “Now is the time to be involved in this great American Heritage of bucking bulls.” He emphasized, “Anyone can be a part of this phenomenon, you just need one thing…a passion for the sport.” The NBBD Finals will take place on Saturday, April 5 at 2:00pm (PDT) at the ACM Party for a Cause® Festival in Las Vegas, Nevada. Showcasing some of the finest animal athletes in the country, the bucking bull competition will feature the 5 winning bulls who came out on top at the recent NBBD Preliminaries.
The 2nd Annual ACM Party for a Cause® Festival is a two-day outdoor music festival headlined by Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban on Friday, April 4 and Saturday, April 5, respectively. The festival will be the first-ever special event held at The LINQ, Caesars Entertainment’s new open-air shopping, dining and entertainment district at the heart of the famous Las Vegas Strip, and will feature multiple stages for ongoing LIVE country music performances, interactive games, a country marketplace, and more to be announced. The event is part of The Week Vegas Goes Country® leading up to the 49th Academy of Country Music Awards on Sunday, April 6, 2014 at 8:00 PM live ET/delayed PT on the CBS Television Network.
Proceeds from National Bucking Bull Day will be donated to two commendable charities – the Academy of Music’s charitable arm, ACM Lifting Lives®, dedicated to improving lives through the power of music, and the National Autism Association, providing help and hope to those affected. To engage the fans and to raise even more awareness of these organizations, two of the top bulls in the NBBD Finals will represent each charity by being given the namesakes, “Lifting Lives®” and “Buck Autism.”
