ALAMOSA -- Round- UP recently decided to move forward with their annual rodeo at the Alamosa Fairgrounds. Chancey Williams and the “Younger Brothers Band“ will be performing after the Rodeo at the 2020 Alamosa Round-UP, August 29, 2020.
Chancey’s 250 Tour came about after so many concerts were canceled and severely limited due to COVID. Named the “Chancey Williams 250 Tour” because that’s the crowd size that most venues are now limited to. When Toby Keith’s “Country Comes to Town” tour was post-poned earlier this year, Chancey and crew decided to pull up their boots and get to work.
They were willing to do whatever needed to be done to get back out to their fans. “We plan to go to many of the small towns that gave us our start. It’s time for some fun. We want to see some smiles out there and I hope everyone comes out to one of these shows.” Says Chancey “We want to play,” said Williams, “and we believe our friends and fans want to see us back out there. But we also know it has to happen in a responsible way.”
From the Bronc Saddle to the stage, Chancey Williams has been developing a rapidly growing fan base. Following in the footsteps of another legendary cowboy singer-song- writer, Chris LeDoux, Williams has competed and performed at some of the largest rodeos around the country including ‘The Daddy of them All” in Cheyenne, WY.
People ask him all the time, which was more of a rush? Riding Bucking horses at Cheyenne? Or Performing on the Big Stage? Chancey’s response “It’s kind of the same, you know. I love riding bucking horses and especially riding at Cheyenne, and it was also one of the coolest moments of my life stepping out on the main stage opening for Merle Haggard.”
Last fall, Williams signed with major booking agent WME Nashville, the home of blockbuster country artists such as Garth Brooks, Eric Church and Brad Paisley. And before COVID-19, he and his bandmates were elated to spend a portion of his summer on the road opening for a certain Mr. Toby Keith on his “Country Comes to Town” tour.
These days former Saddle Bronc Rider Chancey Williams is spending more and more time at his Wyoming Ranch, riding the pastures, checkin cows and writing songs. This June, his new album 3rd Street, debuted at #5 on iTunes Country Albums Chart upon its release. With hit songs- the “World needs more Cowboys” and “Tonight We're Drinking."
Chancey is a cowboy from a small town. His music is a mix of Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley and Chris LeDoux. This year’s crowds may be limited, but the music will not!! Opening for Chancey Williams is Chris Roberts. Gates Open at 7:00pm, Chris Roberts will play at 8:15pm and Chancey and the Younger Brothers Band will take the stage about 9:00pm (after the rodeo).
Only 350 tickets will be sold for this event, 175 per section in compliance with the current state guidelines. Masks and Social distancing are recommended.
Summer is winding up, and we want to have a little fun, and experience just a little “Normal” before Fall hits. Come join us under the stars next to The Rec Center for a night of Rodeo and Music.
Tickets will only be sold online this year, so that ticketing can remain “Contactless.” Tickets are going fast, don’t miss out. Check out: www.alamosaroundup. com for all the details.
