HOUSTON, TX — The rodeo shifts back to country for one night as the Zac Brown Band takes the stage Monday at NRG Stadium. Following Sunday’s Go Tejano Day with Calibre 50 and Tuesday’s Spanish pop with J Balvin and Wednesday with One Republic, Monday will be the only country show until Keith Urban plays Thursday, followed by Chris Stapleton, Brad Paisley and Garth Brooks to close out the rodeo this weekend.
The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo (HLSR) enters its third week after the annual barbecue cook-off and 13 can’t-miss concerts. The rodeo lineup reached its halfway mark Thursday night with Luke Bryan. Big music acts like Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Cody Johnson, Chris Young, Little Big Town, Blake Shelton, Leon Bridges, Kelsea Ballerini and Jason Aldean have already played.
Here’s a Zac Brown tune called “Toes.” We can’t guarantee Jimmy Buffett will be at NRG Stadium on Monday, but you’re pretty much guaranteed to hear this extraordinarily popular song:
