Houston Rodeo releases 2019 entertainment lineup

By Jonathan Martinez - Anchor/Reporter

After days of speculation and just as much anticipation, the 2019 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo performance lineup was finally revealed.

"I think this lineup comes as close to having something for everyone as any we've ever had," Joel Cowley, president and CEO of HLSR, said.

A wide range of talent from all genres of music is featured on the list of the announced acts.

The lineup includes everyone from the king of country music, George Strait, to one of the hottest music artists on the scene right now, Cardi B.

It even includes the duo of Brooks and Dunn, Panic at the Disco and many more.

"I think it's a great lineup, pretty diverse this year," rodeo fan Tad Leblanc said.

Cirila Puig, another rodeo fan, said: "It's awesome. You don't get the opportunity all the time to see these artists."

If the lineup looks familiar, that's because a leaked list from last week that made the rounds on social media turned out to be legitimate.

"The reveal actually ended up being a confirmation, because the leak was real, and I will tell you it caught us by surprise," Cowley said.

As for the source of the leak, rodeo officials only said it was an outside agency they work with and it wasn't done maliciously. They vowed it won't happen again.

"It was not something that was intentionally done. It was not done from within our office, but leak or no leak, we are so excited about the 2019 linup," Cowley said.

So are many fans who can't wait to catch their favorite artists in person on the revolving stage.

"George Strait, Tim McGraw, Brooks and Dunn ... Oh my gosh, the list goes on and on. They're all amazing. All of them," Puig said.
