Following Performance in the FanZone for The American Semi-Finals at the Historic Fort Worth Stockyards
On Sunday, February 19, Nashville recording artist and former professional bull rider Austin Wahlert performed at RFD-TV’s The American presented by Polaris Ranger at the legendary AT&T Stadium, following in the footsteps of country music superstars such as Justin Moore, Jewel, and William Michael Morgan.
The Colorado-native and Rocky Mountain CMA Songwriter of the Year performed his single “Thin Blue Line,” a song that was written in memory of those lost in the Dallas police shooting, to honor first responders and military at the event. His performance was preceded by a one-hour concert on Friday, February 17 in the FanZone for The American Semi-Finals at the historic Fort Worth Stockyards.
Wahlert, who also performed at the 10th Round at the Wrangler’s National Finals Rodeo in 2014 and the Mandalay Bay Stage in December of 2016, has had great success in both America and Europe, where his song “Long Live Cowboys” hit #7 on the international chart and broke the top 100 on the pop chart. His latest album I WILL WIN has been described by Real American Cowboy Magazine as a “ballsy album with songs that challenge your realities and make you swell inside, some even make you re-commit to things that you’ve left behind.” The album can be purchased here.
