Tanya Tucker shared her music video for “When the Rodeo is Over (Where Does the Cowboy Go?),” dedicated to the late Larry Mahan, a professional rodeo cowboy who won six all-around world championships and two bull riding world championships. “When the Rodeo is Over (Where Does the Cowboy Go?)” is off Tanya’s new album, Sweet Western Sound.
The video for When the Rodeo is Over (Where Does the Cowboy Go?),” filmed at Y.O. Ranch in Mountain Home, TX, celebrates the lives and careers of rodeo legends and features several prominent figures including champion saddle rider, Bobby “Hooter” Brown—a member of both the Rodeo Hall of Fame and Texas Rodeo Cowboy Hall of Fame.
The video also features Craig Dillingham, who wrote the song alongside Billy Don Burns. Tanya shared of the song:“I was in LA, the night before the first session started. Brandi sent me a song, saying ‘If you like it, we’ll start with it. I gave it to Craig [Dillingham, Tanya’s boyfriend] to listen to. He comes back in a minute, and I asked him, ‘Did you like it?’ and he says, ‘Like it? Hell, I wrote it!’ He’d never pitched it to me, but Brandi did. It’s one of those songs that just stays with you.”
