Jody spent his last 30 years in Big Spring, TX, and rodeo has been a part of his life since the beginning. He and his brother competed in all the events in junior rodeo and high school rodeo. Being a contestant wasn’t Jody’s only connection to rodeo. He and his brother used to play rodeo at their house and Jody would always be the announcer. In 2003, he focused on his passion and set out to obtain his PRCA Announcer card and pursue announcing as a full-time profession. Jody has been selected three times by the PRCA to announce the National Finals Steer Roping and two times as the Ram National Circuit Finals Announcer. He has also announced hundreds of other great rodeos across the United States and Canada.
PRCA Stock Contractor
In an attempt to keep a long family rodeo tradition alive, The Honeycutt Rodeo Company was birthed by Roy and Virginia Honeycutt in 1976. Since its creation, Honeycutt Rodeo Stock contractors have been one of the few rodeo stock contractors to have been a part of every National Finals Rodeo. Owning over 200 horses and 40 bulls with some of the best bloodlines, today the Honeycutt Rodeo Company is still being ran with the help of son, Jerry Honeycutt, “Heritage and Tradition have and always will be very important to me and my family. I look forward to carrying on the tradition of producing top notch rodeos.” In 2010, Honeycutt rodeo was proud to receive the Family Heritage Award from the WPRA. No Award could better sum it up. This is a company that has great traditions and knows how to put on a rodeo!
Providing the entertainment this year is rodeo clown Ronald Burton. Burton, a native of Philadelphia, MS, has been entertaining rodeo fans for over 15 years. His comedy acts, clean humor, and off the wall antics have earned him several awards including nine times being selected as the Cowboy’s Professional Rodeo Association’s ‘Contract Act of the Year’. Ronald is also the subject of the award-winning documentary ‘Man in the Can’. “Rodeo fans are the greatest fans in the whole world”, says Burton, “and that’s why I take great pride in putting on a show that the whole family will enjoy”.
