Wrangle a good old time at the rodeo

With football season coming to an end, Texans are kicking off another: rodeo season. The stakes are high and the entertainment is hot for this year's displays of Western heritage across the Lone Star state.

For a dash of history, head to Fort Worth for America's oldest stock show, starting today through Feb. 8. Pick up a new belt buckle or a pair of boots in between the livestock shows. Info: fwstockshowrodeo.com.

If your inner cowboy or cowgirl craves star-studded performances along with your barbecue, you'll hit the rodeo jackpot at the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo, Jan. 31-Feb. 17. Reba McEntire, Alan Jackson, Billy Ray Cyrus, Taylor Swift, Brooks & Dunn and Montgomery Gentry are just a few of the A-listers taking the stage at Six Flags Fiesta Texas for this show.

Houston's Reliant Park is home to a show March 3-22 that does more than show off livestock. Since its 1932 debut, the show has donated more than $230 million to scholarships and endowments. Info: rodeohouston.com

Willie Nelson, Styx and Gretchen Wilson have performed at The Star of Texas Rodeo. This year's show runs March 13-28. Info: staroftexas.org
