Charlie Daniels Releases Song Dedicated to Wrangler National Finals Rodeo

charlie daniels

Charlie Daniels has produced a new song that uniquely captures the road that the cowboys endure to qualify for the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas to seek the coveted Gold Buckle and title of world champion. Entitled “It Don’t Get No Better Than That,” the song is the ultimate tribute to the cowboys and Las Vegas, the city that has hosted the world’s richest and most prestigious rodeo since 1985.

The song will be available on iTunes beginning Monday, October 12th. Proceeds from the song will be donated to the Justin Cowboy Crisis Fund and other organizations. During the Wrangler NFR, which takes place Dec. 3 – 12 in Las Vegas, fans can download the song for free at

With kicking lyrics and riffs by Charlie Daniels and his band, the song emanates with the sight and sounds of rodeo. Specific lyrics include: To be one of the Cowboys headed to Nevada to try for the December Gold/Where the lights shine bright in the clear desert night and the people come to rock and roll/Where the best of the best are put to the test and the rest might as well stay home. The chorus continues with Got to make it out to Vegas to the NFR where eight seconds in the saddle can make you a star/Where the neon glitters and the party don’t ever end.

“Being such a big rodeo fan, writing a song about cowboys and cowgirls, broncs and bulls and the excitement that surrounds the Wrangler NFR in Vegas every year was a natural for me,” said Charlie Daniels. “It don’t get no better than that.”

The collaboration with the Wrangler NFR began long ago with Daniels’ interest in the sport and the cowboys who endure long trips, muddy arenas and battered bodies to pursue the dream of competing in Las Vegas.

“Charlie is a Wrangler National Finals Rodeo icon,” said Pat Christenson, president of Las Vegas Events. “We are proud and excited that he has penned and sung a song that tributes the experience of the Wrangler NFR and the road to get to Las Vegas.”

Set for release on Oct. 16th, Charlie Daniels brings his career spanning over 50 years full circle and is set to release Live At Billy Bob’s Texas CD and DVD. The 14-track project joins The Charlie Daniels Band with the likes of legendary country artists like Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Gary Stewart, David Allan Coe, Pat Green, Randy Rogers Band, Stoney LaRue, Charlie Robison and many others as a member of the Live at Billy Bob’s Texas family.

Sold out for 290 consecutive performances at the Thomas & Mack Center, the Wrangler NFR attracts the top 15 contestants in bareback riding, steer wrestling, team roping, saddle bronc riding, tie-down roping, barrel racing, and bull riding. Under the new contract with the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association that runs through 2024, the purse in 2015 will jump to $10 million. Qualification is based on the 2015 PRCA World Standings.
