The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo began in 1932 and raises charity money that benefits youth, supports education and facilitates better agricultural practices through exhibitions and presentation. The show has raised more than $430 million for the youth of Texas since its inception.
2017 is already proving to be a busy year for Hunt. In addition to his upcoming performance at the rodeo, the singer released new music on New Year's Day. A track called "Drinkin' Too Much" preceded the news that the singer also became engaged to longtime girlfriend Hannah Lee Fowler.
