The Cooper Tires Cody Nance Invitational 2022 – Presented by Bud Light

JACKSON – Tennessee native bull rider Cody Nance is bringing two nights of action-packed bull riding, bullfighting, and mutton busting events to the Oman Arena for the annual Cooper Tires Cody Nance Invitational presented by BUDLIGHT on January 21st and 22nd. You’ll witness twenty-five of the toughest bull riders in western sports take over the arena and keep you on the edge of your seat as they compete for their share of the weekend’s $10,000 prize money and a one-of-a-kind trophy buckle up for grabs each night. 

Adding to the excitement this year, professional bullfighters will test their agility against some of the strongest animal athletes in the business during each day’s bull riding round. High-energy tricks, flips, and close calls will unfold as the seasoned competitors display courage, athleticism, and the skill to stay just arms-length away from their charging bovine opponents.

Never one to overlook the next generation climbing the ranks in the sport, including his own sons, Nance’s event will feature an added element of fun for the whole family, as local youth compete in a mutton busting competition with trophies and bragging rights on the line.

Now adding producing his own live events to his many talents, Nance is committed to creating the same energy in the arena that he has enjoyed from the chutes over the years.

“This is going to be an event not to be missed. Rodeo fans have always enjoyed the intense action of bull riding, but this event combines that with the talent and skill of professional bull fighting as well as mutton busting for the kids. I’m thrilled to be able to create and produce such a high-energy, family-fun event right here in my hometown.”
