SIKESTON JAYCEE BOOTHEEL RODEO ADS NELLY TO THE LINE UP
SIKESTON, Mo.: The Sikeston Jaycee Bootheel Rodeo has added Diamond Selling, Multi-platinum, Grammy award-winning rap superstar Nelly to follow Wednesday night’s Rodeo events.
Since hitting the scene in 1993 Nelly has won three Grammy Awards and released six top-selling studio albums. He’s had several hits including “Hot in Here” and “Over and Over.” Nelly has collaborated with several country artists including Tim McGraw, and most recently Florida Georgia Line. The collaboration with FGL received Diamond status and he’s only one of seven rappers to reach this honor.
“This year marks the 20th anniversary of his debut album Country Grammer – an album that solidified Nelly as one of the most influential and foundational hip-hop artists of the 2000s. What better way to celebrate that than in your home state,” said Travis Deere, 2020 Rodeo Chairman. “We’re excited to bring another Missouri native to our stage. His music brings a new element to Rodeo’s atmosphere.”
Tickets to Wednesday night’s event are on sale now for $25 and can be purchased online at SikestonRodeo.com, over the phone by calling 800-455-BULL or in person at the Rodeo box office.
