#GFTravel Nashville: Franklin Rodeo
What do you get when you put together 276 cowboys and a thousand apple pies? A darn good time at the Franklin Rodeo! From steer wrestling to mutton busting, a trip to Nashville would not be complete without getting down to some southern rodeo roots. Billed as the largest rodeo in Tennessee and happening once a year just 20 minutes outside of Nashville, the Franklin Rodeo hosts over 16,000 attendees a year and is run by the local Rotary club to raise money for community causes. We got to celebrate their 65th anniversary Tennessee-style with some Strawberry shortcake, cowboy hats and some hootin â€˜n hollerin. Executive director Bill Fitzgerald roped us in before this yearâ€™s rodeo to talk steer ropinâ€™. The result? Weâ€™ll let the professionals do this from now on.
