The world’s greatest cowboys and cowgirls will descend upon AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas for the second year in a row, on March 1, 2015 for THE AMERICAN. This historic event has become the richest one-day rodeo in history of the sport. When the dust settles at this action-packed event, the toughest competitors in the world will ride away with the most significant one-day cash payout ever awarded, with a total purse of $2m paid out in one day. THE AMERICAN has once again invited the top 10 athletes in each of the traditional rodeo events as well as the top contestants from the Professional Bull Riders (PBR). In addition to the 10 invitees, THE AMERICAN has made 5 additional spots available for any rodeo athlete in the world through regional qualifying events.

Like all rodeos, THE AMERICAN needed a voice and they didn’t have to look very far to find one.  Randy Schmutz, from Stephenville, Texas has been selected for the second year as one of two announcers to work this historic rodeo performance. Randy has been one of the most recognizable voices in professional rodeo for 28 years. The rodeo road has taken Randy to places he’d never dreamed of seeing. He’s been chosen to work PRCA rodeos and Professional Bull Riding events from Walla Walla, Washington to Madison Square Garden in New York City and from Rapid City, South Dakota to Corpus Christi, Texas. Along the way, Randy has been selected 43 different times to work 11 different finals, including the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo (alternate); the Professional Bull Riders (PBR) World Finals; the Badlands; the Great Lakes; the Montana and the Mountain States Circuit Finals Rodeos; the Dodge National Circuit Finals Rodeo; the College National Finals Rodeo; the National High School Finals Rodeo and the Indian National Finals Rodeo.

“I won’t lie to you, I dreamed my whole life of announcing the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas,” explained Schmutz. “And I’ve come close, but was never selected. THE AMERICAN is my National Finals Rodeo! I’m overwhelmed and honored to be selected to work the most historic and talked about one-day rodeo in the history of our sport for two years in a row!”

Randy has also been nominated twice as PRCA Announcer of the Year and emceed the Miss Rodeo America Pageant 5 times. Randy also wrote, co-produced and directed the opening ceremonies at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo for two years alongside the Sutton Rodeo Company. He and his wife, Amber and their three children have lived in Stephenville since 1992 and own and operate the XS Ranch where they have been breeding quality bucking bulls for over 20 years.  Randy and Amber now manage the United Bucking Bulls, Inc and Don Gay Bull Riding Tour, which produces and sanctions over 30 bucking bull and bull riding events each year.

Randy will be joined by professional rodeo announcer Bob Tallman from Weatherford, Texas.
