Music superstars Brooks & Dunn, Sugarland and Alan Jackson are among the list of top country performers who will entertain live in concert for fans at Cheyenne Frontier Days 2010 (www.cfdrodeo.com), festival promoters announced Nov. 20, 2009.

Also among the lineup for the 114th Cheyenne Frontier Days, to be held July 23-Aug. 1, 2010, will be Neal McCoy, Aaron Tippin and Clay Walker.

Negotiations are still underway for entertainment for July 23 and July 24, said Rod Hottle, general chairman for Cheyenne Frontier Days.

"We are especially pleased to have Brooks and Dunn performing for our 2010 Frontier Nights schedule because, as many of their fans know, they have announced they are breaking up the act, and will make final appearances together next year in what they are calling The Last Rodeo Tour," said Hottle. "We are excited that Cheyenne Frontier Days 2010 will be a stop on their Last Rodeo Tour."

Performing together as a team since 1990, Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn announced their break up to their fans on Aug. 10, 2009.

"After 20 years of making music and riding this trail together, we have agreed as a duo that it's time to call it a day," the two men wrote on their Web site. "This ride has been everything and more than we could ever have dreamed.... We owe it all to you, the fans. If you hear rumors, don't believe them, it's just time."

Their many hits include "My Maria," "Believe" and "Boot Scootin' Boogie."

The Frontier Nights performance schedule for the announced entertainers include:

  • - Brooks & Dunn, July 24
  • - Neal McCoy & Aaron Tippin, July 25
  • - Clay Walker, July 28
  • - Sugarland, July 30
  • - Alan Jackson, July 31

The current lineup has some interesting aspects for Cheyenne Frontier Days fans.

Neal McCoy and Aaron Tippin are entertainers sure to keep the crowd on its feet. Clay Walker is set to release his new single, "She Won't Be Lonely Long," in December and is currently working on his ninth studio album. Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush were just named Vocal Duo of the Year at the 43rd CMA show, and Country music chart topper Alan Jackson has not performed at the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo since 2003.

Cheyenne Frontier Days will open concert ticket sales for the 2010 season on Saturday, Dec. 5 at 9 a.m., Hottle said, as well as rodeo tickets and ticket packages.
