Cowboy Movies to Tide You Over When You Aren't at RodeoHouston
So you've left RodeoHouston and you wish you could take some of that same vibe home with you, or back to the office. Never fear, we've found some great country-laden rodeo flicks for you to further your westernization. Remember, it doesn't need to be rodeo season for you to enjoy this stuff. Hell, I watch Urban Cowboy on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Most of these can be found at your favorite online video outlet or streaming site, and when I could, I used the full versions found on YouTube. Apparently some movie studios frown on their entire catalogs being free on YouTube. Pshhh...
We start with 8 Seconds because it's directly associated with bullriding. The rest have enough scruff, cowboy hats, country music and guns to put you in the rodeo mood. Well, maybe not the guns. I don't think I need to tell you not to take guns to the rodeo. Or maybe I do; this is Houston, after all.

My Heroes Have Always Been Cowboys
(Note: This is not the 1991 Scott Glenn movie, but a short doc featuring Waylon Jennings about real-life cowboys. I know all of you Scott Glenn fanboys and fangirls were getting your hopes up.)
