It's Brodeo Time! RodeoHouston Announces Jonas Brothers, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley and Brooks & Dunn for 2010

Monday morning, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo announced the first four entertainers next March's musical entertainment at Reliant Stadium. Jonas Brothers, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, and Brooks & Dunn have all been tapped to perform at next year's rodeo. The Kix and Ronnie date will be the duo's last rodeo appearance, as B&D plan to part ways at the end of 2010.

This will be the Jonas Brothers' second Houston rodeo appearance and their third concert in town in the past year. No doubt their March 7 show will sell out, so either start getting in line like freakin' now, or start growing an extra kidney to hawk so you can line the pockets of a scalper for a pair of tickets for your little girls. Fellow 2009 rodeo alum and Joe Jonas ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift will be bypassing this year's Reliant Stadium event for a two-night stand at Reliant Arena at the end of May.

Tim McGraw has been too busy acting and seeing his wife Faith Hill naked every morning, so his rodeo date has been along time coming. The Friday Night Light film star is releasing a new album tomorrow called Southern Voice, which he will no doubt be performing hits off of on March 8.

Meanwhile, Brad Paisley pulls into Reliant on March 11 for his second straight rodeo appearance. Perusing Paisley's Wiki entry, we found out that he is a practicing Freemason, which means we will have nothing but good things to say about him out of fear for our lives. Last year he put on quite a show for the teeming masses of screaming glittered cougars and bejeweled saber-tooths in the crowd. He also smells very good.

Seeing that this will be the Brooks & Dunn rodeo show, expect this one also to sell out. The duo has been a staple of the concert series since before Nick Jonas was even born. The bromance between these two is coming to an end at the close of 2010 as they plan to part ways after twenty years together. We are already crying under the neon moon thinking about a world without them.

Speaking of Tim McGraw, in 2004 he and quasi-rapper Nelly collaborated for a video for their duet "Over And Over". It occurred to us just a few years ago that the video is shot to make it look as if the country crooner and hip-hop artist are caught in a tangled Brokeback-esque homoerotic web of lies. Or maybe not. Yes, we have done too many drugs.
