Jerrod Niemann has raised $100,000 for his Free the Music charity thanks to a prize-winning bull he named after his latest album, High Noon. Jerrod became a Back Seat Buckers Celebrity Stock contractor back in January, and the bull he selected has now gone on to win the 2014 Back Seat Buckers grand prize at the organization’s recent championship event at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas.
Jerrod is amazed the bull’s success generated $100,000 in prize money for his charity, which supports music education and collects used instruments for children and teens in need.
He says, “I was hoping we’d be able to get in there with High Noon and raise some funds for children and their opportunities to have music as a steady part of their lives, but I didn’t realize we could be blessed enough to do so well.”
Back Seat Buckers is a bull ownership program created that allows anyone to become a stock contractor and provides care, housing and training for bulls for their first year of competition.
