The song peaked at #4 during the last week of the 2016 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo, but the song meant much more to Dakota 105.5 listeners. One listener said, “I remember being that kid in every part of the song”. Instantly, Dakota 105.5’s Facebook, Twitter, and email started filling up with questions “Who sings that song”. The answer was a young man from Colorado, a former rodeo bareback rider who had chance meeting with Dakota 105.5 program director Ward Hilger in the Black Hills last summer. Knowing that KMOM’s audience enjoys the world and life of rodeo, the station felt they had to play the song for their listeners. On November 14th, “Rodeo Kid” cracked into the Top 20 chart based on airplay and requests.
