Barrelman - Dusty Myers

 

 

The bull riders won’t be the only brave souls in the arena at the 101 Wild West Rodeo this year, with a 2,000-pound bull bearing down on you, it helps to have a sense of humor. It also helps to have a barrel to hide in. Dusty Myers, from Jumpertown, Mississippi, has traveled the world entertaining crowds for several years now. He started at the age of thirteen fighting bulls and accomplished several awards in that sport.

Some kids grow up wanting to be a firefighter, others a doctor or policeman, but for Jumpertown, Mississippi, cowboy, Dusty Myers, he always knew he wanted to entertain audiences and be a rodeo clown.

Growing up watching rodeos from behind the chutes, instead of in the grandstands, rodeo was bred into him with his father being a competitor and bull fighter. “I began riding from an early age, but my passion was to always protect the fallen riders. I started fighting bulls at the age of thirteen and have never looked back,” smiled Dusty.

His career as a daring bull fighter lasted a little over twelve years before his desire of wanting to entertain audiences took over. “I love meeting new people and traveling and in today’s times I love nothing more than being able to put a smile on not only kids faces, but their parents also. If I can make someone laugh and they forget about everything else for a while that makes my day.”

It didn’t take long for Dusty to become one of the top clowns in the business; with a seeming less funny personality that came naturally.“I’m always working on new acts and skits to entertain my audiences. I grew up watching the likes of Lecile Harris and others, which I learned a lot from, but like to make my acts my own.”

All his hard work and passion for his newly chosen career has paid off. In just a couple of years he has earned many awards in the "clowning" business, He has worked the IFR (international finals rodeo) on 10 different occasions, SFR twice, NFPB Finals 3 times, CRRA finals, and Every region finals the IPRA has to offer. His biggest achievement was being selected "clown of the year" 8 consecutive years, with eight ‘Clown of the Year’ titles under his belt and being the barrel man at the IFR ten times. Now having worked over 15 finals in the past five years.

If you get the chance.... come see Dusty perform at the 101 Wild West Rodeo and you won't be disappointed!!!!

Dusty Myers and his Bull Fighters provide a line of defense for bull riders in the arena.
While they swap one-liners with rodeo announcer Garrett Yerigan, they also perform the important task of distracting the bulls and keeping them away from the riders.
