Las Vegas, Nev. (December 5th, 2012) – Television host
and actress Laura Lynn has been named the official host of Sheplers
WNFR Insider during the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo December 6th
through the 15th in Las Vegas. The event coverage, which will include
videos and blogs of exclusive interviews, footage from the Rodeo Vegas
concerts and Team Mirage Cowboys and Cowgirls, and nightly event recaps,
will be posted to Sheplers official WNFR website.
“I am very excited to be working with Sheplers for WNFR,” Lynn said.
“Vegas glitz and glam is always incredible, but when you add cowboys and
cowgirls, country stars, pro riders and all of Las Vegas goes country,
it doesn’t get any better than that”!
Last month, Sheplers officially announced its partnership with
The Mirage Hotel & Casino and Rodeo Vegas for the WNFR in an effort
to create a more interactive experience for rodeo goers and an exclusive
behind-the-scenes look for rodeo fans around the world. Despite the
event’s demanding schedule, Laura Lynn will also be covering the
American Country Awards on December 10th as a host for syndicated show
Nashville Music Minute.
This years entertainment line-up at the WNFR includes performances from
Miss Willie Brown, Josh Thompson, Craig Morgan, Maggie Rose, Sam Riddle,
Daryle Singletary, Justin McBride and Chris Cagle.
