The Cowboy Kickoff Concert & Pep Rally is back September 4th at the University of Wyoming featuring this year's headlining act, country singer Josh Turner!

“Last year’s concert was a tremendous success, helping to bolster excitement for another football season and we look forward to the event as it becomes an annual UW tradition,” says Nick Popplewell, Assistant UW Athletics Director for Marketing and Branding.

This year’s event, produced by Townsquare Media in cooperation with The University of Wyoming, will be at the Madrid Sports Complex on the UW campus. Gates will open at 6:00 PM and the entertainment will begin at 7:00 PM. Josh Turner, an award-winning country music star, whose No. 1 hits include “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” “Your Man,” “Would You Go With Me,” and “All Over Me,” will be the featured performer.

The Pokes host the University of North Dakota in War Memorial Stadium Saturday, Sept. 5th. Kickoff time will be announced at a later time.
