Today he's among the most successful and relevant country singers in the business. Bentley's kind of country has never been straight-up-the-middle.

12) Goat Yoga at Pine Ranch - Carpenter, WY.
July 23, 2022 / 9:00am to 10:30am / $35 per person
Kick off your Frontier Days adventure in an unforgettable way - Goat Yoga!
This exciting class will have you doing Downward Facing Dog alongside and with our Ranch goat babies! This is a group yoga class with the addition of live baby goats who are guided by their trainer to interact with students in specific poses. Indeed, the baby goats will be guided with feed, and also stop them from occasionally munching on a ponytail. (Trainers also take responsibility for cleaning up any accidents. But be warned: There’s no guarantee a goat won’t do its business while on top of your back.)
You will have 1/2 hour before class to visit and get to know your classmates and the goats. Mat time will be 1 hour with some time after for cool down and goat snuggling. We ask that you arrive fifteen minutes before class starts. Bring an outdoor-friendly mat, your yoga beverage of choice and wear comfortable clothes. Children are always welcome but we ask that your children be old enough to quietly sit on their mat for the entire duration of class without disruption should they choose not to participate in yoga.

22) Randall King - Outlaw Saloon
July 24, 2022 / 7:00pm to 11:00pm / $10
One of country’s new crop of modern traditionalists, Warner Music Nashville artist Randall King grew up on the endless plains of West Texas – and his sound is steeped in their timeless beauty, both gritty and graceful at the same time. He grew up singing in the back of a ‘93 Chevy Suburban, mimicking the pure-country vocals of stars like Keith Whitley, George Strait, Alan Jackson and John Anderson and over the years became drawn to the electrifying energy of modern stars like Eric Church, Dierks Bentley and Jason Aldean. After years of hustling and a road-warrior’s diet of 150 shows each year, King produced and released the defiant 2016 EP, Another Bullet, then followed up with a 2018 self-titled album.
