Mack Ginn - Rodeo Announcer
I grew up Mississippi, where Southern Hospitality, Yes Ma’am, Sweet Tea, Fried Chicken, and Corn Bread are as much a part of everyday life as waking up and brushing your teeth! Although I did not grow up in a rodeo family or around the rodeo industry; respect, responsibility, loving the outdoors, livestock, and farm life was instilled at an early age.
As I grew older, I fell in love with the sport of Rodeo and all that the Western Way of Life entailed! From the pulsating action of the bucking chutes with the Snorty Broncs and Bad Bulls, to the fans cheering for new arena records set in the lightning fast timed events, to the smell and sound of the stock, the dirt on the arena floor, even the white lines whizzing by as miles are clicked off on the way to the next rodeo.
During my first year to announce in 2013, 3R Rodeo gave me an opportunity to be the voice of their final three events that year. The following year ,in 2014, I announced 17 rodeos for Dale & Renate Ray. When nobody else would give an unknown announcer a chance, 3R Rodeo gave me a place to begin developing and honing my skills. That opportunity led me to be the voice of the 2016 PCFR and multiple other Association Finals stretching from Florida to Northern Minnesota and from the Peach State of Georgia out to Guthrie Oklahoma’s Fabulous Lazy E Arena over the years! Today, My schedule doesn’t allow me to announce as may rodeos for 3R; but the seven rodeos I am still involved with are always bittersweet, taking a step back to where it all started for me.
