In 1979, world champion saddle bronc rider Bill Smith started a nightly rodeo series in North Platte and hired Corley to announce it. He was acquaintances with Michelle and Trent Barrett, the children of the legendary North Platte native Hadley Barrett, also a rodeo announcer. Michelle, who ran barrels, and Trent, who roped at the rodeo, insisted their dad, a rancher north of town, come to the rodeo to hear this young announcer. He did and a few weeks later, he asked Corley if he’d be interested in getting his PRCA card. Corley was, and Hadley assisted him in becoming a PRCA member.

By 14, Munsell was team roping and riding bulls, but by the time he turned 17, in addition to riding bulls, he was fighting them as well.
"That bull can see you; he's going to follow you. The best way to do it, is you be the aggressor," Munsell said. "You grab hold of the animal. You (say) heh or you whistle."
In 2020, Munsell was one of five bullfighters nominated for the PRCA bullfighter of the year. In 2019, he was one of six.

"Jersey" Jake Ostrum
Growing up on the East Coast in Woodstown, New Jersey, Professional Rodeo Music Director Jake Ostrum’s love of America’s original sport of rodeo began at a young age. One would think Rodeo would be hard to find in New Jersey, but Jake lived only 1 mile from the longest running weekly PRCA Rodeo in the country, the legendary Cowtown Pro Rodeo. It was at Cowtown where he spent his Saturday nights, every summer, for as long as he can remember. Jake has been a part of pretty much every aspect of rodeo. From announcing to actually producing his own rodeo events. He began his professional rodeo career in 2010 as a music director and has since built a library of music of every genre that is second to none. He has been selected the last eight years as the music director for the PRCA First Frontier Circuit Finals, and in 2022 was selected as music director for the National Finals Steer Roping. If you ask him though, his greatest accomplishment of them all is being the proud father of two boys, and husband to his wife Jessica.
Prairie Smoke will be performing after the performances on Friday and Saturday nights. This will be their 4th year; our crowd loves them! The dance is free with your rodeo ticket. Stay and listen to their classic and red dirt country.
