Saddle Bronc athlete turned neo-traditional country music sensation, Chancey Williams, has gone from competing on horseback to performing on center stage.
As one of only two artists (Chris LeDoux) to both compete in the rodeo and perform on the main stage at Cheyenne Frontier Days and the only singer/songwriter to be endorsed by CINCH®, Williams is the next authentic cowboy of country music.
Growing up on a ranch in the northeastern corner of Wyoming, Williams is one of the proud few hailing from Moorcroft, WY – a town so small it doesn’t need stoplights. Rodeo, wrestling, and academic talents took him first to Casper College and then to the University of Wyoming. Chancey earned several degrees, including a Master’s in Public Administration, but it was music and the camaraderie of the road that continues to take him all over the United States.
2021 brought a sense of “near normalcy” back on the road in many areas of the country. Chancey finished out last year with a tour sponsored by CINCH, a series of dates with Toby Keith, a sold-out show with Cody Johnson at the Ryman Auditorium, and an especially memorable concert as direct support for one of his idols, Alan Jackson. The National Finals Rodeo returned to Las Vegas and Chancey headlined the main showroom at South Point, “ground zero” at the most important rodeo event in the world.
Beginning 2022, Chancey was named iHeartRadio’s 2022 Rocky Mountain Country Music Awards Entertainer of the Year. Williams also won Songwriter of the Year for ‘The Saint’ and Album of the Year for his most recent record produced with country hitmaker, Trent Wilmon, 3rd Street. Recently, The WME Artist has also inked a new development deal with radio programming legend John Marks, who also led Sirius/XM “The Highway,” and then the Nashville office at Spotify.
Chancey’s current tour includes multiple dates with Parker McCollum and an appearance at Cheyenne Frontier Days with Dierks Bentley.
