Las Vegas Events announced that Charmayne James is to be honored at the 2022 Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas along with Trevor Brazile and Ty Murray.
During the first three performances, each of the rodeo champions will be honored on the hallowed dirt of the Thomas & Mack Center. The presentation will include each receiving a 14” custom-made bronze statue of their likeness and a ceremony to unfurl a banner in the rafters at the Thomas & Mack Center.
The in-arena schedule for the icons is as follows:
Thursday, Dec. 1 – Trevor Brazile
Friday, Dec. 2 – Charmayne James
Saturday, Dec. 3 – Ty Murray
“Las Vegas Events is committed to honoring the history and legacy of the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas,” says LVE President, Pat Christenson. “Since 1985, Las Vegas has crowned more than 320 World Champions. Winning one World title makes a career. Winning more than nine is iconic. The history and legacy of the Wrangler NFR is driven by its great champions. This year we will begin to honor the most decorated contestants of the past 36 years, both in arena and at the luncheon in their honor.”
For each icon, LVE will develop a promotional campaign to promote the three legends and build a daily activation calendar to build anticipation for the ceremony inside the Thomas & Mack Center that evening.
In addition to the ceremony raising their banners to the rafters during the first three performances, several events are planned for the Icons. They will appear at The Cowboy Channel Cowboy Christmas on The Cowboy Channel. The Inaugural Vegas NFR Icons Tribute Luncheon is set for Thursday, Dec. 1 at the Virgin Hotel where all three will go three on two with hosts Butch Knowles and Jeff Medders. The two announcers are icons themselves as they have been the broadcast team for the NFR for more than 30 years. This is sure to be one of the hottest tickets at this year’s NFR.
“This is tremendous recognition, and I am so appreciative to be honored along with Trevor and Ty,” James says. “That is a real treat to share this with them because they are my buddies.”
