Barbara Bush remembered by RodeoHouston

George and Barbara Bush spent decades supporting one of Houston's favorite events, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.

They were tremendous supporters of the rodeo, and would arrive early to catch all of the action from the cowboys in concert.

"They had a very special relationship with some of the entertainers, Reba McEntire and Brad Paisley in particular. And when Reba or Brad would play they'd usually come in advance of the show and sit down and visit with them. And then they would enjoy seats right beside the bucking chute," Rodeo Houston President Joel Cowley said.
