GUTHRIE, Okla. – Susie McEntire-Eaton will host Cowboy Church in conjunction with the 2013 Timed Event Championship at the Lazy E Arena.
McEntire-Eaton will perform with her husband, Mark Eaton, during the service, set for 9 a.m. Sunday, March 3, inside the arena. McEntire-Eaton, a country Christian artist, is well known for her spiritual and uplifting music; she also is co-host of Cowboy Church, which airs at 4:30 p.m. Central on RFD-TV.
McEntire-Eaton grew up on a ranch in southeastern Oklahoma as one of four children born to Jackie and Clark McEntire. Her father was a three-time world champion steer roper, following in the footsteps of his father, who also won a steer roping world title. Rodeo has always been a big part of the McEntires’ lives, and Cowboy Church services are a way for McEntire-Eaton to combine her ministry with the sport.
The Timed Event Championship is an invitation-only event in which the 20 contestants compete in all five timed-event disciplines. The top prize for best cumulative score will receive $50,000, but the overall purse is $150,000. This year marks the 28th year of the unique championship.
