Local musician brings bullfighting to Clarksville with Bulls, Booms, and Burgers event

CLARKSVILLE, TN (CLARKSVILLE NOW) – Local musician Daniel Walker runs the Walker Farm & Ranch off of Parchman Road. On Saturday, he hosted the second annual “Bulls, Booms, and Burgers.”

The event started with a Tannerite detonation, followed by live music, live bull riding, and the first ever freestyle bullfighting event in Clarksville.

Walker told Clarksville Now that while he knows there are concerns about the humane treatment of the bulls, he encourages everyone who is curious about their quality of life to come by his ranch.

“We love these animals as much as we love rodeo,” Walker said. “They live a life of luxury, they get fed 15 pounds of feed a day, not including hay, and they’re babied.”

Walker brought out professional bull riders for this event, including cowboy protection bull fighters, who protect the bull fighters from the bulls once they fall off. These cowboys came from all over the states, Walker said, including from places like Kentucky, Illinois, Ohio, and Louisiana. Even with the freestyle bullfighting event, Walker said that these animals will not be harmed.

“It’s very interesting, it’s like dancing, they try to keep that bull engaged on them.”

Walker said he hopes even more people will enjoy next year.
