Cord McCoy to be part of Guymon PBR

Twisted Rodeo - 4 hours 2 min ago

GUYMON, Okla. – There are a lot of adjectives to describe Cord McCoy: former bull rider, television show host, livestock contractor and reality TV star.

They’re all mixed into a giant bag of cowboy. This weekend McCoy will be in the Oklahoma Panhandle for the Kasey Hayes & Stormy Wing Invitational PBR Touring Pro event, set for 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 26, at Henry C. Hitch Pioneer Arena in Guymon.

McCoy will be one of the stock contractors at the event, providing bucking bulls to match the power of some of the Professional Bull Riders brightest rising stars. He also will be making appearances Saturday in Guymon.

From 10 a.m.-noon, McCoy will be part of an autograph session at Carter’s Market Place, where he also will announce the winner of the “Name the Bull” contest.

Starting at 2:30 p.m., he will be at Bob’s Cowboy Bar and Rodeo Room signing autographs and meeting with fans. A booth will be set up at the arena before the event begins for autographs from McCoy, Hayes, Wing and other PBR stars.

McCoy, a ranch-raised cowboy from the tiny southeastern Oklahoma town of Tupelo, is a five-time International Professional Rodeo Association champion who qualified in bull riding for the National Finals Rodeo in 2005. In the years since, he has qualified numerous times to the PBR World Finals.

He is the host of “The Ride with Cord McCoy,” which airs on RFD-TV. Most notably, he and his brother, Jet, have appeared an unprecedented three times on the CBS-TV reality series “The Amazing Race,” most recently during the spring 2014 season. The McCoys have been fan favorites on the show since their first appearance in 2010. In fact, they were named Best Dynamic Duo for the 2014 CBS Fan Awards.

In addition to witnessing the true spectacle that is the PBR and seeing the association’s big names, this is a great opportunity for fans to meet one of the most well-known cowboys today.

Pop the Champagne Diamond for Your Seasonal Fashion Transition

Lifestyles - 5 hours 48 min ago
Five words or less

(NewsUSA) - Are you still trying to find the perfect accessory to your summer-to-fall-transition fashion staples? The answer may be as simple as adding the color of one gemstone: champagne diamonds from Rio Tinto's Argyle Mine in Australia.

"What we are seeing from the latest 2014 fall fashion trends is a match fit perfectly for champagne diamonds," says jewelry and style expert Michael O'Connor. "The light champagne to rich cognac natural shades are neutral, making them a perfect combination for all the neutrals that we're seeing in fashion as well as all of the rich brighter gemstone colors, popular at holiday time."

Since the diamond's color is natural, it's categorized as a "fancy colored" diamond. Yet, this word really doesn't do it justice considering its rarity -- for every 10,000 white diamonds, there is only one natural-color diamond. Despite its rarity, however, the champagne diamond remains price accessible, making it attainable for nearly anyone.

So which colors will fashionistas be coupling with Argyle champagne diamonds this season?

* Jewel tones. Metallic fabrics in shades ranging from cranberry and hot pink to deep emerald, teal, orchid, honey mustard, wine and crimson highlight this category.

* Bright tones. Orange, tangerine, cherry, fuchsia, caution yellow, lime and cobalt will surely "pop" this fall.

* Neutral tones. Fitting perfectly with the champagne diamond color spectrum, tones like loden, pea green, camel, cocoa, toffee, ivory, dove grey, grey, charcoal and ink were showcased in the 2014 spring shows as fall and winter must-haves.

* Soft tones. If pastel-style color is more your thing, consider tones like carnation, dusty rose, nude, peachy nude, ice blue, lilac and lavender.

No matter what colors you decide to sport during the transition to cooler seasons, be assured that Argyle champagne diamonds are a formidable fashion must-have with every style, including rocker chic, athletic wear, casual elegance and red carpet drama.

"The good news for those looking to maximize their fashion purchases is that champagne diamonds go with nearly any clothing category," says O'Connor. "The warm, neutral tones of champagne diamonds easily lend themselves to summer, fall and winter wear, making the transition from lightweight summer styles to winter's layered looks effortless."

This fall, nearly anybody can pick out their favorite outfit -- whether it be silk, neoprene or denim -- and feel comfortable knowing that their champagne diamond accessories will always match.
