 California Rodeo Salinas - History
The word "rodeo" is derived from the Spanish word "rodear" meaning to roundup, and was the name used in the Spanish Ranchero days when the semi-wild herds of cattle were gathered in the spring for branding, ear-marking and castration.
In 1924, with the title cleared, the rodeo was reincorporated as the "California Rodeo, Inc." and a municipal bond issue in the amount of $40,000 was passed.
Later, in 1929, the contest evolved into the "Sweetheart of the Rodeo" and was won by Miss Lilian Kirschner of Santa Clara County.

Since the advent of the CD, The ByrdsSweetheart of the Rodeo has been released on several occasions: first, in its original but horrible sounding format; then as a remastered, expanded collection featuring several remarkable bonus tracks.

Sweetheart of the Rodeo was a brave excursion for The Byrds into what was widely held by the rock community as a genre characterised by hick attitudes and boho sentiments, the kind of things the younger generation were busy rebelling against.
There, country shared space with psychedelia and space rock, but by the time Sweetheart was made, the band had all but jettisoned them in favour of a return to what Roger McGuinn saw as the roots of American music.
Sweetheart of the Rodeo marked the last time the band was truly groundbreaking.

Otherwise, “Sweetheart” features the group’s straightforward take on country, as well as two excellent Dylan tunes and the R&B standard “You Don’t Miss Your Water.” Then as now, it’s a refreshing, honorable attempt to play traditional music with a rock attitude, a brave act of playing “redneck” music to the “hippie” faithful.

The Byrds' Sweetheart of the Rodeo was not the first important country-rock album (Gram Parsons managed that feat with The International Submarine Band's debut Safe at Home), and The Byrds were hardly strangers to country music, dipping their toes in the twangy stuff as early as their second album.
But no major band had gone so deep into the sound and feeling of classic country (without parody or condescension) as the Byrds did on Sweetheart; at a time when most rock fans viewed country as a musical "L'il Abner" routine, the Byrds dared to declare that C&W could be hip, cool, and heartfelt.
While many cite this as more of a Gram Parsons album than a Byrds set, given the strong country influence of McGuinn and Hillman's later work, it's obvious Parsons didn't impose a style upon this band so much as he tapped into a sound that was already there, waiting to be released.

Well, it’s rodeo season again...and, as usual, I’ve been under much financial strain, so I got me a part-time job up there at the rodeo, like I have every year for the past three years–even though after each rodeo season I promise myself I won’t go back.
The crowd of cowboys–barbecued turkey leg in one hand, other hand in the back pocket of their sweethearts’ blue jeans–parted as she walked toward me. As she neared, I noticed a crown around the brim of her hat, rhinestones gleaming in the shape of hearts and the numbers 1999.
I led her in stumbling dizziness to the double ferris wheel, which we immediately boarded, since the "Miss Sunshine Cow Patty Sweetheart of the Rodeo 1999 Early Twenties Division" didn’t have to wait in line for anything at any rodeo event for the duration of her reign.

It was what you wanted to hear when you were packing your car on a dewy morning for a car ride west, music that offered hope, as Dylan put it, to "every hung-up person in the whole wide universe." And as a harbinger of psychedelic music, it was as dead as a dodo by 1967.
With "Sweetheart of the Rodeo" (1968), the band found a hat -- a Stetson no less -- and stuck with it, at least for that album.
Columbia, though still supportive, did not know how to market "Sweetheart of the Rodeo." At the end of the rerelease you'll hear a radio ad from the time.

If asked for my all-time list of top 10 albums (and we all love to play this game), I would surely include the Byrds' "Sweetheart of the Rodeo." It was the blueprint country-rock album that influenced the Eagles and all of their successors.
Also included are the lead vocals that Parsons originally did for such "Sweetheart" tracks as "The Christian Life," but that were cut because of contractual troubles surrounding an Internationial Submarine Band album.
General music listeners are still advised to pick up "Sweetheart of the Rodeo" in its original version, but collectors and diehard Parsons fans will enjoy sifting through some of these alternate takes and the International Submarine Band material.
