Wow. The hits just keep on coming with Coronavirus fears. The latest: the venerable Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, a nearly month-long event that began in late February that also features concerts from some of country music’s biggest names and draws millions of attendees. 

According to show officials, someone who later tested positive for the virus attended the event’s kickoff barbecue on February 28th. 

The cancellation is 11 days ahead of the event’s March 22nd finale, and includes all concerts, which this year was to feature artists like Jon Pardi, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley.
