COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -
You don't see this on average at the Columbus Civic Center: cowboys riding bulls, young men as bull fighters, and a clown in the center of it all.

It's all part of a trend to attract a new crowd to Civic Center.  Burt Davis knows all too well about attracting crowds.

"The crowd is so electrifying, it's a lot different than a rodeo because these people come and they are ready to have a good time and for two and half hours they are just going to have a rock & roll time," Davis said.  

Burt has been rocking and rolling for almost 40 years. He's a professional rodeo clown who has taught over 10 dogs a lot of tricks. He's even done a stint on America's Got Talent.
 
"We did the Dallas audition, they did a nice little segment on us and then we went to the Vegas round; our dogs did really well there," Davis said. 

They had to back out because of contract issues so they've stuck with Professional Bull Riders or PBR. Its a sport unlike any other. Buddy Bush can attest to that, he's a bull fighter.

"Its not a thinking thing for sure, you can't think about its a reaction game you just got to do," Bush said. 

And luring bulls is what Buddy knows best. He's wanted to live this dream since he was kid and says he wouldn't have it any other way.

"I don't know being able to help somebody out when they are in trouble its fun, the rush its a fun feeling," Bush said.  

Civic Center Director Ross Horner says valet parking which was approved this week in city council isn't the only new twist heading to the Center. He says they have Vegas style shows lined up to hit the area. 

This weekend all eyes are on Burt Davis and the Cowboys. 

"It will but a smile on your face and warm your heart."
