SAN ANTONIO — It is with heavy hearts that we announce that Hadley Barrett, the voice of the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo for 28 years, has passed away today, March 2, 2017. Details of his passing are still forthcoming. He was scheduled to announce Rodeo Austin, March 11-25.

In his 87 years, Hadley’s accomplishments were many, including being named four separate times the PRCA Announcer of the Year. He was inducted into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame in 1999.

Hadley had the unique ability to explain idiosyncrasies of rodeo to those less familiar with the sport – he intimately knew the resume of the contestants, would explain the scoring system, and even knew the demeanor and habits of the bucking stock.

With kindness and humor, Hadley was an amazing professional – he had the capacity to maintain the same high level energy and engagement for 21 consecutive performances.

Hadley and our community had a mutual love for one another. Many patrons particularly loved the warm, fun-loving interviews with the Mutton Bustin’ winners, and his soulful tribute to our servicemen men and women and the freedoms they provide us. He will perhaps be most remembered for his faithful, heartfelt opening invocation at every Rodeo.

Hadley Barrett loved the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo. At a wrap up meeting this past weekend he said, “Of all the years I’ve been announcing, that San Antonio Finals was the best Rodeo I have ever announced.”

Hadley will be deeply missed by all.
