Ty Murray and Jewel
Ty Murray was born on October 11th, 1969 in Arizona to a rodeo family. His dad was a rodeo hand and his mom was a rider in the National Little Britches Rodeo Association. Ty decided he wanted to be a rodeo star when he was just two years old. His father taught Ty some early lessons on the back of the family’s dog. The lessons worked and Ty won his first prize buckle when he was just 5-years-old. He won his first bull competition when he was only nine. Ty went on to be named the Arizona All-Around Junior Rodeo Champion nine years in a row.
