The Austin Rodeo hosted its annual gala — one of Austin's largest black-tie affairs  — on February 2. Held at the Palmer Events Center, the evening was a fundraiser for Rodeo Austin. 

In addition to a live and silent auction, cocktails, and gourmet bites, guests were treated to music from Ray Wylie Hubbard, and the Unleashed Live Reunion Tour featuring Jack Ingram, Bruce Robison, and Charlie Robison.

In true Texas fashion, there were plenty of blue jeans, belt buckles, and cowboy hats, as well as cowboy boots featuring every color and embroidered design you could imagine. Top that off with a handful of rhinestones and sequins, and you've got a true Texas night to remember.
