Born in Arizona, Dan Fowlie knew he had an immediate love for rodeo when his mother took him to the 1968 Phoenix Jaycee’s Rodeo. It wasn’t until his college years he got the opportunity to compete in rodeo as an Eastern Arizona College rodeo contestant while studying Ag Marketing. He competed and won money in 4 out of 6 of rodeo’s toughest events. Dan has been hugely attracted to the grandeur of rodeo. Like the small child he was when he saw his first rodeo, the sport of rodeo makes him feel young at heart.
Dan began announcing at rodeo’s to subsidize his fees as a contestant. Although he still competes in the team roping at an amateur level. An injury in the steer wrestling in 1998 allowed him to refocus his rodeo efforts and channel his talent to the announcer stand. Although the demands of rodeo keep Dan on the road a lot. He really enjoys the time he gets to spend in the West Valley of Phoenix raising a family with his wife of 23 years, Annette, who also enjoys the sport of rodeo and still competes in barrel racing today. They have four wonderful children, C.J., Savannah, Macie, Sterling, all of whom compete and have won several saddles, buckles and various awards for their efforts. When not rodeoing, it takes the whole family to help in raising horned corriente cattle for use in the rodeo industry.
Having originally honed his skills at places like Estrella Park, Mr. Lucky’s in Phoenix, and having worked all levels of rodeo. Dan Fowlie is recognized and permitted to work with rodeo’s elite, as one of less than 150 announcers nationwide with the Professional Rodeo Cowboy’s Association, aka PRCA. He has been selected to work some of the biggest venues in Pro Rodeo having been chosen three times to call the action at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo Benny Binion Bucking Horse and Bull Sale in Las Vegas. Dan annually works great PRCA rodeos like RAM Turquoise Circuit Finals in Las Cruces NM, Rodeo de Santa Fe, NM, Buckeye Helzapoppin PRCA Rodeo, Cave Creeks Wayne Wilson PRCA Rodeo, Safford PRCA rodeo, Queen Creek Roots and Boots, Steamboat Springs, CO along with stops at Anchorage Alaska for Rodeo Alaska, Amador County Fair, Plymouth CA, Sonoita AZ & Gilbert Days as well as over 1000 performances in his 25+ years behind the mike.
But amongst his favorite events are the venues he’s been selected to work in Buckeye. Dan Fowlie says “You bet this is the biggest and the best, it’s my hometown rodeo”. I live in the west valley of Phoenix, a mecca of rodeo action. Snowbird rodeo contestants from all over the world are envious that I live in Arizona in the winter. “Heck ya, I love being in the west valley in the winter months I enjoy roping and all things cowboy. Buckeye and the surrounding areas have great rodeos, roping, & cowboy events all winter long.”
The sport of rodeo continues to keep Dan young. He believes “being involved in rodeo has provided me the opportunity to do what I love. It’s the people that make a difference - and rodeo has the best.”
Some of the great venues Dan has had the pleasure of calling include Ram Turquoise Circuit Finals in Las Cruces, Rodeo de Santa Fe PRCA rodeo, Hellzapoppin PRCA Rodeo, Wayne Wilson Memorial PRCA Rodeo in Cave Creek, Annual Sonoita Rodeo, Gilbert Days IPRA Rodeo, Queen Creek WPRA, as well as thousands of performances in his 25 year career.
