HTX Rodeo 2014
Rodeo Farewell

Guess the guitar: As the Houston Rodeo rides on, can you match the superstars and their musical instruments?

The 82nd edition of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is in the record books, but as we say an official adios, we take a close-up look at the guitars that made such beautiful music.

Photographers Michelle Watson and Chinh Phan snapped some of the musical instruments strummed by some of music's biggest names. Can you match the guitar and singer?

We'll offer a hint, with the answer on the next slide.
