While the RodeoHouston lineup always has something to suit almost any popular musical taste (sorry jazz/classical fans!), country artists still reign supreme when it comes to ticket prices. That's according to ticket website Vivid Seats, which notes that Australian country music superstar Keith Urban has the Rodeo's highest median resale ticket price at $100.  

R&B crooner Usher is right behind Urban at $99, while Voice judge Adam Levine and Maroon 5 are tied for third at $90 with the chicken fried country stylings of Zac Brown Band.

Rodeo goers don't seem to have much interest in the more legendary acts the Rodeo has secured. Reba comes in at a disappointing 13th ($60 median), and REO Speedwagon can't fight the feeling of being in last place at a median price of only $30. 

While Urban's tickets may seem expensive, Vivid Seats's data indicates Houstonians are getting a deal when they pony up to see Nicole Kidman's husband perform. Tickets for his regular tour have a $150 median price, so Houstonians are saving $50 per seat (albeit for a shorter show). Rodeo goers also get to see bull riding, roping and mutton busting, which aren't, one assumes, typically parts of Urban's performance.  

Tickets to see Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Brad Paisley at the Rodeo are even farther below the median prices of their respective tours. Paisley's regular tickets clock it at $134 on tour, but the median price of his Houston Rodeo show is only $41.
