Welcome to the Ward & Hawkins Show

Andrew Ward and Buddy Hawkins surprised some when they made their first of two-straight Wrangler National Finals Rodeos together in 2020. Others were straight-up stunned when they were the ones who broke Jake Barnes and Clay Cooper’s 27-year-old NFR average record in Las Vegas last December. God might be the only one who saw superstardom—including the 2022 windfall wins at both the Lone Star Shootout and The American—included in life’s master script for the uniquely wired team of Ward and Hawkins. These guys don’t see or walk through this world the same way as the other big dogs.
