We got an exclusive sneak peek with designer, Torie Halbert of To the T. Interiors, of the incredible backstage set up created for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo each year. Torie, who has been a Rodeo committee member for 12 years, has been designing backstage for the show for 7 years now and she just keeps outdoing herself! Bringing elements of Houston into each of the 6 rooms backstage, she’s showcasing just how great the city is and leaving a lasting impression on the biggest music artists in the country, just before and after they hit the stage. These rooms are available to the performers to get ready before the show, unwind afterward, and receive their commemorative belt buckles, the Rodeo’s version of a trophy for playing the big stage.
