Womack, 58, said the Cowboys for Christ service was open to all who found themselves at the fair on a sunny Sunday morning.
“We go to livestock fairs, livestock shows and rodeos,” Womack told the crowd of about 50 people gathered.
“It doesn't matter whether you're into cattle, sheep or chickens — we're bringing the gospel to you.”
