Lecile Harris is a rodeo legend. More than 50 years of clowning have made his bullfighting style and hilarious routines the model for clowns across the rodeo circuit. A four-time PRCA Clown of the Year, inducted into the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame in 2007, Lecile isn't above getting stuck butt-first in a trashcan after a bull knocks him over a fence.
But his life hasn't all been goofing off. Lecile was named Most Valuable Athlete in high school, earned a degree in animal husbandry from the University of Tennessee at Martin, and in the 50s and 60s, was a drummer for the Capris, the Echoes and the Mayos, and played with Jerry Lee Lewis and Carl Perkins as a staff musician for Hi Recording and Sun Recording in Memphis.
Lecile is married to Ethel, a girl he met at a dance, and they have three grown-up kids together. He's been in several movies and five seasons of the TV series Hee Haw. Lecile loves Pink Floyd and the Eagles. When he retires from rodeo, he plans to play lots of golf - and maybe host a TV show about food.
