On Saturday (March 25), the front man of the Grammy-winning country band and his wife Shelly went in on the $330,000 purchase of the Junior Market Reserve Grand Champion Steer.

The steer was raised by 16-year-old Future Farmers of America member, Stock Martin from Hereford, Texas. The Browns share will share the ownership with Victoria and Parker Johnson, and Amber and Steve Mostyn.
