It happened a week later than many Dancing with the Stars viewers were hoping, but Ty Murray was sent home this week.
And the rodeo standout seemed quite happy with that result.
“I can’t tell you how happy I am,” Murray, alongside partner Chelsie Hightower, told People after the show. “I don’t have to learn any more dances.”
That being said, the husband of Jewel is certainly glad he took a break from riding horses to grooving to the Samba for a few weeks.
“The whole reason I did this show is because it was nice for cowboys to be represented in something so pop culture, and this show did in spades,” Murray said. “For me to be able to do this is a fantastic opportunity. You don’t realize how big something like this is until you’re on a show that 25 million people watch.”
