Bull rider Bonner Bolton is trading the cowboy life for a go at winning this year's season of ABC's Dancing With The Stars!

Of course, success hasn't come easily for the 29-year-old. Just over a year ago, Bolton suffered a near-death accident after breaking his neck during the Professional Bull Riders competition. It took a long time for the Texan to recover, but he's back and better than ever.

In fact, Bolton's comeback has included a hefty number of modeling gigs and TV appearances. Just four months after his accident, Bolton signed with IMG Models, the same agency that represents stars including Gigi and Bella Hadid, Gisele Bündchen and Kate Moss.

This week, Fox News and Good Morning America featured the bull riding hunk on their shows to discuss his latest DWTS debut.

"After I said yes I thought, 'Man I kind of took on Mount Everest to do this,' so I might be more nervous than climbing on a bull ride," he told GMA, adding, "I'm excited."

Dancing with the Stars season 24 premieres March 20 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
