The Goat Rodeo Sessions is a 2011 collaborative album by cellist Yo-Yo Ma, fiddler Stuart Duncan, bassist Edgar Meyer and mandolin player Chris Thile, who come together to create a different kind of string quartet. This deluxe edition features an expanded version of the CD plus a DVD packed with live performances and rare glimpses inside the recording studio.  The Goat Rodeo Sessions debuted at #23 on the Billboard Top 200 chart (Yo-Yo Ma's highest debut), #1 on Billboard s Classical Crossover and Classical Overall charts.

The slang phrase "goat rodeo," refers to a chaotic event where many things must go right for the situation to work, a reference to the challenge of blending classical and bluegrass music. Yo-Yo Ma described a goat rodeo, saying, “If there were forks in the road and each time there was a fork, the right decision was made, then you get to a goat rodeo.”
