FORT WORTH, Texas (February 21, 2022) – Ahead of the debut PBR (Professional Bull Riders) World Finals in Fort Worth, Texas, the organization today announced the talent-packed Pendleton Whisky Concert Series which will feature eight recording artists performing across three venues throughout the Metroplex from May 13-21. The star-studded roster of performers is headlined by ACM Award-nominated recording artist Danielle Bradbery and Riser House/Columbia Nashville’s multi-platinum No. 1 hitmaker Mitchell Tenpenny who will take to the stage inside Dickies Arena prior to two of the final rounds of competition for the prestigious PBR World Finals.
The 2022 PBR World Finals will buck into Fort Worth on May 13-22. The opening rounds of competition will be held May 13-15, with the action coming to a climactic end May 19-22 when the 2022 PBR World Champion will be crowned, earning the coveted gold buckle and accompanying $1 million bonus.
Bradbery and Tenpenny headline the Pendleton Whisky Concert Series. They will perform on Thursday, May 19, and Friday, May 20, respectively, inside Dickies Arena prior to the start of each evening’s round of the PBR World Finals.
Bradbery is the season four winner on The Voice whose career has blossomed since winning the reality TV show in 2013. In addition to earned multiple award nominations, she has toured across the globe with Kane Brown, Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Miranda Lambert and more.
Stepping into her own lane with sophomore album” I Don’t Believe We’ve Met,” Bradbery infused her story into her songs for the first time–penning seven of the album’s 10 tracks including “Worth It,” “Potential” and GOLD-certified “Sway.”
Tenpenny recently released an eight-song EP, Midtown Diaries EP, he produced Jordan B Schmidt. Mitchell co-wrote all the tracks including his smash “Truth About You” that he first previewed for his fans on TikTok. “You listen to the fans who listen to you,” Mitchell said about their instantaneous reaction as the song became the largest streaming debut of his career now with more than 60 million total on-demand streams. Mitchell can also be heard on the radio with Chris Young on their collaboration and ‘booming hit’ “At The End Of A Bar.”
Since the release of his debut single, “Drunk Me,” Mitchell has set new standards for breakout success in country music. The 2X Platinum-certified, No. 1 hit that has amassed over 550 million on-demand streams was taken from his introductory 2018 album, Telling All My Secrets, and earned him the best first week showing for any major label country debut LP. Since that time, the “winning” singer (the New York Times) was nominated for New Male Artist of the Year at the ACM Awards and Breakthrough Video (“Drunk Me”) at the CMT Music Awards and saw his “Alcohol You Later” and “Anything She Says” singles certified gold.
Both Bradbery and Tenpenny’s concerts will be included with the purchase of an event ticket to that evening’s round of the PBR World Finals. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at PBR.com or Ticketmaster.com or by calling PBR customer service at 1-800-732-1727.
