Professional Bull Riders has made the announcement for the Music City Knockout PBR of the Built Ford Tough Series coming August 17 & 18, 2018.

The Professional Bull Riders (PBR) has made the announcement for the Music City Knockout PBR of the Built Ford Tough Series. It will once again return to the famous Bridgestone Arena through Nashville PBR. This will be the place where the final Major will take place on the 17th of August, Friday at 7:45 pm and on the 18th of August, Saturday at 6:45 pm.

Nashville, Tennessee

The world’s top most bull riders come to Nashville during this tour. It is one of the major stops at the Music City market, which has a one of a kind format. It is a knockout round of the highest order where 35 riders battle it out for more points. Within the two days of the Nashville part of the PBR bracket style action, the riders are seeded. They take each other head on, and the one that has the best score out of the lot takes the win. Those who lose still have a second chance bracket. This allows them to get back in the competition if they can avail the chance.


The whole schedule has 26 events all over the country. The major events stop in all the major states in the US. Nashville has been the one state that has been chosen for all of the last 6 years. Since ’96, it has racked up, and it has been 19 times. This year is no different. The BFT World Finals will be held in LA where the last champion earned the most points during his entire season.


The tickets start at $19 and are being sold by the box office at the Bridgestone Arena. You can get the tickets at the website or even through their customer service department. Just call them at 800-732-1727. These are the best seats in the house, which will give you nothing less than a VIP experience of the sport. They’re going to cost you $400, but you will get an early entry, a look behind the scenes, a backstage tour, catered reception and a lot more. You will see a presentation and see the bulls that are competing. There will be an Elite Seat laynard for you, and you will also get autographs of and photographs with some of the top bull riders in the world.


With Fabiano Vieira having taken the throne off of Cooper Davis‘ head, it will be a tough competition this year. Both of these men will be battling it out to see if Davis can win back the title or if Vieira reigns supreme this year. There are going to be former world champions competing, which will make this a good competition this time around.

Television Broadcast

CBS Sports Network is going to broadcast the event on both the days. Friday night will be at 9:00 pm and Saturday night will be at 10:00 pm. The final rides will be featured on Sunday at 1:00 pm ET. Each of the rounds can be seen live on PBR Live, which is available for free. You can even watch it through the PBR LIVE app on Google Play Store and iTunes.
