The PBR rode through Nashville, this weekend, bringing thrills and spills to Bridgestone Arena.  The PBR brings non-stop action and entertainment, with a family-friendly Rodeo vibe, to their Built Ford Tough Series.  It’s a must-see event, for all ages.  World class entertainer Flint Rasmussen, kept the crowd buzzing, with his sarcastic and quirky brand of humor.  He bounded into the stands, shaking hands with a young, “best dressed” child and did the moonwalk to Michael Jackson between rides.

The crowd was super excited to see reigning World Champ, JB Mauney.  But, his weekend was cut short, on his first ride.  JB was bucked off early and left limping and grimacing in pain, after an apparent groin or leg injury.  That did not dampen the fervor or intensity of the other riders.
