The weekend’s headlining event is the PBR’s Last Cowboy Standing. Taking place outside at the MGM Resorts Village, this two-day event presents the Top 50 bull riders in the world – the largest field of any PBR event – competing in round after round of intense 8 second battles until one bull rider remains as the cowboy to ride the most bulls consecutively. A total purse of $250,000 is up for grabs, with the winner taking home a guaranteed $180,000, including the $100,000 Bad Boy Mowers Bonus. The competition takes place at 8 p.m. Friday, May 23 and 6 p.m. Saturday, May 24.

As the second of four “PBR Majors” in 2015, the Last Cowboy Standing event will air as a two-hour broadcast on CBS Sunday, May 24th at 1 p.m. ET.

The Monster Energy Cowboy Festival also will have Bikini Bull Riding for the ladies and Topless Bull Riding for the men. Action-sports enthusiasts will enjoy the extreme wakeboarders at the Step Up Rail Jam and everyone will be entertained by the high-flying acrobatics of the premier canine aquatics competition, the Dock Dogs.

Add pool parties, after-parties, mechanical bull riding and frothy drinks with a cowboy twist, and Cowboy Spring Break-goers will have a Memorial Day weekend experience like no other.

“Cowboy Spring Break has been a long-time in the making and we have an exceptional lineup of entertainment to surround one of PBR’s most popular events,” PBR COO Sean Gleason said. “I know that our cowboy athletes will be ready to enjoy some fun-in-the-sun with PBR fans and western-lifestyle enthusiasts.”

Gary Allan Releases “Hangover Tonight” Lyric Video

Gary Allan’s new single “Hangover Tonight” is impacting radio stations across the nation. The clever and catchy tune is perfectly suited to Allan’s smoldering vocals and sexy swagger, which is enhanced when Chris Stapelton’s raw and powerful background vocals are added into the mix.

The song was co-produced by Allan and Greg Droman and co-written by Allan, Chris Stapleton, Jesse Frasure and Cary Barlowe. “Hangover Tonight” is the lead single from Allan’s forthcoming album due on MCA Nashville later this year. It will be the follow-up to Allan’s critically acclaimed, Billboard 200 Chart Topping album, Set You Free.

“I’m super excited about this single going to radio. I feel like this is the fourth or fifth time I’ve reinvented myself, or tried to push myself to do different things. I feel like I have pushed myself into a very comfortable place because it is kind of 50’s and 60’s Motown. It reminds me of when I did “Runaway” and things like that. So it was a very easy thing for me to do. I was in rockabilly bands my whole life, and to me it was just a throwback to my youth writing with these guys. It was a lot of fun.”

The song is also quickly becoming a fan favorite during Allan’s live shows. Night after night, they respond enthusiastically, dancing and singing along to the chorus.

The Professional Bull Riders (PBR) will “ride” and the musicians will “rock” so the fans can “party” during the PBR Cowboy Spring Break Festival scheduled Memorial Day Weekend at the MGM Resorts Village in Las Vegas featuring Gary Allan and The Band Perry. Additional artists will be added in the coming weeks.

For three days fans can enjoy the concerts, on-site pool parties, mechanical bull riding, frothy drinks, bull rider meet-and-greets, interactive displays, shopping and a host of other activities.

“Cowboy Spring Break has been a long-time in the making and we have an exceptional line-up of entertainment to surround one of PBR’s most popular events, The Last Cowboy Standing” PBR COO Sean Gleason said. “It’s the last PBR event before the summer break and I know that our cowboy athletes will be ready to enjoy some fun-in-the-sun with PBR fans and western lifestyle enthusiasts.”

The celebration will be centered on one of the PBR’s most popular and roughest event formats, the Last Cowboy Standing. The Top 50 bull riders in the world will compete Friday and Saturday in round after round of competition. If they make the 8-second buzzer, they advance. If they come up short, they’re done. The battle continues until one athlete remains and becomes the “Last Cowboy Standing,” pocketing at least $180,000 as the winner. The event’s total purse is $250,000.

The Last Cowboy Standing will be held at the MGM Resorts Village and is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. Friday, May 22nd and at 6 p.m. Saturday, May 23rd. Gary Allan will rock the house following Saturday night’s Round 2 action and The Band Perry will close the weekend’s festivities on Sunday.

The Last Cowboy Standing is the second PBR Major and will be broadcast on CBS.
