Featuring the rankest bulls in the southeast and the fastest equines, Bull, Bands and Barrels never fails to deliver in its promise to be three of the most exciting hours in westerns sports and entertainment.
The format is as follows: 20-30 of the best bull riders will tackle the rankest bucking bulls in the southeast, striving to make the 8-second buzzer. If a rider stays on his bull for the required 8 seconds, he gets a score and a chance to compete in the championship round. If he gets bucked off, he is finished. The cowgirls will take the dirt following the bull riding to see which of them can get the fastest time as they race around barrels in a figure 8 pattern.
Intermission will feature the nail-biting competition freestyle bull fighting. The world’s premier bull fighting competition series, will keep fans on the edge of their seats throughout intermission as these athletes take center stage to face their opponents in a true battle of man versus beast.
Following the competition, Muscadine Bloodline, a force making huge waves in country music, will take to the stage to dazzle fans with a powerfully refreshing mix of talent, passion and unfiltered authenticity. Dallas Dorsey will play as soon as doors open that evening through the start of the western sports portion of the event, followed by Blane Rudd, opening for Muscadine Bloodline.

About Bulls, Bands and Barrels (BBB)
Bulls, Bands and Barrels is a premier western competition and entertainment tour featuring bull riding, barrel racing and up and coming national artists. Bull riding is considered a standard rodeo event for a variety of organizations. The event developed strictly as a contest, as opposed to other standard rodeo events which evolved out of the necessary skills of a working cowboy. Bull riding, often referenced as the most popular of event offerings at rodeos, makes up part of the industry’s rough stock events. Barrel racing, another of the top two competitions in rodeo, is one of the most unique events in the rodeo world. While cowboys are riding spinning bulls, cowgirls are charging through the gate in a race against the clock. Barrel racing is truly one of the fastest events in rodeo. The Bulls, Bands and Barrels Tour features top level talent in each western emphasis while also providing top entertainment talent as a unique bonus for fans to enjoy.
