“Welcoming a concert of this magnitude will truly elevate The American to new levels,” said Teton Ridge Sports Executive Vice President, Ellen Newberg. “Treating fans to a live performance by globally recognized powerhouses Tim McGraw and Faith Hill will add first-class entertainment to an already extraordinary weekend at The Crown Jewel of Rodeo™. Teton Ridge’s vision is to usher in a new era of rodeo with a steadfast commitment to the competitors while engaging broader audiences with innovative programming, live music and welcoming truly iconic names in the entertainment and western industries in order to grow the sport.”
McGraw and Hill will perform live ahead of the final round on Championship Sunday.
The American is described as “a true open competition format bringing together top professional rodeo athletes and honest, hardworking cowboys and cowgirls in a winner-take-all showdown, meant to crown the finest talent the world has to offer.”
The event will feature competitors in all eight rodeo disciplines: barrel racing, breakaway roping, steer wrestling, team roping (heading and heeling), tie down roping, bareback riding, saddle bronc riding and bull riding. Semifinals will be held the week prior to the event.
Each qualifier who makes it to the 2022 finals will be eligible for their discipline’s $100,000 prize money and will also have their shot at the bonus millions. For the first time in the event’s history, women’s breakaway ropers will also be eligible for the $2 million added bonus.
In a landmark partnership between Teton Ridge and PBR (Professional Bull Riders), the weekend will additionally feature the 2022 PBR Global Cup USA on Saturday, March 5. The 2022 PBR Global Cup USA will feature five nations and six teams battling it out for national pride and the title of “Toughest Nation on Dirt.” Teams from Australia, Brazil, Canada and Mexico will attempt to upset host nation Team USA, which will be represented by Team Eagles and all Native American Team Wolves.
The PBR Global Cup, first held in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in 2017, debuted in the United States in Texas at AT&T Stadium in 2019. Team USA made history at the most recent iteration of the event in 2020, becoming the first nation to win the international team event on home soil. The Eagles contingent was led by 2016 PBR World Champion and Dallas resident Cooper Davis who is an anticipated front-runner to once again represent his home nation.
The legendary weekend of western sports and entertainment gets underway on Saturday, March 5 with the 2022 PBR Global Cup USA at 5:45 p.m. CST and then the nonstop rodeo action at The American begins at 12 p.m. CST on Sunday, March 6.
