The Cordish Companies, Texas Rangers and Professional Bull Riders (PBR) announced today the flagship PBR country bar in the United States will open in Texas Live! in Arlington in 2018. The announcement was made at AT&T Stadium, where PBR's Frontier Communications Iron Cowboy event will take place on Saturday for the eighth consecutive year.

The PBR country bar will join the likes of Lockhart Smokehouse, Revolver Brewery, Guy Fieri and Rangers Republic in anchoring the $250 million world-class dining, entertainment and hospitality district being developed in partnership between The Cordish Companies, Texas Rangers and City of Arlington.

"Since the first PBR country bar launched in 2008, the concept has been a phenomenal success and will soon expand to 10 locations nationwide," said Sean Gleason, CEO of PBR. "PBR country bars provide a strong daily brand presence for the sport in a fun, lifestyle venue where our fans can come out and release their inner cowboy. We are thrilled to expand our partnership with The Cordish Companies and now the Texas Rangers and bring our flagship PBR country bar to the spectacular new Texas Live!"

The country's flagship PBR will exceed 1,500-capacity and will feature a 7,000 square foot balcony overlooking Arlington Backyard, a 5,000 capacity event pavilion that will welcome the best national, regional and local music talent. The PBR country bar will be located on the second floor above Lockhart Smokehouse which was announced last week by the Texas Rangers and The Cordish Companies. Lockhart Smokehouse, an iconic Texas barbecue restaurant, was founded on rich family traditions deeply rooted in Texas for more than a century.
