Kolby Cooper headlines a country music line-up for an afternoon of free music at the Levitt

The Professional Bull Riders are in town, and Levitt Pavilion Arlington is ready with an afternoon of free music from 1 to 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 14, before that night's PBR event.

Headlining the line-up of artists is Kolby Cooper at 4:30 p.m., the Spotify star who started racking up impressive numbers just three years out of high school. After only one year online, "It Ain't Me" has almost 7 million Spotify streams, "Every Single Kiss" has topped 4.5 million, and "Fall" is hovering around 2.7 million. With the release of his newest EP, Vol. 2, comes another round of his already-signature blend of searing break-up anthems and gut-wrenchingly relatable songs of loss and growth. Cooper's ragged velvet vocals are an ideal vehicle, which he layers over rock-and-roll guitar and distinctly Texas bottom-end.

Leading up to Kolby Cooper's concert, the afternoon begins at 1 p.m. with Garrett Bradford, who exploded onto the Texas music scene this year with his debut EP, "Honkiest of Tonkers," which has received significant airplay on Texas radio. As if there wasn't enough buzz about Bradford already, his new release, "This Way of Life," was featured on the hit TV series "Yellowstone." The next day, "This Way of Life" was the most Shazammed country song in the nation, climbing up the iTunes charts where it peaked at 32 on the iTunes Country Top 40.

At 2 p.m., it's time for a taste of blues with Kerri Lick & the Good Kids. Kerri Lick is a young blues talent, gaining new fans across the southwest. She brings heart-felt lyrics and merges them with blues, soul and Americana. Last year, Lick was runner-up in the Trinity River Blues Society competition and was also a finalist in the Larry Joe Taylor songwriting competition. Her music beautifully merges captivating lyrics and deep blues and soul tones to create a fresh new sound in the blues music scene as well as Texas and Americana music. Lick has used her pandemic-induced break this year to get closer to her band, The Good Kids, and with her acoustic album, "Me & My Guitar," which she recently released.

Creed Fisher makes his way back to the Levitt stage at 3 p.m. after performing a Levitt Living Room Series livestream during the summer. Fisher is proud to be a redneck, placing his good ol' boy status at the center of his hard Texas country. His music is firmly rooted in traditional country that stretches back to the days of Hank Williams. A native of West Texas, Fisher began writing songs as a child and launched a professional music career with the single, "I'll Keep Drinkin'," in 2012, followed by his debut album, "Down Here in Texas." A second album, "Ain't Scared to Bleed," followed not much later, then a full-length album, "Rednecks Like Us."

The Levitt Cowboy Concerts are free. Seating is in socially-distanced squares on the lawn and Abram Street that can hold up to eight people. Squares are first come, first served. Concertgoers are asked to bring lawn chairs and blankets to sit on as well as their own food and beverages, including beer and wine, but no glass containers please.

Levitt Pavilion Arlington is located at 100 W. Abram St. There is free parking in lots and garages all around the pavilion. A parking map is on their website at levittpavilionarlington.org. Entrances to the lawn are near Center and South streets between the Levitt and First Baptist Church and at the corner of Abram and Pecan streets near the flagpoles. Masks must be worn to attend the concert, but can be removed inside your square to eat and drink.
