NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Nashville Stampede, Music City’s first-ever professional bull riding team, has debuted the team’s new anthem, “Stampede,” written and recorded by Sony Music Publishing’s country music singer and songwriter Brice Long.
“Stampede” is available now wherever digital music is streamed and sold.
Long, a veteran songwriter for more than 25 years, has had more than 100 of his songs recorded, including by such prolific artists as Garth Brooks, George Strait, Chris Stapleton, Hank Williams Jr. and many more.
Long’s songwriting hits include the #1 singles “Heartache On The Dance Floor” by Jon Pardi and “Nothing On But The Radio” by Gary Allan, along with Randy Houser’s “Like a Cowboy,” which garnered Long a CMA nomination for Song of the Year.
“Stampede” was created at the request of the team’s Head Coach Justin McBride, the two-time PBR World Champion strongly believes every sports team needs its own song. McBride chose Long to write and perform the song because he was confident the musician, who had written for him in the past, could bring his vision to life and correctly communicate the team’s values.
Long is the sole writer on the track, and in McBride’s words, “I know it would be good; I just didn’t know it would be that cool.”
The Nashville Stampede is one of eight founding teams for the groundbreaking PBR (Professional Bull Riders) Team Series, which transforms the individual sport of bull riding into one where riders compete as teams in head-to-head games. The season will conclude in Las Vegas on Nov. 4-6, when the teams will go head-to-head in the PBR Team Series Championship, vying to be crowned the Team Series World Champions.
