Pueblo, Colo. ― The Professional Bull Riders congratulates country music star Gary Allan, who returned to the top of the charts today with the release of his ninth studio album, "Set You Free." Allan's song "Bones," featured on the new album, is the official theme song for the 2013 Built Ford Tough Series season.
"We are extremely proud to be associated with Gary through the integration of his music in our television broadcasts and live events," PBR Chief Operating Officer Sean Gleason said. "We appreciate Gary's support of PBR and thank our fans for helping launch his new release to No. 1."
"Set You Free" currently sits in the No. 1 position on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and Billboard Top 200 Pop Chart. This is Allan's first No.1 Billboard Top 200 debut and third No. 1 debut on the Billboard Country Albums Chart.
"It has been a long while, but it feels really good," Allan said. "I would especially like to thank all of my fans and everyone at radio. I would also like to thank everyone on my team who has helped to get me to this point. This is a great feeling."
Allan has been working in partnership with the PBR for several years now, including a performance at the 2010 Iron Cowboy at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The title track from Allan's last studio album, "Get Off On The Pain," was used for the opening of PBR's television productions in 2011 and 2012. Additionally, Allan shot the music video for "Get Off On The Pain" at a BFTS event.
