Twenty-five years ago, the newly formed PBR (Professional Bull Riders) bestowed its first world title to Adriano Moraes.  Now, 11 years after his retirement as a professional bull rider, the three-time world champion (1994,2001,2006), is coming back to celebrate the silver anniversary of his first championship. 


What Adriano did not expect was to watch his son Antonio, a rising star in country music, sing the national anthem.  When asked about his son’s upcoming performance on November 8th, he just shook his head.  “To watch my son realizing his dreams at the same event that is celebrating the anniversary of mine is a gift beyond words.” 


Antonio released his eponymous EP on September 5th.  The first single from the EP, ‘Let It Ride’, is a song Antonio co-wrote as a tribute to his father, who inspired his son to chase his dreams.  “Watching my dad’s dedication to be the best has been my lifelong inspiration and motivation.  My dad’s not just my role model.  He’s my hero.” 


Father and son will team up together at the Western Sports Foundation’s charity clay shoot on November 7th.  It will be held at the Clark County Shooting Complex.  The competition begins at 9:00 am.  All proceeds will go to the Rider Relief Fund and The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. 


You can find Antonio’s music on all streaming outlets.  To learn more about him, go to
