Who is JB Mauney?
American professional rodeo cowboy James Burton, often known as J.B. Mauney, is an expert in bull riding. His professional riding career was mostly focused on the Professional Bull Riders (PBR), where he won the global title in 2013 and 2015. He has been actively competing in the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association since 2021. He also temporarily participated in the Championship Bull Riding (CBR) circuit, which is now defunct. He is regarded as the best bull rider of his generation.

Mauney married Lexie Wiggly in 2012 and then got divorced in 2015. He then got married to Samantha Lyne in 2016. Samantha gave birth to Mauney’s first son on January 23, 2019. From his first marriage, Mauney also has a daughter. In Mooresville, North Carolina, where Mauney had lived for most of his life, Mauney and his family continued to reside until 2019. They then spent several years in Cotulla, Texas. Late in 2020, Mauney bought a home in Stephenville, Texas, and moved there with his family in early 2022 and is currently living there.
One of three bull riders to stay on Bushwacker for the full 8 seconds over the course of the bull’s career, Mauney is one of just two bull riders to do it on the Built Ford Tough Series (BFTS), the top division of the PBR.
