This is kind of hard to do in Photoshop. Illustrator would be a better choice for this effect.

Here, I just created the text, duplicated, and rastorized type and layer style. Then I used guidelines and the morph feature in Free Transform to make the curvature.

Not perfect but close.

Create your text, turn it to Smart Object and apply warp transform with Arc Lower Preset.
Later you can switch to Custom warp mode and tweak it manually.

Thanks SCTRWD, I had tried this without the smart object and it did not work well. Using the smart object, it worked much better.
