Joining in Darlington Raceway’s celebration of the early 1970’s during its Labor Day weekend events, will be country music legend Tanya Tucker, who will perform the National Anthem for the Bojangles’ Southern 500 on Sept. 6th.
Tucker, a longtime Nashville recording artist, will sing the Star-Spangled Banner live on NBC.
“We are excited to have country music icon Tanya Tucker perform our National Anthem for the Bojangles’ Southern 500,” track President Chip Wile said. “Tanya Tucker has been a mainstay in Nashville since the early 1970’s. Her rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner will be a can’t-miss for our great race fans.”
Tucker’s anthem performance adds yet another element to an already exciting 1970’s-style pre-race. She will join legendary rock band Grand Funk Railroad, who will be performing the pre-race concert for the 66th running of the Bojangles’ Southern 500.
