Tanya Tucker to Perform Anthem at Bojangles’ Southern 500

Tanya Tucker CMA Fest 2004

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.

Tens of thousands of sun-kissed fans descended on Twin, Lakes, Wis., to experience the Academy of Country Music’s ‘Festival of the Year,” Country Thunder. Throughout the weekend, Country music-lovin’, cowboy boot-wearin’ attendees were treated to some of the biggest names and brightest stars in music, including megastar Luke Bryan, superstar and judge on NBC’s The Voice Blake Shelton, one of Country music’s most-respected singer/songwriters Dierks Bentley, Jerrod Niemann, Dustin Lynch, Tyler Farr, Jon Pardi and many, many more. Known for showcasing not only the biggest names of today, but also the biggest names of tomorrow, the festival featured ‘round-the-clock music from multiple stages, including The Boathouse Cabana and Electric Thunder. When attendees weren’t listening to the best Country music has to offer, they were riding a mechanical bull, eating mouth-watering vendor food, shopping, participating in interactive exhibits, riding the ferris wheel and the slingshot, zip lining, partying in the campgrounds and much more.

Plans for next year are already well underway, with festival organizers working towards an even bigger and better Country Thunder 2016. We have two words for you: Eric. Church. CMA and four-time ACM Award winner and last year’s top-selling country music artist, Eric Church, along with many more soon-to-be-announced Country superstars, will roll into Twin Lakes, Wis., July 21-24, 2016. Early-bird, four-day passes are available for $130, while supplies last. Stay tuned for even more exciting artist announcements in the coming months!

Little Big Town Cancels More Shows

Little Big Town is having to take a little more time off than they originally expected after singer Jimi Westbrook’s vocal surgery.

It is with deep regret that we must cancel an additional three weeks of shows in August due to doctors orders for Jimi…

We hope Jimi recovers quickly and fully so they can hit the road soon!!
