An incredible lineup of Big Machine Label Group artists unite for a moving rendition of the National Anthem, debuting this Sunday (5/24) during the NBC broadcast of “Indy 500 Special: Back Home Again” at 2:00P ET. Superstars Sheryl CrowFlorida Georgia LineLady AntebellumThomas Rhett, Brantley Gilbert, Justin Moore, and Brett Young join voices with chart-topping acts Carly Pearce and Mike Eli of the Eli Young Band; plus Danielle Bradbery, Abbey Cone, Heath Sanders, Noah Schnacky, Avenue Beat, Dan Smalley, and Payton Smith. Adhering to social distancing guidelines, each separately recorded their part of “The Star-Spangled Banner” with GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Julian Raymond and BMLG President/CEO Scott Borchetta co-producing the complete clip. 

NBC’s Mike Tirico will narrate the program, which chronicles the 2019 race featuring an epic duel between Team Penske’s Simon Pagenaud and Andretti Autosport’s Alexander Rossi and incorporates traditional pre-race moments such as this unique performance of the National Anthem. 

The Nashville-based independent powerhouse label has a long-standing relationship with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, most notably their title sponsorship of the Big Machine Vodka 400 at the Brickyard and producing FGL Fest, a one-day Florida Georgia Line helmed concert event inside the track. 

For more than 100 years, the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race presented by Gainbridge has taken place over Memorial Day weekend. This year’s race was originally slated for May 24 but was rescheduled for August 23 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
