The Band Perry Plans For NASCAR Race
The Band Perry will perform prior to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship race on Nov. 20. The band will be featured in a pre-race show, which airs on on NBC. The Ford EcoBoost 400 championship race will be broadcast in 185 countries and territories on NBC, MRN and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. The race will take place in Homestead-Miami Speedway in Florida.
“We are thrilled to have The Band Perry performing in what will be an exciting day at Homestead-Miami Speedway, which will be capped off with the Ford EcoBoost 400 championship race on Sunday,” said Homestead-Miami Speedway President Matthew Becherer. “The Band Perry has become a household name in country music, and having them kick off the Sprint Cup Series championship race with a pre-race concert will be an electrifying experience for NASCAR and all of our fans. We can’t wait to see the show they put on in November.”

Darryl Worley will be the celebrity guest on the Santa Train when it makes its 74th journey on Nov. 19. He will accompany Santa and event sponsors CSX, Dignity U Wear, Food City and the Kingsport Chamber of Commerce on the 110-mile trek.

“I’m honored to accompany the Santa Train as the celebrity guest this year,” Worley said. “The opportunity to give back and to be a part of a 74-year-old holiday tradition is one that I couldn’t pass up, and I look forward to being a part of it.”
Ray Stevens Announces Golf Event
Ray Stevens has announced his first “Ray Stevens Charity Golf Classic,” set for Oct. 7 and 8 at the Temple Hills Country Club in Franklin, Tennessee. A full concert by Stevens and special guests will take place on the evening of the 7th, followed by an 18-hole golf scramble on the 8th. The event benefits GIFT (Giving in Faith Together), Augie’s Quest (ALS) and the ClubCorp Employee Partners Care Foundation.
“I’m looking forward to seeing lots of friends at my Charity Golf Tournament at Temple Hills in a few weeks. It should be fun doing a show in town,” says Stevens. “The concert is no problem but the Davidson County Public Safety Department won’t allow me to tee off within 100 yards of a highway. The folks in my foursome all dress like baseball catchers.”
