Sheryl Crow, Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, Thomas Rhett, Brantley Gilbert, Justin Moore and Brett Young, Carly Pearce, Mike Eli of the Eli Young Band, Danielle Bradbery, Abbey Cone, Heath Sanders, Noah Schnacky, Avenue Beat, Dan Smalley, and Payton Smith are all joining forces for a moving rendition of the National Anthem this Sunday (May 24) during the NBC broadcast of Indy 500 Special: Back Home Again at 2 p.m. ET. This year’s race, originally slated for May 24, was rescheduled for Aug. 23 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Because of social distancing guidelines, each artist recorded their part of “The Star-Spangled Banner,” with producer Julian Raymond and BMLG President/CEO Scott Borchetta co-producing the clip.
The special 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 Anthem.
The Nashville-based 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-hosted concert event inside the track.
