Five-time American Music Award winner Kane Brown will serve as the grand marshal for the Ally 400 NASCAR Cup Series race at Nashville Superspeedway on Sunday, June 26.
Brown, known for chart-topping hits “One Mississippi,” “Heaven,” “What Ifs,” “Homesick,” and more, will give NASCAR’s top drivers the command to start their engines before the race.
“We can’t wait to welcome Kane Brown to Nashville Superspeedway next month as part of our celebration around the Ally 400,” says Erik Moses, Nashville Superspeedway’s President. “As Middle Tennessee’s home for NASCAR racing and entertainment, we are thrilled to be able to host America’s top drivers and top entertainers at the same time! We look forward to ensuring that Kane experiences the best that #NASHCAR has to offer this June!”
The Chattanooga, Tennessee native first made history in October 2017 as the first artist to lead all five of Billboard’s main country charts simultaneously, and has gone on to amass seven No. 1 hits at country radio.
One of Brown’s most impactful collaborations is “Famous Friends” with Chris Young, which became Billboard’s 2021 year-end No. 1 Country Airplay Song and remained in the top five of Billboard’s airplay chart for 15 weeks. Last June, he and Young won Collaborative Video of the Year at the 2021 CMT Music Awards.
Platinum-selling artist and reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year Luke Combs served as the grand marshal for the inaugural Ally 400 in 2021.
