Trace Adkins to Perform National Anthem at Daytona 500


Trace Adkins will perform the National Anthem prior to the start of the 64th running of the Daytona 500 on Sunday, Feb 20 (FOX, FOX Deportes, MRN Radio and SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

Adkins will present his rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner in front of a sold out crowd for the Daytona 500. The season opener for the NASCAR Cup Series, which will feature NASCAR’s anticipated ‘Next Gen’ car, gets underway at 2:30pm (EST).

Luke Combs will return to perform at the pre-race concert for the second year in a row.

In his 25-year career in Country music, Adkins has sold over 11 million albums, charted more than 20 singles, earned numerous awards and multiple Grammy nominations. A Grand Ole Opry member for nearly two decades, the Louisiana native is known for dynamic baritone and fiery, always-memorable live performances, and has expanded his Country career to include film and TV acting.

Launching his headline “The Way I Wanna Go Tour” this spring, Adkins will also host Season 3 of Ultimate Cowboy Showdown premiering in April on INSP plus star in FOX’s new drama series, Monarch, expected to premiere in the fall.

The tour will make stops in Ohio on April 23rd at the Midland Theatre in Newark; on April 24th at The Ritz Theatre in Tiffin and on April 25 at Packard Music Hall in Warren.
