Danielle Bradbery will be in Indy this weekend to sing the National Anthem during NASCAR pre-race ceremonies at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway!

Joining Bradbery to pay tribute to America and sing other patriotic songs will be Big Machine artists Payton Smith and Callista Clark. 

“Songs saluting America are an important and traditional part of the pre-race ceremonies at every race at the Speedway,” IMS President J. Douglas Boles said. “We know our loyal fans will appreciate and enjoy the renditions by talented performers such as Danielle, Payton and Callista.”

Scott Borchetta said he knows how stressful a performance like this can be and asked Bradbery when she phoned in to 97.1 HANK FM how she prepares for it. “The pressure’s on!” Danielle responded. “[The National Anthem is&#93 a song that obviously you cannot mess up the words and you cannot forget your words. So for me, I just keep singing it. I hum it when I’m at the grocery store or I’m doing something around my apartment. I’m constantly singing it over and over and over again before I have an event like this…”

You’re going to do GREAT, girl! We can’t wait to welcome you back to Indy!
