Country music sensation Billy Ray Cyrus will sing the national anthem before the Jeff Byrd 500, presented by Food City.
The Jeff Byrd 500 presented by Food City takes place March 20, 2011 at Bristol Motor Speedway, in Bristol, Tennessee. The August race at Bristol, which takes places under the lights after dark, is one of the most popular races in the Sprint Cup series each year.
This is the fourth race in the NASCAR Sprint Cup series in 2011. It follows the Kobalt Tools 400 (March 6), which was won by Carl Edwards.
Billy Ray, who was born in Kentucky, has sung the national anthem many times. Here he sings the national anthem at the NFL’s Kansas City Chiefs’ home opener in 2010.
