Hank Williams Jr. to Perform Bristol Motor Speedway Pre-Race Show Presented by the NRA
Intensity tends to get turned up a notch when all the rowdy friends show up at Bristol Motor Speedway in August, and it is just got a little rowdier.
Guests at the Last Great Colosseum do not have to wait for the green flag to drop on the IRWIN Tools Night Race for rollicking good time; August 24 the tone is set early with powerhouse performer Hank Williams, Jr., rocking the pre-race concert presented by the NRA.
"Hank Williams Jr. is an icon in both music and Southern culture," said BMS General Manager Jerry Caldwell. "Featuring a legendary artist of this caliber makes perfect sense when you consider that a similar description is appropriate for Bristol Motor Speedway - a one-of-a-kind facility immersed in the history of motor sports but always looking for new ways to enhance the experience both on and off the track."
With an array of familiar hits, the Grammy-award winning artist is primed to excite the crowd before one of NASCAR's most-anticipated events.
"Tennessee is home and NASCAR fans are my fans!, says Hank Williams Jr. "This show is going to be a fun one. As a supporter of the NRA, I am proud to be performing on their stage and showing Bristol Motor Speedway fans how Bocephus boogie-woogies."
