Lady Antebellum to Perform at 2017 Daytona 500
Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood of Lady Antebellum will perform during the pre-race show at the 2017 Daytona 500, set to take place at the end of February.
The 59th annual Daytona 500 will officially kick off the 2017 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season, on Feb. 26. NASCAR and Daytona International Speedway have announced Lady A's involvement in this year's pre-race show, which will be the trio's third appearance at Daytona International Speedway events. Previously, they've performed at the Daytona 500 pre-race concert in 2008 and at 2016's inaugural Country 500 Music Festival.
“’The Great American Race’ will have one of today’s great American country music acts front and center for our fans to enjoy,” says Daytona International Speedway President Chip Wile in a press release. “Lady Antebellum continue a long-standing DIS tradition of attracting major stars from the world of entertainment to the ’World Center of Racing’ and the Daytona 500.”
All race fans who purchase UNOH Fanzone / Pre-Race access for the Daytona 500 will be able to see Lady A's pre-race show as well as driver introductions; a limited number of ticket packages -- designed around the trio's presence -- are available starting at $239. For more information on tickets and VIP packages, call 1-800-PITSHOP or visit the Daytona 500's official website.
Lady Antebellum recently announced their sixth studio album, Heart Break, which will be released on June 9. Its first single, "You Look Good," involves an instrument they've never used before: horns.
“The energy they brought to this song is really fun," says Haywood, "and was validation for all three of us that it had to be our first single back."
Lady A will head out on their You Look Good World Tour in May. The trek includes more than 65 shows in six countries.
