LEBANON, Tenn. — Nashville Superspeedway has announced an exceptional lineup of national anthem singers for the Ally 400 NASCAR race weekend (June 28-30) as celebrated artists Sierra Ferrell, Jessica Nixon and Renee Blair will help bring the best of Music City to the track by performing “The Star-Spangled Banner” for the NASCAR faithful. 

“We’re honored to welcome these incredible national anthem singers for our three races, and their talents truly reflect the heart and soul of Music City,” Nashville Superspeedway general manager Matt Greci said. “They will help showcase the entertainment culture that makes Nashville so special, and their performances will set the perfect tone while celebrating both our nation’s spirit and the unique heritage of Music City.”

One of the brightest young luminaries in roots music today, Ferrell (Ally 400) brings a dose of beautifully strange magic to everything she touches. Since the arrival of Long Time Coming (her acclaimed debut LP for Rounder Records), the West Virginia-born singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist earned the Emerging Act of the Year prize at the Americana Honors & Awards, collaborated with the likes of Margo Price, the Black Keys, Shakey Graves, Zach Bryan, Diplo and Old Crow Medicine Show, and enchanted audiences all over North America and Europe with her high-spirited and dazzling live performances.

Her new album Trail of Flowers (Rounder Records) was produced by Eddie Spear and Gary Paczosa and debuted in the top spot on Billboard’s Emerging Artists, Heatseekers and Tastemakers charts in March. 

If you have been to any Nashville songwriters in the round events, you have likely heard singer/songwriter Nixon (Tennessee Lottery 250). A Tennessee native, Nixon began singing at age 4 and was writing by the time she was 14. After earning a doctorate in pharmacy, she moved to Nashville, where she had the opportunity to open for such acts as Aaron Tippin, Dustin Lynch and Shenandoah. Her first Nashville project was produced by her mentor and friend Linda Davis. She has collaborated with some of Nashville’s finest musicians and songwriters, including Lady A’s Hillary Scott.

With over 50 million streams under her belt, Blair (Rackley Roofing 200), an ACM and CMA Award nominee, is just getting started. Shew grew up in St. Louis, and at 15, her passion and pursuit for country music brought her to Nashville. She recently gained significant recognition for helping pen the certified platinum and No. 1 single “Wait in the Truck” performed by Hardy and Lainey Wilson. She has toured with Willie Nelson, performed at dive bars and the Ryman Auditorium, and sung at Stagecoach with Hardy. The debut single “Holy Cowboy” off her 2024 album Hillbetty became a viral sensation.
