Blake Shelton, the five-time CMA Male Vocalist of the Year who has accumulated more than 13 million album sales over his illustrious career, will perform a pre-race concert for the NASCAR All-Star Race on Sunday, May 22, at Texas Motor Speedway.
Shelton will perform a full sixty (60) minute set featuring some of his biggest hits on the venue’s main racetrack. The concert will be the highlight of the pre-race activities leading into the second running of the NASCAR All-Star Race at Texas Motor Speedway (7 p.m. CT, TV: FS1, Radio: PRN, SiriusXM).
Texas Motor Speedway is offering fans premier access to enjoy the concert and the NASCAR All-Star driver introductions with the purchase of a Track Pass ticket upgrade while supplies last. While the pre-race concert is free with any race ticket, Track Pass holders will move from the grandstands to the front of the stage for the high-energy musical performance, driver introductions, and more.
Shelton added to his musical success this past December with the release of the deluxe version of his latest album, Body Language. The album featured four new tracks, including his Top 15 and climbing single, “Come Back As A Country Boy.” Body Language (Deluxe) features his Platinum-selling 28th country radio chart-topper, “Happy Anywhere” featuring Gwen Stefani.
Prior to “Happy Anywhere,” Shelton celebrated a 2x Platinum, multi-week No. 1 with “Nobody But You,” which has now reached 300 million streams. The single made its television debut on the 62nd GRAMMY Awards, where Shelton was also nominated for “Best Country Solo Performance” for his hit “God’s Country.” The 4x Platinum smash earned the 2019 CMA Award and 2020 ACM Award for “Single of the Year.” He continues to remain a force in the industry with ACM (5), AMA (3), CMA (10), CMT (11) and People’s Choice Awards (7), among many others.
He also continues to mentor future musical talents as a coach for NBC’s Emmy Award-winning television show, The Voice. He is an eight-time champion with his most recent title coming with contestant Cam Anthony in May of 2021.
“It only makes sense to have next-level talent like Blake Shelton perform for this festival of fun and part of one of the crown jewels of motorsports racing, the NASCAR All-Star Race,” said Texas Motor Speedway General Manager Rob Ramage. “We are offering a priceless experience for our fans and have countless activities planned for this festival. Keep watching our website, we will have so many other next-level fan experiences to announce. It’s going to be huge, something for everyone, and we are so excited to have this super star, Blake Shelton, perform live during our All-Star Race and festival.”
