Swindell, a favorite among NASCAR luminaries including 2000 All-Star Race winner Dale Earnhardt Jr., has charted seven No. 1 hits, including “Chillin’ It,” “Hope You Get Lonely Tonight,” “Ain’t Worth the Whiskey,” “Let Me See Ya Girl,” “You Should Be Here,” “Middle of a Memory,” and “Flatliner.” Additionally, Swindell’s status as one of country music’s rising stars is also solidified by his success as a No. 1 hit songwriter for performers including Luke Bryan (“Roller Coaster”), Thomas Rhett (“Get Me Some of That”) and Florida Georgia Line (“This Is How We Roll”).
“I’m pumped to be playing NASCAR’s Monster Energy All-Star Race this year,” Swindell said. “I’ve been a fan of NASCAR for so long, I can’t believe I’ll actually be part of the day’s activities. It will be great to see all my driver friends and cheer them on in person.”
The Warner Bros. Nashville artist will deliver a show-stopping performance for fans at the entrance outside of Turn 1 near Gate 8 at Charlotte Motor Speedway, adjacent to the Fan Zone. He will also co-host driver introductions.
Swindell’s travels saw the Bronwood, Georgia, native perform at Earnhardt’s retirement party at Whisky River in uptown Charlotte last December. This May, he’ll rock the pre-race festivities at 2 p.m. on May 19 with a 70-minute concert before the Monster Energy Open and the Monster Energy All-Star Race, where NASCAR’s most heralded drivers – including Chase Elliott, Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick – will clash for $1 million cash.
