Brickyard 400 Revs Up Country Music

The Brickyard 400 NASCAR race this Sunday (July 31) will be countrified, in a big way. Rascal Flatts will sing the national anthem and Reba McEntire adds “America the Beautiful.”

If that's not enough, The Band Perry, Justin Moore and Brantley Gilbert also will be performing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

Music Row insiders know all these artists belong to the same label, Big Machine Records Group, home to Taylor Swift (who will NOT be in Indy this weekend).

Icing on the cake for the record label—its chief, Scott Borchetta, a race car driver himself, will wave the green flag.
