Reba, Rascal Flatts and More Performing At Brickyard 400

Brickyard 400
For the first time ever, a record label is sponsoring a nationally televised NASCAR race. This year’s Brickyard 400, taking place on July 31 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, is being presented by Nashville’s Big Machine Records. In addition to the race, the event will feature performances by some of the label’s biggest stars, such as Rascal Flatts, Reba McEntire, The Band Perry, Justin Moore, Brantley Gilbert, and Thomas Rhett. There will also be a booth where fans can purchase their favorite artist’s merchandise, like clothing, music, and other souvenirs.
However, Big Machine Records realizes that not every fan can make it up to Indianapolis this weekend. So to include more people in the experience, they are offering free downloads on their website every day leading up to the event. A new song from one of the label’s artists will be posted each day on where fans can easily download it for free.
The following is an overview of the events happening at the Brickyard 400 event:
