Sam Hunt to perform at NASCAR Awards

Multi-platinum-selling, award-winning artist Sam Hunt will perform at the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Awards on Dec. 5 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Hunt is the latest country star to join the festivities when NASCAR makes it inaugural visit to Music City next month for Champion’s Week. Previously, it was announced that Cassadee Pope will be the event co-host alongside NASCAR on NBC’s Rutledge Wood for the highly anticipated year-end awards.

Hunt recently released a new song, “Kinfolks,” a single that follows his Grammy-nominated, triple-platinum selling debut album, Montevallo, which topped the Billboard Country Albums Chart in its first week and is the best-selling debut album since 2011 for a country artist. The single “Body Like A Back Road” was No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart for 27 consecutive weeks — setting a new record for most weeks atop the 59-year-old chart.

Music City will play host to NASCAR Champion’s Week, a celebration filled with more fan interactions than ever before, music, race cars, driver appearances and much more from Dec. 3-5.

Among the additional events of the week are: NASCAR Night at the Opry Hosted by PNC Bank, Burnouts on Broadway and Fan Fest. Click here for additional info on those events and to purchase your tickets today.
