Sam Hunt Headlining Indy 500 Race Concert
Sam Hunt is set to headline the Firestone Legends Day Concert ahead of the 102nd Indianapolis 500 this May. The "Body Like a Back Road" singer will perform on May 26 at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Hunt's not the only country star to be in the spotlight that day. Ahead of the race, Canaan Smith and Filmore will open the concert, which starts at 3:30PM and sits inside Turn 4 of the IMS oval. Tickets are currently on sale via IMS.com.
The 102nd Indianapolis 500 presented by PennGrade Motor Oil will be held on Sunday, May 27.
"The addition of Sam Hunt to our race weekend concert lineup will help to make IMS the concert capital of the world on Memorial Day weekend," IMS President J. Douglas Boles says in a press release. "Sam has emerged as one of the biggest superstars in country music with his chart-topping hits, and the Firestone Legends Day Concert will once again prove to be a great way to celebrate race weekend with one of hottest acts in music!"
Hunt is keeping a busy concert calendar this year. After headlining a night of Luke Bryan's annual Crash My Playa Festival in Mexico in January, he announced that he will be curating a festival of his own in April. Hunt will lead back-to-back nights of the inaugural Nashional Music Festival, a multi-genre event that will also feature Brothers Osborne and Lanco. The festival is set to take place at Nashville's Bicentennial Capitol Mall on April 20-21.
In June, he's headlining the 2018 Taste of Country Music Festival in New York.
