Outshyne’s lead singer Waylon Owings will also perform the national anthem for the Bojangles’ Southern 500.
“We’re thrilled to have Outshyne for our pre-race concert and have lead singer Waylon Owings perform the national anthem for the Bojangles’ Southern 500,” Darlington president Chris Browning said. “Outshyne is making a name for themselves and have been moving up the charts quickly. It’s great to see a popular regional group, from South Carolina having success in the country music industry and having them perform at Darlington for our race will be special for our fans.”
“This is such a privilege to sing the national anthem and have our band Outshyne perform a pre-race concert at Darlington Raceway,” said Owings. “Being from South Carolina, I know all too well the tradition of the racetrack and the history it brings to NASCAR. We hope all of our fans will purchase a ticket to the race and see us perform at South Carolina’s largest attended professional sporting event.”
