Country Artist Granger Smith to Headline Talladega Superspeedway’s Saturday Night Infield Concert, April 27

TALLADEGA, Ala. – Country music chart-topper Granger Smith is set to headline Talladega Superspeedway’s traditional Saturday Night Infield Concert on April 27, during the track’s spring tripleheader weekend.
Admission to the Saturday Night Infield Concert, located at the intersection of Eastaboga and Talladega Blvds., is FREE to all infield guests and anyone who purchases a ticket to the GEICO 500 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race on Sunday, April 28.  
Smith has amassed a massive and rabid audience known as the “Yee Yee Nation” over the course of his ground-breaking career. Flagship artist on BBR Music Group’s Wheelhouse Records, the born and raised Texan broke onto the national scene with debut album Remington. The album skyrocketed to No. 1 on the iTunes country albums chart, with lead single “Backroad Song” hitting the No. 1 spot on the Billboard charts. He was awarded a BMI Country Award for writing, producing, publishing and performing the hit song and was nominated as Best New Country Artist for the 2017 iHeartRadio Awards.
Smith released his current album When the Good guys Win, in 2017 and it soared to No. 2 on the Billboard chart. The album spawned the Top 12 hit “Happens Like That” and newly-released single “You’re In It.” He is currently headlining his nationwide “Don’t Tread On Me” tour and has toured and performed with top-country artists such as Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Garth Brooks and more.
The Saturday Night Infield Concert festivities start at 7 p.m. CDT, which kicks off just hours after the conclusion of the MoneyLion 300 NASCAR Xfinity Series event (noon CDT) and qualifying for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series’ GEICO 500. The GEICO 500 is set to get the green flag on Sunday, April 28, at 1 p.m. CDT.

About Talladega Superspeedway
Talladega Superspeedway – which will celebrate its 50th anniversary this year – is the most competitive race track on the NASCAR schedule (record 88 lead changes in 188 laps), the highest-banked (33 degrees) and the longest (2.66 miles) as well as the most fun and fan-friendly. Talladega offers something for everyone, including hundreds of acres of free camping, amazing kids tickets and college student prices, along with special offers for military members, first responders, teachers and educators. The historic venue, which opened in 1969, is deemed NASCAR’s “Party Capital” thanks to the track’s infamous infield, the traditional Saturday Night Infield Concert on event weekends and renowned Talladega Blvd., home of the “Big One on the Blvd.” party. It’s the site of the most comfortable seats in motorsports, large ISM Vision HD video boards lining the frontstretch and numerous pre-race activities for fans on race day, including special Kids VIP opportunities. For ticket information, visit www.talladegasuperspeedway.com or call 855-518-RACE (7223).
The track, along with its parent company, International Speedway Corporation, announced last year Transformation – The Talladega Superspeedway Infield Project presented by Graybar. The approximate $50 million redevelopment endeavor is part of ISC’s long-term capital allocation plan and reinvestment into its major motorsports complexes. The project, highlighted by a one-of-a-kind Talladega Garage Experience, will feature “up-close” access, interactive attractions and enhanced amenities for fans, sponsors, teams and stakeholders in the iconic Talladega infield. Full completion of the modernized project is scheduled for October 2019. Fans can learn more about the project and view the progress 24/7 via the construction cam by visiting www.talladegasuperspeedway.com/transformation.
