The biggest all-star event in sports will host a pre-race concert with one of the biggest bands in country music as Little Big Town will get the crowd revved up before the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race on Saturday, May 16.

Together since 1998, Little Big Town is comprised of a quartet of talented musicians whose vocal stylings have earned the group a GRAMMY Award and an Emmy. In addition, Little Big Town has been awarded multiple recognitions from the Country Music Association, including being named "Vocal Group of the Year" in 2012, 2013 and 2014, as well as "Single of the Year" for the smash hit "Pontoon" in 2012. The Academy of Country Music awarded Little Big Town the "Top New Vocal Group" in 2007, "Music Video of the Year" for "Tornado" in 2013 and "Vocal Group of the Year" in 2014.

Little Big Town released their most recent album "Pain Killer" in October 2014, to massive critical acclaim. The album features the No. 1, gold-certified, hit single "Day Drinking" as well as current single and fan favorite, "Girl Crush." The band was also inducted into the Grand Ole Opry as official members this past October.

"Little Big Town has a sound that's as distinctive and entertaining as the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race itself, so it's the perfect combination for a memorable Saturday night under the lights," said Marcus Smith, president and general manager of Charlotte Motor Speedway. "What better way to start the 10 Days of Thunder at Charlotte Motor Speedway and give fans even more value."
