One of the biggest names in country music will crank things up in the heart of NASCAR country when Hunter Hayes gets fans revved up for the Bank of America 500 on Saturday, Oct. 10, at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

The multi-talented singer, songwriter and instrumentalist will take the stage for a 60-minute set, including smash hits like his GRAMMY-nominated "Wanted," "I Want Crazy" and "Invisible," among other fan favorites like "Storm Warning," "Somebody's Heartbreak" and current single, "21."

"I'm a huge gearhead, and I know Charlotte Motor Speedway is the heart of NASCAR country, so I can't wait to get there and play some music for all of the racing fans there," Hayes said. "It's going to be electric."

Hayes topped the charts with both his self-titled debut album and second album, Storyline. The prolific talent played every instrument on his first album, also co-writing every song and co-producing both albums. In the short span of four years, Hayes has crisscrossed the nation headlining five tours and performing alongside country music greats like Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood and Lady Antebellum. He introduced fans to even more new music this summer with the bold streaming and digital release of "21" and a slate of other new songs.

A five-time GRAMMY-nominated performer, Hayes earned the Country Music Association's "New Artist of the Year" title in 2012, as well as numerous awards and nominations from the Academy of Country Music, CMT Music Awards, BMI Awards, American Country Awards, Billboard Touring Awards, Billboard Music Awards, People's Choice Awards, Teen Choice Awards and many others.

With weekend packages starting at just $99, fans can catch all the fun of Bojangles' Pole Night and the Southern Slam 150 on Thursday, Oct. 8; the Drive for the Cure 300 presented by Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina on Friday, Oct. 9; and the Bank of America 500 on Saturday, Oct. 10.
