Corbin will also sing the national anthem before the race, which will feature the first four driver eliminations of the 2016 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship. Corbin’s Victory Plaza concert will begin at 11 a.m.

Corbin, a Florida native, rocketed on the country music scene in 2010 with his self-titled debut album, which included the No. 1 hits “A Little More Country Than That,” and “Roll With It.” The two top releases made him the first country male artist in 17 years to have his first two singles reach No. 1.

In 2012, two more of his singles, “All Over The Road,” and “Lovin’ You Is Fun,” from the album “All Over The Road,” reached Top-5 status.

Corbin’s most recent album, the No. 1 hit “About To Get Real,” has produced singles “Baby Be My Love Song,” a Top-5 hit which was his career-best debut on Country Airplay, and “Yup.”

Corbin spent the first half of 2016 opening for Carrie Underwood as part of “The Storyteller Tour,” which made 45 stops in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. Corbin is also a partner with Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit organization which focuses on military families.
