Chris Young to Sing National Anthem
During Aaron’s Dream Weekend at Talladega

April 26, 2013…TALLADEGA, AL…Two well-known national personalities –
country music superstar Chris Young and noted news journalist and
recording artist Robin Meade – have been selected to sing the National
Anthems during Aaron’s Dream Weekend (May 3-5) at Talladega

Young will give his rendition of “The Star Spangled Banner” prior to
the Saturday, May 4, Aaron’s 312 NASCAR Nationwide Series race, which is
scheduled for a 2 pm (CST) start on ESPN. Meade will provide the fans
her version on Sunday, May 5, moments before the start of Aaron’s 499
NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, set for a noon (CST) green flag. In
addition, Young will deliver Talladega fans an added bonus with a free
Saturday night Infield Concert, held near the historic Talladega

“We have two individuals who, with their interpretation of our National
Anthem, will give an outstanding performance for our fans,” said
Talladega Superspeedway Chairman Grant Lynch. “We’re excited to have
Chris sing prior to the start of the Aaron’s 312, and can’t wait for his
concert on Saturday night. Robin is not only the ultimate professional
delivering the news to us nationally, but is a recording artist with a
remarkable singing voice.”

Young is a Grammy nominated vocalist with five number one singles to
his credit, including chart-toppers “Voices,” “Tomorrow” and “You.” His
career highlights include recent TV appearances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Talk, Katie, ABC’s Nashville and the ACM Awards.  With his rich, warm baritone and penchant for writing relatable, slice-of-life songs, Young, as described by Entertainment Weekly,
clearly “has a long, lucrative future ahead of him.” Following the
concert at Talladega, he joins the “Beat This Summer Tour” with Brad
Paisley, which goes through the fall.

Meade, the longtime host of HLN’s “Morning Express with Robin Meade”
releases her sophomore country album in June to iTunes and Target
stores. Her debut album “Brand New Day”, won strong reviews in 2011. It
featured songs Meade had written, as well as a stunning cover of Don
Henley’s “Dirty Laundry”. In addition to her award-winning tv and music
careers, Meade’s book “Morning Sunshine! How to Radiate Confidence and
Feel It, Too” instantly became a New York Times Bestseller when it was
released in 2009.

Friday’s National Anthem prior to the International Motorsports Hall of
Fame 250 ARCA Series race will be performed by Amy Knight of
Gardendale, AL. She is a member of the acappella oldies group Back In Time.

The most competitive racing in NASCAR combined with a mix of southern
hospitality returns to Talladega Superspeedway May 3-5 for the Aaron’s
Dream Weekend. Experience the excitement as the superstars of NASCAR
attempt to tackle the high-banks of ‘DEGA at 200 mph. Secure your
