Brantley Gilbert will headline a special 45 minute front stretch pre-race concert presented by Coca-Cola and the USO on Sunday, May 25 at Charlotte Motor Speedway. The concert will help get fans pumped up for the Coca-Cola 600, a Memorial Day Weekend staple.

“I can definitely relate to the high-adrenaline NASCAR crowds,” Brantley said. “Music and racing fans have a lot in common – they’re pretty rowdy and diehard! It’s no wonder I’ve loved both my whole life. The fastest half-mile track in Georgia was literally five minutes from my house growing up and we were always there. My dad even worked on a racing team in the Hooter’s [Pro] Cup Series for a while. I love the smell of gas, the motor and the tires. Being able to play a show for like-minded people and having them party their tails off at the same time is going to be a blast. I can’t wait for Charlotte Motor Speedway.”

Brantley’s new album, Just As I Am, will hit store shelves on May 19. It will feature his latest No. 1 single, “Bottoms Up.” Brantley is currently on the road, headlining his Let It Ride Tour.
