(AUDIO) Justin Moore Performing Post-Race and Pre-Race Concerts In Indy This Weekend

July 21, 2013

Justin Moore will be heading to Indianapolis this weekend to perform as part of the festivities surrounding the Brickyard 400. First he’ll play a post-race concert on Saturday night after the Nationwide Race, which he’s looking forward to because he says, “We’ll have the full production and all that stuff, which will be a lot of fun.” Then on Sunday he’ll perform a mini pre-race concert trackside, including his latest single, “Point At You,” before the running of the Brickyard 400. Justin is a big racing fan because he says, “I just always respected all of the moving parts that make a race what it is and make a race team what it is. It’s easy to look at the driver and go, ‘Well they won because they’re the best driver,’ or whatever, but there’s so many talented people on the pit crew and on the pit box. And it’s something for me that I realized I could never do but I respect the heck out of those guys for their talents.”

In addition to performing at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, Justin has been helping to raise money for the Armed Forces Foundation with a new song he recorded called “Heroes,” that was written by Greg Bates. Justin explains, “Smarter people than me came up with the idea that if we put it out there on the web site and let people download it for free, you can do so at CrownHeroesSong.com, and a dollar will be donated to our Armed Forces Foundation each time that happens.” You can download the song and trigger a donation through the running of the Crown Royal Presents the Samuel Deeds 400 at the Brickyard Powered by BigMachineRecords.com, on July 28th.

“I was fortunate to get to do it last year and have been there a couple of times, and I’m a big NASCAR fan, so first and foremost it’ll be fun to be there as a fan of NASCAR and just taking in the race day stuff. But the fact that we’re getting to help some folks out along the way makes it even better. We were fortunate to get to do the ‘Crown Royal Your Heroes Name Here’ program with them last year and it’s pretty cool to be involved in a larger capacity this year. We cut a song called ‘Heroes’ that Greg Bates actually wrote. But in thinking about how to grow this thing and help them from our end we thought, ‘man, let’s cut this song.’ And smarter people than me came up with the idea that if we put it out there on the web site and let people download it for free, you can do so at CrownHeroesSong.com, and a dollar will be donated to our Armed Forces Foundation each time that happens. So, looking forward to being there for the race but it’s even better to get to be a part of a program like the ‘Your Heroes Name Here’ program.”

“Growing up in Arkansas, I mean it was one of the big, big, big sports. I just always respected all of the moving parts that make a race what it is and make a race team what it is. It’s easy to look at the driver and go, ‘Well they won because they’re the best driver,’ or whatever, but there’s so many talented people on the pit crew and on the pit box. And it’s something for me that I realized I could never do but I respect the heck out of those guys for their talents.”

“We will be performing after the Nationwide Race on Saturday night and we’ll have the full production and all that stuff, which will be a lot of fun. And then it’ll be a lot of fun for us to do something we’ve not done. We’ll be playing trackside before the race and that’ll be a lot of fun, real exciting, and we’re looking forward to that for sure.”
