NASCAR just announced that country music megastar Reba McEntire will host its Sprint Cup Award Ceremony December 2nd at the Wynn Las Vegas. The ceremony will honor the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup champion and other drivers who made the top ten of the final series standings. Over the years, the award show has become an entertainment hot spot with stars from every genre in music attending.
In addition to hosting the event, Reba will perform “Turn On The Radio” from her latest album “All The Woman I Am.” Other special segments involving Reba will be announced at a later time by NASCAR and The Valory Music Co., and the segments will be aired live on SPEED and Sirius/XM radio.
“I’m delighted to be hosting the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards this year,” Reba said. “Country Music and NASCAR have shared fans for many years so I’ll feel right at home. My family and I have gotten to meet so many nice people in the racing industry this year with my youngest son, Shelby, being one of the competitors. We appreciate so much the super hospitality.”
Reba’s son Shelby Blackstock competes in the GRAND-Am Road Racing competition and she frequently attends his races. She’s performed “America The Beautiful” and “God Bless America” at earlier races this year.
