NASCAR has just announced that Big Machine’s newest artist, Ella Mae Bowen, will perform at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Awards ceremony December 2nd at Wynn Las Vegas. Valory Music Co artist Reba McEntire will host and also perform at the event that honors the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion and the other drivers who finished top 10 of the final series standings.
Ella Mae will sing her version of “Holding Out For A Hero” which appeared on the Footloose movie sound track earlier this year. Fans can watch both the red carpet special and the awards ceremony on the SPEED network starting at 9 pm EST.
Ella Mae is a South Carolina native who was recently signed to Big Machine as a singer-songwriter. The 15-year old may be the next Taylor Swift, who also calls the label home. Ella Mae expects to release music next year on Big Machine, and she’s currently working on her debut record in studio.
