CAPITOL RECORDS RECORDING ARTIST JON PARDI TO PERFORM BOJANGLES’ SOUTHERN 500 PRE-RACE CONCERT
DARLINGTON, S.C. (Feb. 12, 2014) – Capitol Records recording artist Jon Pardi will perform a pre-race concert before the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Bojangles’ Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway on April 12.
Pardi, a California native, is a rising country star whose debut album, Write You A Song, was released on January 14. The release includes Top Ten hit, “Up All Night,” and his Top 25 debut single, “Missin’ You Crazy.”
Pardi, who has shared the stage with Luke Bryan, Eric Church and many more of today’s hottest country artists, recently announced that he will be touring with Dierks Bentley on the 2014 RISER Tour this summer.
“Jon Pardi is one of the up and coming stars in country music and we’re excited that he will be performing our Bojangles’ Southern 500 pre-race concert,” Darlington Raceway President Chip Wile said. “We are always looking for different ways to enhance the guest experience on race weekend and having Jon Pardi as part of pre-race will certainly give our fans another element to get excited about.”
Fans of Pardi have an exclusive opportunity to watch his concert from in front of the pre-race stage. Starting on Saturday, Feb. 15, fans that purchase any grandstand ticket to the Bojangles’ Southern 500 will receive a special wristband, giving them unprecedented access to the front of the stage for the concert as well as driver introductions. The offer is valid until Sunday, Feb. 23 when the checkered flag waves for the Daytona 500.
“We announced this offer several days ago, but I felt it was important to reiterate that this is one of our best offers of the year,” Wile said. “This offer gives fans of Jon Pardi and NASCAR the opportunity to watch the concert and driver introductions from in front of the stage! All for just buying a grandstand ticket to the Bojangles’ Southern 500.”
