Sam Hunt Ready To Perform For Indy 500 Fans
Sam Hunt is set to headline the fifth annual Firestone Legends Day concert on Saturday, May 26th in Indianapolis at the Indy 500. The concert is a first for the superstar, and he’s looking forward to the energy of this particular crowd.
“Obviously, I’m not the draw. The race is the draw, but when you have people together in a good mood for a common cause and you can come in and provide entertainment during the down time, it’s like you’re already ahead when you start playing. There is something about having people come out to a show and specifically come out to see you, but there’s also something about getting a bunch of people together to have a good time and playing some music and that’s what we’ll be doing at the race. I’ve never been to this style of race and I’ve never been in this environment before. I’ve gone to some races back around the house at Talladega, which is just down the road from my (old) house, and they’re just so festive. The race culture is unique and specific, and I can get in there and mix it up with ‘em.”
This will be Sam’s first live performance of his new hit, “Downtown’s Dead,” which he just released last week.
