NASHVILLE, Tennessee (Oct. 22, 2021) – Big Machine Label Group rising artists Danielle Bradbery (Big Machine Records) and Abbey Cone (The Valory Music Co.) will perform at the Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony next Wednesday, Oct. 27 at the Nashville Fairgrounds Expo.


Bradbery, who has earned multiple award nominations and toured across the globe with some of the biggest names in music, will perform a three-song set in celebration of the six decorated individuals being honored for their impactful racing careers. Her latest release “Stop Draggin’ Your Boots” shows a side of herself fans have never seen before in a fiery coming-of-age declaration. She takes the put-up-or-shut-up honky tonk shuffle one step further with a boot-stompin’ video embodying the song’s feisty message – watch here.


An inductee of CMT’s Next Women of Country’s 2020 class, Cone will open the Hall of Fame Ceremony with the singing of the National Anthem. The 23-year-old Country up and comer recently debuted “Rhinestone Ring,” a heartfelt song that details how true love trumps the desire for material things.


The event begins at 6:30 p.m. CT on Wednesday and serves as the official start of the 37th Running of the US Tank All-American 400 Race Weekend in Memory of Jillian Brown. In addition to performances by Bradbery and Cone, there will be classic racecar display, silent auction and more.


The Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony is open to the public, but seats are limited. Tickets can be purchased online at Tables are available for $240 and are expected to sell quickly.
