CHELSEA BAIN TO SING NATIONAL ANTHEM PRIOR TO GREAT CLIPS 200
Country singer and Arizona-native Chelsea Bain will sing “The Star Spangled Banner” prior to the Great Clips 200 NASCAR Nationwide Series Race at Phoenix International Raceway on Saturday, November 10.
"I am truly humbled by this sensational experience. I grew up watching and being around NASCAR and I remember having the dream of someday being able to perform at these types of events. I have enjoyed playing on the Coca-Cola stage these past few months; it's been amazing,” said Bain. “Coke and NASCAR are two great brands to be associated with and as a new artist, I couldn't have asked for a greater opportunity".
After spending her teenage years competing on horseback and winning more than ten national and world championships, Bain felt it was time to apply her skills and determination toward rocking music arenas. Embarking on an artist development mission, Bain will be releasing her first full-length album, All-American Country Girl, on Rock Ridge Music distributed through Warner Music. “Rockin’ That Trailer” is the first single from the forthcoming album and is due for release in early 2013.
With more than 45,000 Facebook likes, millions of YouTube views, and substantial Twitter action, Bain has already licensed music from her upcoming CD for placement in sports programming, while also performing on various news affiliates throughout her tour. Bain’s music is currently available on iTunes. For more information, please visit www.chelseabainmusic.com.
