Award-winning country music duo and longtime friends Maddie & Tae will channel their unbreakable bond on Sunday, March 3, at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The duo will rev up NASCAR fans before the start of the Pennzoil 400 with a pre-race concert on the start-finish line.
The Nashville-based country duo will perform hits from each one of their albums and showcase songs that have recognized them as one of country music’s most successful duos, earning six Academy of Country Music nominations for Duo of the Year and six Country Music Association nominations for Vocal Duo of the Year. They are expected to take the stage at the speedway at approximately 11 a.m.
“We are beyond excited to announce Maddie & Tae as this year’s pre-race concert,” said LVMS President Chris Powell. “Our fans have shown us how much they love the pre-race entertainment we host, and with the enormous popularity this duo has achieved, we know this will be a big hit with all of our fans.”
Maddie & Tae first broke out in 2013 with their brilliant counter to bro-country, the Platinum-selling smash, “Girl In A Country Song,” which took country radio by storm, skyrocketing to the top of the charts and establishing them as only the third female duo in 70 years to top the Country Airplay charts. They recently took home Group/Duo Video of the Year (“Woman You Got”) at the CMT Music Awards and were nominated for an eighth time for Vocal Duo of the Year at the 56th CMA Awards. They have earned trophies from the Radio Disney Music and CMA Awards and multiple ACM, Billboard, and CMT Award nominations. Maddie & Tae have received widespread praise from the Associated Press, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly, NPR, The Tennessean, The Washington Post, Glamour and others. The celebrated duo has toured with country music’s hottest stars, including Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley, and Brad Paisley. They recently headlined the CMT Next Women of Country Tour Presents: All Song No Static Tourin 2022, hitting major markets coast-to-coast.
