Truck, yeah!

This November, legendary, Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter and actor Tim McGraw will be “on top of the world” with a brand new album, Damn Country Music, and a special live performance at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Sunday, November 22 prior to the Ford EcoBoost 400, the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship finale.

The three-time Grammy Award winner will be a highlight of Ford Championship Weekend, with part of his live performance featured on Countdown to Green on NBC Sports Network, which begins at 1:30 p.m. ET. The Ford EcoBoost 400, which marks the final event of the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup, will air on NBC at 3 p.m. ET, and be broadcast internationally to more than 200 countries in 24 languages.

McGraw will release his fourteenth studio album, Damn Country Music, on November 6. Eleven of his albums have debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Album chart, and he has sold more than 40 million albums. In addition, he has had 36 number singles reach No. 1 on the country radio charts. McGraw has won three Grammy Awards, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards, 11 Country Music Association Awards, 10 American Music Awards and three People’s Choice Awards, the most recent in 2014 for “Country Music Icon.”

“We couldn’t be more excited to bring Tim McGraw to Homestead-Miami Speedway and South Florida to kick off the championship finale, the Ford EcoBoost 400,” Homestead-Miami Speedway President Matthew Becherer said. “Tim McGraw is a legend in the country music industry, and this is the perfect way to get things revved-up for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship race. We are really looking forward to his special performance and know the fans will be as well.”
