Reba McEntire Set to Host NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards Ceremony
Fans of Reba McEntire and NASCAR are in luck next month. The country superstar has been announced as the host for the 2011 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards Ceremony. The annual ceremony will honor all the Sprint Cup champions and other drivers who finished within the Top 10 of the final series standings.
In addition to hosting the exciting awards ceremony, McEntire will also perform her recent chart-topping hit, 'Turn on the Radio,' from her newly released album, 'All the Woman I Am.'
NASCAR holds a special place in McEntire's heart, as her 21-year-old son Shelby Blackstock competes in GRAND-AM Road Racing competition, of which his proud mom attended several of his big events this year.
"I’m delighted to be hosting the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards this year," says McEntire. "Country Music and NASCAR have shared fans for many years so I’ll feel right at home. My family and I have gotten to meet so many nice people in the racing industry this year with my youngest son, Shelby, being one of the competitors. We appreciate so much the super hospitality."
The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Awards Ceremony is set for Dec. 2 at Las Vegas' Wynn Casino.
