Blake Shelton Returns to Open 2017 NASCAR Season
Blake Shelton is bringing back the sunshine for his ongoing partnership with NASCAR. The country superstar sings the NASCAR theme song again in 2017, marking his third time at the helm of a new racing season.
"Hey Daytona!" Shelton yells at the start of the 90-second clip before diving into an updated version of his song "Bringing Back the Sunshine," tailored to NASCAR.
"Everybody ready, set, go / Rev it up and let's go / There's a party in the fast lane," he sings.
Shelton's NASCAR opening — which will air for the first time on July 1 at 7PM ET on NBC — also stars some of the biggest name in the sport, with Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie Johnson, Danica Patrick, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch and Joey Logano making cameos in the video. Each driver is seen signing autographs, hugging family members before the big race and smiling for cameras.
The Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway will broadcast via NBC this weekend.
This is far from the only time country fans will see Shelton on television in the coming months, as The Voice is set to return on Sept. 25. Season 13 of the reality singing competition boasts two female hosts with the return of Miley Cyrus and debut of Jennifer Hudson. Mainstays Shelton and Adam Levine are back in their respective red chairs — they've been on every season since the series began in 2011.
