Award-winning recording artists Diamond Rio will headline a spectacular pre-race show at the SYLVANIA 300 on Sunday, September 14 at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.

In addition to a sizzling, 45-minute concert, the band will also perform the National Anthem for the more than 105,000 guests in attendance at the speedway and a live TV audience of millions on ABC.

Diamond Rio continues to be one of the most successful groups in country music.  Their 1991 debut album went platinum.  One year later the band was awarded their first Country Music Association Vocal Group of the Year award.  Their impressive resume to date includes: over 10 million records sold; nine No. 1 hits; 15 singles in the Top-Five; and six Vocal Group of the Year awards from an incredible mix of music associations. They were inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 1998.

Often recognized for their charitable contributions, Diamond Rio has received the coveted Minnie Pearl Humanitarian Award.  They are well known for their role as the National Spokespersons for Big Brothers Big Sisters.

"Diamond Rio has been together for over two decades with no changes, which is absolutely amazing in the music industry," said Jerry Gappens, executive vice president and general manger of New Hampshire Motor Speedway.  "We're working to build a tradition of exciting and popular pre-race entertainment here for our fans. I think the fans will really enjoy this talented group."
