BROOKLYN, Mich. – Josh Gracin has performed live and on television for thousands of people, and now he will entertain the largest single-day sporting crowd in the state of Michigan.

Born and raised in Westland, Michigan, Gracin returns to his home state on Sunday, June 18th to perform The Star-Spangled Banner at Michigan International Speedway prior to the NASCAR NEXTEL Cup Series 3M Performance 400. The race will be televised live on FOX.

“We are thrilled to have Josh Gracin join us to perform for our first weekend of the season. Not only is he an extremely talented vocalist, but we know our fans will enjoy having a Michigan native help honor our country,” said Brett Shelton, president of MIS. “Having Josh at MIS is a great addition to pre-race ceremonies to start our season.”

Gracin will join actor and comedian Adam Sandler in the pre-race ceremonies. Sandler has been named the Grand Marshal for the 3M Performance 400 and will deliver the traditional command to start engines.

Josh Gracin’s self-titled debut CD is certified gold by the RIAA and has sold over 650,000 copies. The first single from the project, “I Want To Live,” was also his first hit – climbing the charts to #4 in country radio. Josh’s second single, “Nothin’ To Lose,” was his first #1 record. His third single “Stay With Me (Brass Bed)” was a Top 5 hit, giving him three consecutive Top 5 songs in country radio. Josh will release his second CD, featuring the hit single “Favorite State Of Mind,” later this year.
