Award-winning artist HARDY will serve as grand marshal for the Ally 400 NASCAR Cup Series race June 30 at Nashville Superspeedway.

The five-time ACM award winner and two-time CMA award winner is set to give NASCAR’s Cup Series drivers the command to start their engines before the 2:30 p.m. CT race in front of a live national audience on NBC.

“HARDY’s presence at the Ally 400 as our grand marshal perfectly embodies the dynamic energy and diverse talent that Music City is known for,” said Matt Greci, general manager of Nashville Superspeedway. “We are honored to have such an acclaimed artist, who has made significant contributions to country and rock music, join us for this exciting event. His command to start engines will undoubtedly set the stage for an unforgettable race day.”

HARDY soared to new heights in 2023 with the release of his critically acclaimed half-country, half-rock sophomore album, the mockingbird & THE CROW, adding to 4.6 billion career streams. The 17-track effort debuted top five all-genre on the Billboard 200 Albums chart and topped seven additional Billboard charts in its first week, including Top Country Albums, Top Rock Albums, and Top Album Sales.

Previous Ally 400 grand marshals include Old Dominion (2023), Kane Brown (2022) and Luke Combs (2021).
