Country Music Star Jake Owen to Perform at NASCAR Awards Show

It wouldn’t be a proper Nashville party without a country music megastar gracing the stage.

Multiplatinum-selling entertainer Jake Owen will perform during the NASCAR Awards and Champion Celebration event this Thursday, Dec. 2 in downtown Nashville.

Before all the accolades honoring the 2021 NASCAR season, Owen will open the show at the Music City Center with a live performance of his latest hit single, “Best Thing Since Backroads.”

The Florida native is no stranger to NASCAR, having performed the pre-race concert before the 2019 DAYTONA 500 at Daytona International Speedway.

Fans can tune in to watch the 2021 NASCAR Awards, including Owen’s performance, when it airs Saturday, Dec. 4 at 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN. In addition to the Cup Series champion, NASCAR will honor the Xfinity Series and Camping World Truck Series champions in the largest awards show to date.
