Luke Bryan's popularity continues to soar. The singer has been invited to headline the Feb. 23 Budweiser Pre-Race Show at the Daytona 500, which serves as the kickoff to the Great American Race.

“We’re thrilled to have a talented artist such as Luke Bryan perform prior to the start of the Daytona 500,” Joie Chitwood III, Daytona International Speedway President, says. “We’re expecting Luke to put on an exhilarating show that will energize our race fans as we kick off the new NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season."

Bryan joins an all-star list of artists who have been invited to perform at the Daytona 500, including Keith Urban, Bon Jovi, Lenny Kravitz, Brad Paisley and Tim McGraw.

This is not the reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year's first appearance at a race track. He previously kicked off the 2012 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup at Chicagoland Speedway with a performance of the national anthem. He also rode on the hood of Brad Keselowski's No. 2 Miller Lite Ford at Michigan International Speedway last August.

Special packages are available for those interested in attending the pre-race show and race.  For more information, click here.

Bryan recently had to postpone a show in his My Kind of Night Tour, after a stage collapsed following the opening night in Columbus, Ohio. He will continue his tour this week with two shows in Connecticut, followed by a sold-out show at Madison Square Garden in New York City. See all of his upcoming concerts here.
