Jimmie Allen's rendition of the national anthem at Indy 500 wins hearts. Watch
Country music hitmaker Jimmie Allen kick-started the Idly 500 event with a soulful rendition of the national anthem. Last year, several country artists, including Lady Antebellum, Thomas Rhett, Sheryl Crow, and Florida Georgia Line, performed the national anthem together.
“The National Anthem is a signature pre-race moment, and this year’s rendition carries extra meaning as we prepare to welcome fans back to the Indy 500 and honor our frontline heroes,” J. Douglas Boles, President of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Corporation, had said.
Meanwhile, Jimmie Allen's rendition impressed netizens.
Allen was recently named "New Male Artist of the Year" by the Academy of Country Music Awards.
