"Southern Voice" to Be Raised at the Daytona 500

What do you get when you blend a country music superstar, a song about the No. 3 and the granddaddy of all NASCAR races?

How 'bout a perfect recipe for a pre-race show.

It was announced this weekend that Tim McGraw will perform three songs before the Daytona 500 on Feb. 14. And it's a safe bet that his hit "Southern Voice" will be included in the performance. The tune pays homage to Dale Earnhardt - and a host of other prominent Southerners - with a driving hook that makes you want to lift a glass and shout "Yee Haw".

If this is part of NASCAR's infamous "return to its roots" strategy, this booking gets an A+.
