Big Machine Records recording artist Danielle Bradbery will provide a fitting kickoff to NTT Indycar Series new race on the streets of downtown Nashville, riding in the Ruoff Fastest Seat in Sports at this weekend’s Big Machine Music City Grand Prix. The Voice season 4 winner, whose latest single “Stop Draggin’ Your Boots” was released just last week, will be driven by legendary racing icon Mario Andretti.
“I’ve been extremely fortunate to do some amazing things in my career but never, in my wildest dreams, would I have ever thought I’d be able to ride with the legend, Mario Andretti,” Danielle said in a statement. “On Sunday, that dream comes true!”
With “Stop Draggin’ Your Boots,” the country singer shows a side of herself fans have never seen before in a fiery coming-of-age declaration. She takes the put-up-or-shut-up honky tonk shuffle one step further with a video embodying the song’s feisty message.
