Urban, Bentley To Perform At Daytona

Country superstar Keith Urban will perform at the Daytona 500 Pre-Race Show at Daytona International Speedway, on Feb. 15.

Urban is set to perform three of his eight Billboard No. 1 songs prior to the 51st annual Daytona 500 - the season-opening event to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series and the biggest, richest and most prestigious stock car race in the world.

Past performers have included Brooks & Dunn, Bon Jovi, Kelly Clarkson, LeAnn Rimes and Mariah Carey.

Urban's new album, as yet untitled, will be released March 31. First single, "Sweet Thing," is currently at No. 12 on Hot Country Songs. "Start A Band," on which he duets with Brad Paisley and which appears on Paisley's album "Play", is at No. 3.

Capitol Nashville labelmate Dierks Bentley will perform one week earlier on Feb. 7 at the Bud Shootout, which also takes place in Daytona. A portion of that concert will air on Fox.
