I found out last night that I will be playing the National Anthem for Charlotte Motor Speedway's Summer Shootout July 4th 2012! They have asked for a traditional rendition so there is no pressure to add any runs or take anything up higher. I usually gets calls anywhere from a few weeks or days before I play so July will not get here soon enough.
Looking forward to playing in front of my largest audience yet. I also get to take the family out for a night of fun and fireworks! Talk about motivation to keep practicing.
