Award Winner To Sing National Anthem At Michigan

BROOKLYN, Mich. -– Award-winning country music singer Anita Cochran, whose debut album in 1997 included the No. 1 single "What If I Said," will sing the national anthem prior to the start of Sunday’s Kmart 400 NASCAR Winston Cup Series race at Michigan Speedway.

Cochran will also give a pre-race performance at the Winston Pit Stop in the Michigan Speedway infield on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Cochran hit No. 1 on Country Music Television with the video from her hit single "What If I Said" with Steve Wariner. The single was off her acclaimed debut album " Back To You" and won a TNN/Music City News Award for "Vocal Collaboration of the Year."

"Anita Cochran is a rising star in the world of country music from nearby South Lyon," said Gene Haskett, president of Michigan Speedway. "Having her perform at Michigan Speedway will enhance the weekend experience of our infield guests."

Cochran, who followed up her acclaimed debut album with the self-titled "Anita," is also a talented multi-instrumentalist and won a Gibson Guitar Award for "Best Country Guitarist (Female)" in 1998. Cochran also sang the national anthem on Opening Day at Detroit’s Comerica Park earlier this year.
