More Mountain Heart at Martinsville

Here are a few more photos of Mountain Heart’s big day at the Martinsville Speedway this past Sunday. They had been invited to sing the National Anthem before the race, which was carried live on ABC television.

Their rendition featured Josh Shilling as the primary vocalist, with the rest of the members providing harmony on a powerful and inventive arrangement. Mountain Heart manager Brian Smith tells us that he has been responding to feedback since Sunday afternoon.

“It was a milestone event for them and we are getting interest in more gigs as a result.

Racing legend Richard Petty came over while there to congratulate the guys and said he loved it. Numerous other drivers and team members did so as well before they climbed into their cars for the race.”
