‘X FACTOR’ WINNER TATE STEVENS TO PERFORM NATIONAL ANTHEM AT APRIL 21 STP 400
Season Two X Factor winner Tate Stevens is returning home to sing the national anthem prior to the April 21, 2013 STP 400. Stevens, who hails from Belton, Mo., is making his first appearance at Kansas Speedway prior to two concerts in Kansas City on April 21 and April 22, and the release of his debut album on April 23, 2013.
“I’m excited to have Tate perform the national anthem at his ‘hometown’ track,” said Kansas Speedway President Patrick Warren. “I know our fans will give him a great reception.”
Stevens’ first hometown concert in Kansas City, scheduled for the evening of April 21, sold out in 30 minutes, leading him to add a second concert on April 22. He will also make several appearances in conjunction with the release of his self titled album before joining country music star Alan Jackson on several tour dates this year. The album includes Stevens’ current single “Power of a Love Song,” which is currently airing on country radio.
