Blake Shelton goes "Home" for NASCAR
Monday, February 11, 2008
– Blake Shelton recently rejoined his choir from NBC's Clash of the Choirs, Team Shelton, and recorded "Home" as the signature song for ESPN's return to NASCAR for the 2008 season.
Shelton and the choir will open the Daytona 300 Nationwide race broadcast Saturday, Feb. 16 at noon eastern on ESPN2. "Home" will be featured as bumps and rollouts throughout the race telecast and used in promotion spots on ESPN and ESPN2 the week prior to the race.
Shelton and his choir grouped in Oklahoma City, Okla. several weeks ago for the reunion and taping. The song they recorded was one they performed in the Clash competition, the foot-stomping "Home," by Marc Broussard. The song is not to be confused with Shelton's current single "Home," written and originally performed by Michael Buble.
