The “Duck Dynasty” cast has been seen performing with Brad Paisley at the CMA Awards, recently got the honor of announcing the ACM Awards Entertainer of the Year nominees, and now, the famous bearded bunch is hooking up with another country music favorite–NASCAR.
NASCAR announced on February 6 that Duck Commander, the actual company behind the “Duck Dynasty” show, has agreed to sponsor the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Texas Motor Speedway. The agreement is for three years with an option to renew for an additional three.
A “Duck Dynasty” presence at NASCAR is a merger of the best of three worlds for “Duck Dynasty” and country music fans. Country music artists have long been known for being fans of NASCAR. Reba McEntire’s son is a professional race car driver, Brad Paisley has included sound bites and lyrics about NASCAR into songs such as “Southern Comfort Zone,” and many celebrities such as Luke Bryan, Justin Moore, The Band Perry, Laura Bell Bundy, Dustin Lynch, Cassadee Pope and more have either attended or performed at NASCAR events.
Furthermore, country artists have welcomed the cast of “Duck Dynasty” into the country music scene on more than one occasion. In addition to appearing on country music awards shows, the “Duck Dynasty” crew has appeared in music videos such as Tyler Farr’s “Red Neck Crazy” and the video for Darius Rucker’s GRAMMY winning song “Wagon Wheel.”
According to NASCAR, the Duck Dynasty family, the Robertsons, will have a strong presence at
the Sprint Cup Series race, which will be referred to as the Duck Commander 500. With so many country music artists attending NASCAR events, it looks like the Duck Dynasty gang may also get a chance to chat with friends at the track.
