It's always been a great mix...Country Music and Auto Racing! And it looks like the 2013 Daytona 500 will be no different. According to the Associated Press, one of the great country bands will be playing down at the track.

(AP) - Zac Brown Band are excited about returning to the Grammys. The first time they went was in 2010 and they won best new artist. Now they're up for the country album Grammy. Zac Brown says other awards have a lot of politics, but he feels the Grammys is "legitimately chosen by your peers as an artist."

Brown's band will also play the Daytona 500 on February 24. He says he has not yet made a set list for that show but he's planning something "up tempo" and "rockin"' to "get everybody pumped up for the race."
