BROOKLYN, MI. SHeDAISY, whose recently released album “Fortuneteller’s Melody” has received widespread acclaim with two Top 40 Country singles in 2006, will headline the post-race concert performance at The Tailgate of a Lifetime™ after the conclusion of the NASCAR Busch Series Carfax 250 on Saturday, August 19. The Tailgate of a Lifetime is being hosted by Lifetime Products, Inc. as a celebration of American tailgating culture.

Fans who have purchased tickets to the Carfax 250, which will feature not only the regulars of the Busch Series but also NEXTEL Cup stars like Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Busch Series points leader Kevin Harvick, can use their ticket stubs for gate admission to the post-race concert. The show will also feature country newcomers Cowboy Crush and Hunter Brucks. Tickets are just $50 and can be purchased by calling MIS at 1-800-354-1010 or by accessing www.MISpeedway.com.

SHeDAISY’s 1999 debut album “The Whole SHeBANG” featured the group’s first single “Little Goodbyes,” which appeared as high as #3 on the Top Country charts. “I Will...But” followed at #2, and the album’s third Top 10 single, “This Woman Needs,” gave the group platinum status. SHeDAISY’s 2002 album “Knock on the Sky” escalated to #3 on the country charts, and their 2004 album “Sweet Right Here” featured three Top 20 singles, including the lead “Passenger Seat” and continuing the group’s strong run of success.

The Utah-based trio, consisting of sisters Kristyn, Kelsi, and Kassidy Osborn, takes their group’s name from a Navajo word meaning “my sisters.” Kelsi, who recently gave birth to twin daughters Savannah and Adyson, has been replaced on the 2006 summer tour by youngest sister Karli.

Cowboy Crush, an up-and-coming country quintet from Tennessee, has been called Nashville’s most unique band ever. Having recently completed a gig in the CMA Music Festival and a fourteen-day tour of Europe, the sassy group of five is now making its way through the United States. Their hit video, “Nobody Ever Died of a Broken Heart,” has climbed as high as the Great American Country Top 20 countdown. Cowboy Crush features lead singer Trenna Barnes with Debbie Johnson and Darla Perlozzi on the bass and drums. Becky Priest adds flair on the keyboard, and Renae Truex delivers a true country feel on the fiddle and the mandolin.

“NASCAR and country music fans are one and the same,” said Barnes. “They like it loud, rowdy, and fast.” Johnson and Truex added, “That's why Cowboy Crush can't wait to join in the party with Michigan race fans on August 19th!”

Hunter Brucks believed in two things as a child: a strong work ethic and the guitar. The sixth son of a Michigan farmer, Brucks turned his childhood passion for the guitar into a rock-and-roll career. After opening for classic rock icons like REO Speedwagon and Bachman Turner Overdrive, Brucks sold 10,000 copies of his own CD “License to Kill” from the trunk of his car. Now, with his band that features Brian Lord on the guitar, Matt Cousino on the fiddle and mandolin, Johnny Cappelletty on drums, and Craig Michaels on the bass, Brucks brings his blue-collar ethic to Michigan International Speedway for a big show in his home state. The band’s first album, “Driven,” is due out in the fall.

Race weekend concerts have been a hit with MIS fans since 2002 and have included artists such as the Blues Brothers featuring Dan Aykroyd and Jim Belushi (2002), 3 Doors Down (2003), Cledus T. Judd (2004) and Sugarland/Josh Turner (2005).

Lifetime, the maker of folding tables that are a favorite among tailgaters, has created www.tailgateofalifetime.com, a comprehensive website for everything needed for tailgating. From recipes and grills to decorations, stadium policies and safety information, this website is a one-stop resource for everyone from novices to pros.
