LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Last year it was Martina McBride and this year, Churchill Downs is staying with country.

Jo Dee Messina will sing the national anthem leading up to the 140th running of the Kentucky Derby.

Messina will sing just after 5 p.m. making her only the sixth artist to perform the national anthem before the Kentucky Derby.

Messina attended the Kentucky Derby for the first time in 2013; she is on tour right now with her new album “Entitled Me.”
