INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Country singer Martina McBride will sing the national anthem at the May 27 Indianapolis 500.

McBride's website announced her selection Wednesday.

The Grammy-winning singer is a four-time Country Music Association Female Vocalist of the Year and three-time Academy of Country Music Female Vocalist of the Year. She has sold more than 18 million albums and had six No. 1 singles.

McBride says singing the national anthem at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway is a "huge honor."

Speedway spokesman Doug Boles tells The Indianapolis Star that officials wanted a performer who would sing the national anthem in the traditional manner.
