INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Jim Cornelison is returning to Indianapolis Motor Speedway to sing "Back Home Again In Indiana" before next year's Indianapolis 500

The man with the booming voice is best known for singing his rendition of the national anthem at Chicago Blackhawks games.

Cornelison made his speedway debut in May and will be the first performer to sing Indiana's state song in consecutive years since Jim Nabors retired in 2014. He is a graduate of Indiana University's school of music.

Next year's race is scheduled for May 27.
