Jim Cornelison returned to Indianapolis Motor Speedway to perform "Back Home Again in Indiana" at the Indy 500 on Sunday. Making his third appearance at one of the most famous races in sports, the Blackhawks anthem singer paid tribute to his home state with the famous song.
Cornelison was joined by the Purdue University band to kick off the Indy 500 with the song that has marked the beginning of the race since 1946. Jim Nabors handled song duties from 1972 to 2014 with Cornelison taking on the role in 2017.
Cornelison wrote about his experience performing at the Indy 500 for Blackhawks.com in 2018.
