INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Country music star LeAnn Rimes will sing the national anthem before the start of this year's Indianapolis 500.

The Indianapolis Motor Speedway announced the selection Thursday. Rimes said in a statement that it is an honor to be picked to sing the anthem at the race's 98th running on May 25.

Rimes had her first national hit in 1996 when she was 13 years old and has since won multiple Grammy Awards.

This year's pre-race festivities will be highlighted by what actor Jim Nabors says will be his final singing of ''Back Home Again in Indiana'' at the track. The 83-year-old Nabors has performed the song nearly every year since 1972.
