It's an honor to sing the National Anthem anywhere, but to have the honor of only being the sixth person to ever sing it at the Kentucky Derby must feel amazing. This year, the performance goes to a country music artist who I just know will make us all proud.

Moon’s First Kentucky Derby — I Won Big Bucks!

In 1970, my first "real" horse race was at Keeneland. As I looked over the form trying to decide what horse to place a bet on, I saw the name Dust Commander.
