LEXINGTON, Kentucky, Mar. 10—Wynonna Judd will sing “My Old Kentucky Home” as the pinnacle performance of the Opening Ceremony of the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games Sept. 25.
“I could not be more thrilled to have the opportunity to return home to my roots. Kentucky holds such a sacred place in my heart and to have this honor to share the home I so dearly love with my friends and family brings me great joy,” Judd said.
The 2010 Games will feature world championship competitions in eight equestrian sports at the Kentucky Horse Park from Sept. 25 through Oct. 10, making the WEG held every four years the largest sporting event in America this year.
The Opening Ceremonies program will feature more than 200 horses, a symphony orchestra and chorale to showcase the equestrian and musical heritage of Kentucky and America.
“This song, with this artist in a stadium of 30,000 spectators is going create a magical moment for everyone, regardless of their home state or country,” said Dr. Everett McCorvey, whose company, Global Creative Connection, is producing the ceremonies.
Tickets for Opening Ceremonies, as well as the competition events of the 2010 Games, are on sale at www.alltechfeigames.com/tickets.
