Wynonna Judd will perform the National Anthem at this year’s Kentucky Derby, while Martha Stewart will handle the ‘Riders Up’ announcing duties, Churchill Downs said via a press release early Friday morning.

Judd, a Kentucky native, will take the mic just after 5 p.m. ET and her performance will be broadcast as part of NBC’s Derby coverage.

“I am so proud to represent my home state, taking part in one of the most storied and iconic traditions,” Wynonna Judd said. “The Kentucky Derby is something I look forward to every year and being able to perform this year makes the momentous event even more special.”
