(Fort Mill, SC) - Country music and professional wrestling will come together on Friday, April 12 as the Charlotte Knights will welcome Country Music Recording Artist and Eight-Time woman's wrestling champion Mickie James to Knights Stadium as part of the team's "Flashback Fridays" series.
James, who recently released the first single off of her second album titled "Somebody's Gonna Pay", will sing one of her songs before the 7:15 p.m. game against the Gwinnett Braves, Triple-A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves. Her latest album is scheduled for release on May 7. Her self-titled single, "Somebody's Gonna Pay", has been among one of the most downloaded country songs in the country since its release on February 19.
"We are very excited to welcome Mickie to Knights Stadium on April 12," said Knights General Manager of Baseball Operations Scott Brown. "Her combination of country music and professional wrestling make her a great guest for us, as we have passionate fans of both genres."
A native of Richmond, VA, James will also sign autographs for fans and throw out a ceremonial first pitch.
James has wrestled for both the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) and TNA Impact Wrestling (Total Nonstop Action) over the course of her extensive wrestling career. She is the only person to hold the WWE Women's, WWE Divas and TNA Knockout Championships in wrestling history.
