As the Predators return to Bridgestone Arena for Game 7 of Round 2 of the 2018 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs on Thursday, May 10, we are curious as to who will sing the National Anthem. There have been some great performances so far. Here are three of the most memorable anthem performances.
Carrie Underwood- What can we say, her powerhouse voice delivers the National Anthem like very few can. And, every time she sings, we win. Maybe we should just ask her back for each game.
Keith Urban – Last year, Urban, Austrailian native performed the National Anthem for the very first time ever at the Predators playoff game.”I’ve lived in America for 25 years,” he told NHL Network’s Jon Morosi. “I’ve never been asked to sing the National Anthem before, so it’s an honor to do it here in Nashville for the Preds.”
Lady Antebellum – This past weekend, Lady A performed the National Anthem but stumbled over the words. It was Charles Kelley who skipped over “through the perilous fight” to “were so gallantly streaming.” They immediately put a message out to fans on Twitter saying,“Welp. We’re human too y’all. We’re still rooting for ya Preds!!!”
With game 7 at Bridgestone the day after Justin Timberlake’s concert, we think it could be a possibility for him to walk out on the ice to sing or maybe we could see an appearance from Taylor Swift. And of course, we have to add Dolly to our list. Below, it’s your turn to vote.
Fans who don’t have tickets to the game can join the watch party that will take place at Music City Walk of Fame Park, which is located across Fifth Avenue South from Bridgestone Arena. The party, which is free and open to the public, will start at 5 p.m. in advance of the game getting underway at Bridgestone Arena at 7 p.m.
