Luke Bryan Performs National Anthem Before Predators Playoff Game [WATCH]
How do you top a surprise National Anthem performance by Carrie Underwood? You bring out Luke Bryan. The country superstar was the Nashville Predators’ National Anthem singer of choice for before Game 4 of their Stanley Cup Playoffs series vs. the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday night (April 20).
Readers can press play above to watch Bryan’s performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner” at Bridgestone Arena. Like Underwood, the singer donned a Predators jersey for the song and ended his performance by waving a Predators rally towel in the air.
Following his National Anthem performance, Bryan shared a photo of himself at ice level in Bridgestone Arena. “Let’s do this @PredsNHL,” the caption reads.
His Thursday night National Anthem performance wasn’t Bryan’s only high-profile Anthem performance of 2017: In February, he performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” before Super Bowl LI, a cappella.
The Predators defeated the Blackhawks 4-1 on Thursday night, ending their first-round Stanley Cup Playoffs series with a four-game sweep. The Predators will face either the Minnesota Wild or the St. Louis Blues in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs; St. Louis leads that series 3-1.
