The NHL’s Nashville Predators were back in action against the Pittsburgh Penguins for Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday night (June 3).
Like the Preds eight previous home playoff games, the performance of the national anthem was a star-studded affair—this time Martina McBride had the honor.
In Round 1 of the playoffs against the Chicago Blackhawks, Carrie Underwood (April 17) and Luke Bryan (April 20) sang the national anthem before Games 3 and 4, respectively.
In Round 2 against the St. Louis Blues, Little Big Town (April 30), Vince Gill (May 2) and Lady Antebellum (May 7) had the honors before Games 3, 4 and 6, respectively.
In the Western Conference Finals against the Anaheim Ducks, Keith Urban (May 16) delighted the crowd with an a cappella performance before Game 3, while Kelly Clarkson sang the anthem before Game 4 (May 18) and Trisha Yearwood got the nod before Game 6 (May 22).
Tonight, Martina McBride got the call to perform the anthem before the Preds’ first home game of the Stanley Cup Final. Watch Martina sing the anthem in front of the sellout crowd.
