The NHL’s Nashville Predators were back in action against the Pittsburgh Penguins for Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Final on Monday night (June 5).
Like the Preds nine previous home playoff games, the performance of the national anthem was a star-studded affair—this time Dierks Bentley 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).
Martina McBride got the call to perform the anthem before Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins on June 3.
Tonight, it was Dierks’ turn to get the crowded turned up. Watch his performance below.
