The Nashville Predators brought out their secret weapon—Luke Bryan—before Game 4 of their playoff series against the Chicago Blackhawks last night (April 20).
Like Carrie Underwood a couple of nights before, Luke was tasked with singing the national anthem before the puck dropped. And just like his performance at this year’s Super Bowl, Luke once again delivered the anthem to the delight of the sell-out crowd—this time at Bridgestone Arena, the very arena where he has won two CMA Entertainer of the Year Awards.
The Predators went on to win the game (4-1) and sweep the series (4-0) against the Blackhawks, a team that had the best record in the conference. The Preds punched their ticket to Round Two of the playoffs, awaiting the winner of the St. Louis/Minnesota series.
After pulling out their big guns with Carrie and Luke in the first round, it will be fun to watch who the Preds get to sing the anthem next.
Watch Luke’s performance below.
