Smashville Welcomes Little Big Town

Grammy-Winning Band Crushes National Anthem for Nashville Predators

The Nashville Predators continue to dominate the NHL Playoffs with their 3-1 win over the St. Louis Blues on Sunday (April 30) at the Bridgestone Arena.

And they’re doing it all to the sound of country stars singing the National Anthem.

Before Sunday’s game, Little Big Town became the latest country act to surprise the Preds with a moving performance of the “The Star-Spangled Banner.” All were decked out in No. 4 blue and gold jerseys as Karen Fairchild led their four-part harmony.

Ironically enough, Ryan Ellis, who wears No. 4 for the Predators, scored a first-period goal at 10:34 for a 1-0 lead.

Game four for the Predators is Tuesday night (May 2) in Nashville. Carrie Underwood and Luke Bryan are the previous country artists who have surprised Smashville with performances of the National Anthem during the 2017 NHL playoffs.
