Country artists who were at the Nashville Predators’ Stanley Cup playoff game against the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday (May 16) got swept up in Smashville pandemonium.
Keith Urban sang the National Anthem on the ice before the home game at the Bridgestone Arena. And when the NHL asked what the performance meant to him, he said, “It’s a huge honor. For all the years I’ve lived here, [it] was one of the proudest moments of my life.”
Spotted at the Bridgestone Arena to watch the Preds beat the Ducks 2-1 were Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Kip Moore, Chase Rice, Carrie Underwood and Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild and Phillip Sweet.
Cody Alan represented CMT Hot 20 Countdown in the Predators’ Zamboni parade.
The Preds continue their Stanley Cup playoffs against the Ducks on Thursday (May 18) in Nashville.
