Country Artists Get Loud in Smashville

Alan Jackson, Martina McBride, Nicole Kidman, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban Watch Nashville Predators Win First Stanley Cup Final Home Game

It got loud in Smashville on Saturday (June 3) when the Nashville Predators beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-1 in their first Stanley Cup Final home game at the Bridgestone Arena.

According to the Tennessean, applause from the standing room only crowd of 17,283 fans was thunderous. When Craig Smith scored the Preds’ fourth goal of the game with 15:06 remaining, the noise level reached 110.1 decibels. Just to give an idea of how loud that is, the noise level of a thunder clap is 120 decibels, and a military jet takeoff is 130 decibels.

Adding to that vocal power was Martina McBride, who sang the National Anthem.

Carrie Underwood continued to get wild in a suite with friends to DJ Khaled’s “All I Do Is Win.”

Keith Urban and his wife Nicole Kidman were also there in their custom Preds gear.

Outside the Bridgestone, Jackson performed a free pre-game concert on Lower Broadway where thousands more gathered outside to watch the historic game on giant video screens after the show. Nashville’s WTVF-TV reports the fire marshall had to clear the Bridgestone Arena plaza 35 minutes before the puck drop for safety reasons because it was packed with fans.
