Would You Expect Anything Less from Music City?

We, too, are as bummed as Carrie Underwood that the Nashville Predators’ incredible season has come to a close, once again without the Stanley Cup.

But in true “Smashville” fashion, the team went out on a classy high note, much like they went into games with their star-studded performances of the national anthem during their time in the NHL Playoffs.

Let’s recap the amazing, knock-out performances this season that won each game before the puck even dropped.

After blessing the crowd with an awesome rendition of the anthem, the guys, along with Nashville Mayor David Briley, waved their towels to open the first game of the first round of Western Conference NHL Playoffs against the Colorado Avalanche.

Brad Paisley

Who’s that guitar slinger honoring our country with his rendition of the anthem? Oh, that’s just Brad Paisley. The country star and his guitar performed ahead of game two against the Colorado Avalanche in the first round of the Western Conference NHL Stanley Cup playoffs.

Maren Morris

Sporting her very own custom “Preds” jersey with her gold microphone in hand, Grammy-winning country star Maren Morris belted out the anthem in superb fashion before game five against the Avalanche.

We’ve made it to the second round, with a bluegrass anthem fit for Music City, alright. These two graced the ice to kick off the first game of the second round of the Western Conference during the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs against the Winnipeg Jets.

The Grammy-winner nailed the anthem ahead of the seventh and final game against the Jets May 10th at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.

A few country-star fans are still a little sad over the final loss.

Trisha Yearwood sent her love and support to the team on Twitter, as did Chris Young and David Nail.

We couldn’t agree more and are still happily standing with our Preds. “Fang Fingers” forever!
