Country Music Shining Bright in the Stanley Cup Play Offs

Country music is representing Nashville well at this year’s Stanley Cup Play Offs. Carrie Underwood and Luke Bryan have both performed the national anthem at Predators home games during round one. Jimi Westbrook, Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman and Phillip Sweet, otherwise know as Little Big Town, brought their signature harmonies to the Predators’ first home game of round two against the St. Louis Blues. But the most memorable anthem so far might belong to country artist Brett Kissel who stepped up to the mic to sing “The Star Spangled Banner” before Game 3 of the NHL Western Conference Second Round between the Anaheim Ducks and the Edmonton Oilers in Edmonton, AB. When he realized the mic wasn’t working in the stadium he didn’t let that stop him, Kissel encouraged the fans to join him in singing the anthem, which resulted in a full stadium of fans, both American and Canadian, singing the anthem together. You can watch the moment here on NHL’s Twitter. We’re all North Americans! The Preds and the Blues will face off again on tonight (May 2). Go Preds!
