Luke Bryan Sets Nashville Rooftop Gig Before Stanley Cup Final Game 6
Luke Bryan will perform a one-of-a-kind show in downtown Nashville prior to Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final.
Bryan will play an open-air gig from the rooftop of Tootsie's World Famous Orchid Lounge on Sunday (June 11) at 7PM ET. Bryan's four-song set will stream live on NHL.com, the National Hockey League announced on Saturday (June 10).
The Nashville Predators will once again take the ice against the Pittsburgh Penguins at Bridgestone Arena. The Penguins are leading the Predators three games to two after five games in the Stanley Cup Final. If the Penguins win Game 6, they will take the Stanley Cup. If the Predators win, they will travel to Pittsburgh on Wednesday (June 14) to decide the series in Game 7.
"We wanted to come up with a way to cap off the Predators’ last home game of the 2017 Stanley Cup Final in the most unique and memorable way," NHL Content Officer and Executive Vice President Steve Mayer states. "To have Preds fan Luke Bryan in one of Nashville’s renowned locations will mark an incredible and unforgettable start to Game 6."
Country's Best Anthem Singer? You Decide!
Bryan's show will also air live on video screens on Lower Broadway in Nashville, as well as outside and inside of Bridgestone Arena. One song from the gig will air as part of the Game 6 broadcast on NBC, Sportsnet, CBC and TVA Sports, and the NHL Network is also set to broadcast snippets of Bryan’s show during its pre-game coverage.
Bryan previously sang the National Anthem before Game 4 of the Stanley Cup playoffs in April, joining an exclusive roster that includes Carrie Underwood, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, Vince Gill, Kelly Clarkson, Keith Urban, Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride and Dierks Bentley. All of those stars have delivered the anthem at home games duing the playoffs and the Stanley Cup Final.
Many other country stars have been showing support for the team as the Predators won their way through the playoffs and into the Final. Of course, Carrie Underwood's husband Mike Fisher is the team captain. Thomas Rhett, Brett Eldredge, Lee Brice, Nashville star Charles Esten and more have been on hand to cheer them on at games or shared their support via social media.
