Reba McEntire to Sing National Anthem at Celebrity Softball Game
Reba McEntire will kick off the 27th Annual City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game with a performance of the National Anthem. The country legend is set to take the field on June 10 at First Tennessee Park before the game.
The annual game will take place during the 2017 CMA Music Festival in Nashville, and proceeds from the game will go to support City of Hope's research and patient care treatments. City of Hope is an independent research and treatment center for cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases.
Tickets to the softball game are currently on sale via Ticketmaster for $15 and $35. While each team's roster will be announced in the coming week, the game will bring together some of country music's biggest talents in the dugout. Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Shania Twain, Brad Paisley, Tim McGraw, Garth Brooks and Vince Gill, among others, have taken to the field in support of City of Hope’s lifesaving mission.
In addition to a Las Vegas residency with Brooks & Dunn, McEntire released her first-ever gospel album Sing It Now: Songs of Faith and Hope earlier this year, which topped multiple charts after its release in February. Sing It Now debuted at No. 1 on both Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and Christian Albums chart, marking it her 13th chart-topping project. She also reached the No. 2 spot on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, selling nearly 55,000 copies.
“This album has been a huge gift to me," McEntire says of Sing It Now. It has helped heal my heart and has let me know I can move forward with faith and hope. I am so thankful to God for His guidance that lead to this moment."
