Hear Billy Ray Cyrus’ Predators Cheer, ‘Bring the Stanley Cup to Tennessee’
Billy Ray Cyrus wants the cup! The country singer has written a song called "Bring the Stanley Cup to Tennessee" in honor of Nashville's hockey team, the Predators making it to the Stanley Cup Finals.
"Bring the Stanley Cup to Tennessee" was written the night before the Predators returned to Smashville for their first home game of the 2017 Finals. Backed by an acoustic guitar and a female vocalist, Cyrus reveals massive pride for the Nashville Predators, singing, "Bring the Stanley Cup to Tennessee / That'll mean the world to fans like me."
Stars Unite for Their Country ... and the Nashville Predators
Of course, he's far from the only country artist who's cheering on the team in their goal to bring home the cup. During an appearance as co-host on Today, Luke Bryan raved about the team.
"I’ll tell you, the Predators thing is the neatest thing," Bryan told Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb. "It’s the most amazing sports moment I’ve ever been a part of when you see the energy that’s going on around Nashville.”
Bryan previously sang the National Anthem at a playoffs home game and is just one artist on a long list of country performers to take the ice before the big game. Dierks Bentley, Carrie Underwood, Martina McBride, Vince Gill, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum and Trisha Yearwood are a few of others who've delivered a rendition of the National Anthem prior games at Bridgestone Arena.
While many artists are longtime fans of the Predators, you couldn't find a more diehard fan than Underwood, whose husband Mike Fisher is captain of the team.
