Rumor Has It Martina McBride Will Sing the National Anthem at Stanley Cup Game 3
Martina McBride may be the next country superstar in line to perform the National Anthem at a Nashville Predators game.
Suspicion was stirred when McBride's daughter Delaney posted a photo on her personal Facebook page of her dad with the Stanley Cup, writing, "When your dad gets to hang with the Stanley Cup? Oh and Tina is singing the anthem on Saturday. LOOK OUT," according to the Tennessean. While it is not confirmed that McBride will take the ice to sing the anthem, the post does make a strong case for it.
Stars Unite for Their Country ... and the Nashville Predators
The Predators will face off against the Pittsburgh Penguins in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Final on Saturday (June 3). It's a home game at Bridgestone Arena for the Preds, and they're sure to have celebrity support on hand. If McBride does sing the "Star Spangled Banner," she'll be ninth country superstar to do so, following Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, Vince Gill, Kelly Clarkson, Keith Urban and Trisha Yearwood.
Fellow country legend Alan Jackson will also show off his Predators pride before the game, playing a free concert outside of Bridgestone at the corner of Fifth Ave and Broadway. “This is an exciting time for the Predators and the city of Nashville. As a fan, I’m proud to be included in their road to the Stanley Cup,” the legend says.
Countless country stars have been showing support for the home team as the team advanced their way through the playoffs and into the Stanley Cup Final. Dierks Bentley is an avid fan, along with Underwood, whose husband Mike Fisher is captain of the team. Other stars who've publicly cheered on the Preds? Thomas Rhett, Brett Eldredge and Lee Brice.
