The Nashville Predators have made it to the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and that only means one thing— country’s A-list stars will take to the ice to perform the national anthem during home games.
Brad Paisley was the second country artist this season, to do the honors. He followed Rascal Flatts who sang the anthem prior to game 1.
The three-time Grammy winner brought along his guitar to accompany him during the anthem. The 45-year-old was obviously a good luck charm, because the Preds defeated the Colorado Avalanche 5-4. Nashville will next head to Denver for the game 3 and 4, before returning home for game 5, if necessary. The Predators have 2-0 lead in the series.
Brad took to Instagram to share his big moment. “I got this beautiful towel, catfish in the cooler, let’s do this! #GoPreds,” he wrote in the caption.
In 2017 Nashville’s hockey team made it all the way to game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals—during which time we got to see artists such as Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Keith Urban, Kelly Clarkson, Luke Bryan,Little Big Town, Vince Gill, Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride, Faith Hill and Dierks Bentley perform..
First Rascal Flatts, followed by Brad Paisley, we can’t wait to see who’s next. Go Preds!
