Rascal Flatts Nailed the National Anthem Before First Nashville Predators Playoff Game


As promised, there were big surprises inside of Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena before the first Stanley Cup Playoff game between the Nashville Predators and Colorado Avalanche.

First, the Preds unveiled a new catfish tank with a fish named Gill (probably after Vince, probably a play on words) and another fish named Ben will be added soon. But, that wasn’t all.


Prior to the puck dropping Rascal Flatts took the ice to deliver a melting rendition of the National Anthem with Gary LeVox handling most of the singing duties before Joe Don Rooney and Jay DeMarcus stepped in on harmonies.

During the Preds’ playoff run to the Stanley Cup Finals last year, Carrie Underwood kicked off the tradition of having a surprise, A-list Nashvillian sing the Anthem.

The Preds won 5-2.
