NASHVILLE -- Country music band Lady Antebellum continued the string of high-profile singers of the national anthem before Stanley Cup Playoff games at Bridgestone Arena during the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs on Sunday.
The three-piece band, which has won seven Grammy Awards, got the home crowd fired up with their version of the "Star-Spangled Banner" before Game 6 of the Western Conference Second Round against the St. Louis Blues.
The Predators lead the best-of-7 series 3-1 and will advance to the Western Conference Final for the first time with a win.
The celebrity anthem singer is a tradition here but reached a new level at the start of the postseason when Carrie Underwood was the surprise anthem singer before Game 3 of the first round against the Chicago Blackhawks.
It was the first time Underwood, married to Predators captain Mike Fisher, performed the national anthem at a Predators game. She has won seven Grammy Awards and is among the best-known singers of her generation.
Before Game 4 against the Blackhawks, country music star Luke Bryan, the 2015 Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year, handled anthem duties.
Bryan played a concert at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday and was joined by Underwood for a song. He wore a Predators baseball hat and Underwood had on a blue Predators t-shirt with her husband's name and No. 12 on it.
Little Big Town, a two-time Grammy Award winner, sang the "Star-Spangled Banner" before Game 3 of the second round. Before Game 4, country music legend Vince Gill, joined by his daughters Jenny and Corrina, performed. Gill, who wore a Roman Josi Predators home jersey, has supported the Predators since their inception in 1997 and is a longtime season-ticket holder.
