The Nashville Predators weren't looking just like a million bucks before the 2020 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic, they were looking like Cash.

The Predators walked into the Cotton Bowl in all-black suits, shirts and ties in an nod to late country music legend Johnny Cash.

The entire Nashville roster sported attire like Cash, the legendary country musician known for songs like "Walk the Line" and "Ring of Fire" who was known as "The Man in Black' for his penchant for all-black clothing on stage. 

The Stars also went all out for this year's Winter Classic.

Dallas made a team trip to legendary clothing store Lucchese on Dec. 12 to gear up for the big game, and the players donned cowboy hats, with many players sporting bolo ties and other cowboy-style getup, including the official Winter Classic belt buckle, while walking into the stadium.
