More celebrities joined in on the excitement in Smashville on Sunday afternoon, as the Nashville Predators prevailed 3-1 to earn their seventh consecutive win at home in the playoffs.

Bridgestone Arena is quickly earning the reputation as the place to be this spring, and the fun doesn't show any sign of slowing down.

First, country music stars, Little Big Town, performed the National Anthem (video above), joining Carrie Underwood and Luke Bryan as singers who have kicked off games in the postseason.

Tennessee Titans running back DeMarco Murray then fired up the Preds' seventh man by serving as the Game Three towel waiver.
