And then there were four.
After advancing through the preliminary rounds of the search to find the Nashville Predators next national anthem singer, 11 finalists made their way to Bridgestone Arena on Aug. 24 to belt out the American and Canadian anthems under the bright lights.
Judged by a panel of local media personalities and Preds broadcasters, four stood out above the rest, earning the right to perform the national anthem at one of Nashville's four home preseason games in September. From there, you, the fans, will vote online to determine who will take to the ice before the puck is dropped this season.
Congratulations are in order for Tamica Harris, Cathy Mullins, Katie Ohh and Keesha Rainey, the four finalists who will be vying for the final chance to join the Smashville family.
Get to know the finalists below, and stay tuned throughout the preseason as the voting process begins.
