Country Artists Who Have Performed During the Super Bowl [PICTURES]

It may not seem as though country music has taken center stage at the Super Bowl all that often, but throughout the big game’s history, more than a dozen of the genre’s artists have performed during pre-game festivities and at halftime.

Super Bowl organizers have more often selected country stars to sing the National Anthem (or, occasionally, “America the Beautiful”) before the game’s kickoff. Over the years, everyone from Charley Pride to Carrie Underwood has helped attendees and viewers feel some patriotic pride; in 2017, that’ll be Luke Bryan’s job.

Halftime shows, meanwhile, have largely favored pop and rock acts over country ones, but a few of the genre’s stars have gotten to take that important stage. Kid Rock, Shania Twain and Doug Kershaw have all been part of previous Super Bowl halftime performances — but country musicĀ really got its (half)time to shine in 1994.
