Zac Brown Band, BCS Championship Game: Group to Sing National Anthem Before Alabama & Notre Dame Face Off
No matter if they’re pulling for the Tide or the Fighting Irish, fans watching Monday’s (Jan. 7) BCS National Championship game are in for a treat. Zac Brown Band has been tapped to perform the national anthem at the big game in Miami.
Four of the band’s seven members — Zac Brown, Clay Cook, Jimmy De Martini and John Driskell Hopkins — will take the mic before No. 1 Notre Dame takes on No. 2 Alabama in the highest bowl in college football. With their trademark harmonies, ZBB is a fantastic pick to sing the national anthem, as they’ve proven at several sporting events over the years, including the 2011 NFC divisional playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and the band’s home team, the Atlanta Falcons. (Watch that performance below.)
