Trisha Yearwood Sings National Anthem for Predators Playoff Game [WATCH]
— Rob Taub (@RTaub_) May 23, 2017
Trisha Yearwood performed the National Anthem during the National Predators Stanley Cup Playoffs Western Conference Final game vs. the Anaheim Ducks on Monday night (May 22). Readers can press play above to watch Yearwood's performance.
Just before Yearwood's National Anthem performance, her husband, Garth Brooks, tweeted out a photo of a younger Yearwood (and a younger Brooks) posing for a photo in a Preds jersey.
"Fan since Day 1, singing the National Anthem right now!" Brooks writes. "I LOVE this woman!!!!"
The Nashville Predators’ National Anthem singers during the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs have, thus far, all been country stars: Carrie Underwood and Luke Bryan sang the Anthem during the Preds’ two home Round 1 playoff games, while Little Big Town, Vince Gill and his daughters Jenny and Corinna and Lady Antebellum sang during Round 2. For Nashville's two other home games in this series, Keith Urban and Kelly Clarkson did the honors.
Prior to Game 6, the Predators were leading their Western Conference Final series vs. Ducks three games to two; a win tonight will advance them to the Stanley Cup Final, while a loss tonight will force a seventh game in the series. The Preds defeated the Chicago Blackhawks four games to none during their first Stanley Cup Playoffs series to advance to Round 2; they then defeated the St. Louis Blues four games to two in that series to advance to Round 3.
Yearwood is currently on the road with Brooks, for his World Tour; in late 2016, she shared that she was working on a new album, which will be her first since 2007. Yearwood is also the host of Trisha's Southern Kitchen on Food Network.
