Watch Carrie Underwood’s Surprise Performance of the National Anthem Before Nashville Predators Hockey Game

Before the Nashville Predators and Chicago Blackhawks took the ice for Game 3 of their playoff series, Carrie Underwood surprised those in attendance by singing the national anthem.

“Please rise and welcome seven-time Grammy winner and longtime Nashville Predators fan Carrie Underwood, as we honor the United States with the singing of the national anthem,” said the Bridgestone Arena announcer as the crowd voiced its approval.

Carrie was decked out in a No. 12 Predators jersey, the same number her husband, Mike Fisher, wears as captain of the Preds.

Carrie also shared a pic and video on Instagram, and she was understandably excited after the Predators won the game in overtime to take a 3–0 lead in the series.

#Smashville has completely gone crazy!!!! 3-0 baby!!! One more! @predsnhl

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

Miranda Lambert is Settling Down and Setting Up Shop

If you’ve been to lower Broadway in Nashville over the last several years, you know country music artist owned honkytonks having been sprouting up all along Music City’s famous strip.

Jason Aldean, John Rich, Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Alan Jackson all already have venues…but now there’s another name being thrown in the mix, and it’s a first!

Miranda Lambert will be the first female country artist to have a downtown venue. Miranda’s place will be located at 308 Broadway, and looks to be named “Miranda Lambert’s Casa Rosa.”

Miranda was perhaps encouraged to move into this new venture by a 2018 Nashville Business Journal poll. When music industry pros were asked, “Which female country star should open a downtown bar?” — Miranda garnered the most votes.

Miranda is partnering with TC Restaurant Group on the new place, and it looks like even more details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
