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

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
