Vote Now: Who Will Perform the National Anthem at Tonight’s Nashville Predators Hockey Game?

The NHL’s Nashville Predators hockey team has another home playoff game tonight (April 2), which probably means another country music star will sing the national anthem.

In Round 1 of the playoffs against the Chicago Blackhawks, Carrie Underwood (April 17) and Luke Bryan (April 20) sang the national anthem before Games 3 and 4, respectively.

In Round 2 against the St. Louis Blues, Little Big Town (April 30) had the honor before Game 3.

Tonight at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, the Preds will take on the Blues in Game 4. But before the puck drops, who will sing the national anthem?

We’ve come up with five possible names—some more likely than others—but now it’s your chance to vote who you think will sing the anthem. By the way, the Preds have won each of their three home playoff games, which means Carrie, Luke and LBT have been good luck. Let’s keep the streak alive.

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.
