Regular Predators Anthem Singer Not Happy
Fans have been happy to see their favorite country stars kick off Predators home games, but Dennis K. Morgan is not. He's the Preds' regular national anthem singer and recently told The Tennesseean he doesn't like being upstaged by all the famous singers. "I don't blame Carrie Underwood or Luke Bryan or any of the other acts who have performed," he told the newspaper. "I've been as good-natured as I can be. With my closest friends, I've certainly shared my disappointment. But most of the time I'll toe the company line and say, 'Why am I not singing? Because I don't have seven Grammys, I'm not married to the captain, she's a whole lot prettier than me,' that kind of thing and try to leave it at that."
Fair to say the guy is getting pretty beat up on social media. Read more here.
