Singing the Super Bowl National Anthem is a big deal. We found out yesterday that this year at Super Bowl 57 Chris Stapleton will be singing the National Anthem. He’s not the first country artist who has had that honor though. There have been several country artists who have sung at the big game.

You have a ton of eyes on you. There can be a lot of pressure singing the National Anthem, especially on a stage as big as that one. It’s a national platform. The late great Charley Pride sang at Super Bowl 8 back in the 1970s. Faith Hill has done it twice, at Super Bowl 34 and she sang “America The Beautiful” at Super Bowl 43.

I have no doubt that Chris Stapleton will kill it, and he’ll be one of the things we’re talking about the morning after the game. I’ll bet that there are some artists that you forgot were at the big game. Let me give you a little bit of a refresher.
