After Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill, Dierks Bentley might be the biggest Nashville Predators fan you know (one time he left a Preds game, surprised Thomas Rhett during a show down the street and went back to the game). And the longtime season ticket holder finally got his shot to sing the National Anthem in front of 17,000 of his closest friends, plus friends like Carrie and Keith Urban, too.
Dierks took the ice before game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals, where his beloved Preds tied up the series with the Pittsburgh Penguins, 2-2. Dierks’ Anthem performance was heartfelt and very Dierks– a little gravely and full of passion.
Note: I correctly predicted Dierks as the singer for game 4 weeks ago.
