Walking out onto the field, this 62-year-old country queen belted out one of the best performances of the National Anthem we’ve heard in recent history.
Taking to the center of Nashville’s First Tennessee Park for the annual City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game, Reba McEntire blew everyone away with her stunning country-tinged performance of “The Star Spangled Banner”.
The annual softball game is held during CMA Music Fest in the heart of Nashville and this year, fellow country singer Sara Evans followed up Reba’s impressive performance with a singalong to “Take Me Out To The Ballgame”.
Players for this year’s game included country singer Jessie James Decker and her NFL star husband, Eric Decker, Kellie Pickler, Aaron Watson, Trent Harmon, Lauren Alaina, Craig Morgan, Billy Ray Cyrus, and The Property Brothers, Jonathan and Drew Scott among others. They played in this annual fundraiser for City of Hope which helps further research and treatments for cancer, diabetes, and other critical diseases.
