Reba McEntire Kicks Off Super Bowl LVIII With Epic Rendition Of The National Anthem


Country music legend Reba McEntire set social media ablaze with an epic rendition of the National Anthem at Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday.

As McEntire was singing, the broadcast cut back and forth between a number of soldiers deployed overseas in South Korea, as well as the Las Vegas dome, which was decorated with the American flag. At one point, Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle could be seen tearing up.

The performance was completed with a military flyover before the two teams met for the coin toss.

McEntire’s rendition with widely met with praise on social media despite some minor audio issues.

“Reba killed it,” wrote ex-NFL punter turned football pundit Pat McAfee.

“Post Malone and Reba McIntrye both killed that. And, by the way, no player in the NFL that I’m aware of still kneels for the anthem. No one here on either team,” said Clay Travis. “It’s pretty amazing how that trend just completely vanished. And how ratings have set all time records since it ended.”

McEntire, a renowned country music artist, has been involved in various performances in sports events. She has been singing the National Anthem since 1974.

The country legend was joined in this year’s Super Bowl lineup by Post Malone, who performed “America The Beautiful,” and Andra Day, who sang “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” sometimes referred to as “the black national anthem.”
During an interview with Good Morning America earlier this year, McEntire shared her process on preparing for such a high-profile performance. “You just warm up like you do a concert and sing it about five or six times and get in there and do it,” she said.
