As the days tick down to the Super Bowl, some fans may assume that Luke Bryan is starting to feel the pressure about singing the National Anthem prior to the game. But fear not, because the country star is shaking off the nerves by planning out his performance in perfect detail.
Calling in to talk to The Bobby Bones Show about the honor of taking on “The Star-Spangled Banner” prior to the big game, Bryan reassured listeners that he would not be caught lipsyncing whatsoever by fans tuning in. Instead, he’s got his vocal performance on lockdown as he’s decided to put his talents to the a capella test.
“I’m just gonna do it a capella, so there’s no way to…I would never be able to lipsync it in case of a disaster. I mean, and the only disaster would be if I come down with the flu Saturday night,” he told the radio show.
The “Fast” singer will join the ranks of artists like Carrie Underwood, Garth Brooks, The Dixie Chicks and Faith Hill who have also sang the National Anthem before the biggest football game of the season. He’ll also be sticking to his Georgia roots by rooting for the Atlanta Falcons as they take on the New England Patriots for the game.
Tune in to see Bryan perform the Anthem at Super Bowl LI on Sunday, February 5, before the kickoff at 6:30 ET on FOX.
