Smashville is alive and well! The Nashville Predators beat out the St. Louis Blues, 3-1, in Game Six to win the series by a 4-2 count. The Preds now advance to the NHL’s Western Conference Finals of the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time in franchise history and will face off against the winner of the Anaheim Ducks vs. the Edmonton Oilers match-up.
Before the hitting the ice and clinching victory in front of a home crowd, Nashville Predators Captain Mike Fisher got his spirits boosted by his #1 fan, 2-year-old son Isaiah. This precious father-son moment totally melted wife Carrie Underwood’s heart.
Country music trio Lady Antebellum performed the National Anthem prior to the start of the game. Enjoy Charles Kelley, Hillary Scott, and Dave Haywood belting out “The Star-Spangled Banner” below!
Speaking of Lady Antebellum, their new album, Heart Break, is slated for release on June 9th. The popular country music group’s You Look Good World Tour kicks off on May 26th in Bakersfield, California with opening acts Kelsea Ballerini and Brett Young on board.
The Nashville Predators haven’t had to look far to find top-notch national anthem performers. Country music stars Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Little Big Town, and Vince Gill alongside his daughters Jenny and Corinna have all had the honor of singing the patriotic tune.
Lady A might just be the Preds’ lucky charm, according to Charles Kelley.
I told you @ladyantebellum is good luck! @PredsNHL

We wish the Nashville Predators the best as they continue their path to the ultimate prize— the Stanley Cup. Since the Preds’ debut in 1998, they have made the Stanley Cup Playoffs ten times.
