Lady Antebellum joins the list of Nashville star performers who sang the National Anthem for this year's Stanley Cup Playoffs series at the Bridgestone Arena. Before the Predators took the ice, Charles Kelley started off the song solo and was soon joined by the voices of bandmates Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood.
The three sounded incredible throughout the song, but Kelley encountered rough waters when he skipped ahead on the lyrics. Scott was able to catch him, and soon, the three were singing together in perfect harmony again. Though the mistake was very brief, couch critics can be very unforgiving and many people criticized the trio, so they took to Twitter to own up to the mishap.

Of course, Kelley took it the hardest, tweeting on his personal account, "Sang the anthem a thousand times, sorry for messing up one of the lines. Prob won't sleep tonight now." Hopefully Kelley gives himself a break for the slightly flawed performnace.
So far this year, Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood and Maren Morris have taken on the notoriously difficult song to sing. Country stars will continue to surprise Predators fans with upcoming renditions of "The Star-Spangled Banner" during this playoff season.
