It's hard to believe that just around the corner, Super Bowl LVIII will be played at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. When we think of the Super Bowl, we always talk about the game, the halftime performance, the food at your Super Bowl party and of course the commercials that get fans excited and hyped.
But, this game always has a great rendition of the National Anthem that tends to bring the players, coaches and fans to tears. This year's performance should be no different. So, who will be kicking things off ahead of the 49ers vs. Chiefs showdown?
Reba McEntire is this year's Super Bowl halftime performer
Even though Usher has been the main talk about being this year's halftime performer at the big game, legendary country music singer Reba McEntire is set to perform this year's National Anthem succeeding fellow country star Chris Stapelton who performed the anthem last year.
The 68-year-old McEntire has been dubbed "The Queen of Country," has sold more than 75 million albums worldwide and since the 1970s, has placed over 100 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Chart. That's impressive and 25 of her singles have also reached No. 1 on the charts.
McEntire has also been featured as one of the coaches on the television show, "The Voice." So, it is safe to say that we should be expecting another great National Anthem performance with the legendary McEntire kicking things off for us at the Super Bowl on Feb. 11.
It should set the tone for what should be a great showdown between Kansas City and San Francisco. Yup, fans can't wait for that meeting to arrive. Patrick Mahomes is hoping to bring home his third Lombardi Trophy, while Brock Purdy is ready to try and close out the 2023 season in style.
