Carrie Underwood showed up to support the Nashville Predators (and husband Mike Fisher) and surprised the crowd by performing the National Anthem before Game 2 of the second round Stanley Cup Playoffs series against Winnipeg at Bridgestone Arena Sunday (April 29th). She must have been a good luck charm, since the Preds bounced back from a loss to the Jets on Friday with a thrilling 5-4 double overtime win on Sunday to tie the series 1-1.

Dierks Bentley teamed up with bluegrass legend Del McCoury to perform the Anthem prior to Game 1 on Friday.
Already this season of playoffs has seen Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley and Maren Morris performing the anthem in the first round against Colorado.
Last year was unprecedented with the Preds in the Stanley Cup Finals. Dierks Bentley, Lady Antebellum, Keith Urban, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Little Big Town, Trisha Yearwood, Kelly Clarkson, Martina McBride and Faith Hill were the surprise Anthem performers.
