The Super Bowl is a time for celebration, and this year it was made even more special by the presence of country singer Chris Stapleton. Before the highly anticipated match between the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles officially kicked off, Chris took centerstage on the football field to belt out his version of the National Anthem. Dressed in his signature attire with dark sunglasses, the Kentucky native played his guitar and sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” for athletes and fans at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.
Chris’s performance of the National Anthem was met with overwhelming praise from fans. His soulful rendition of the song was a perfect way to kick off the big game. It was a reminder of the power of music and how it can bring people together.
Chris joins an impressive roster of country singers who have been tapped to perform the historic song in the past, including Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, and Mickey Guyton. The 2023 Super Bowl pregame lineup also featured appearances by Abbott Elementary actress Sheryl Lee Ralph who performed “Lift Every Voice and Sing” and R&B Babyface who sang “America the Beautiful.”

He started off in the country music sphere as a songwriter before he made a memorable appearance with Justin Timberlake at the 2015 Country Music Awards. After the duet played an electrifying medley of Chris’ “Tennessee Whiskey” and Justin’s “Drink You Away,” the country music artist rose to instant fame. Nearly a decade later, Chris has now taken home 16 CMAs wins, eight Grammy Awards, 10 Academy of Country Music Awards, plus many more titles.
