Reba McEntire kicked off Super Bowl LVIII with a spectacular rendition of The National Anthem.

Reba McEntire captivated audiences with her stirring rendition of the National Anthem at Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday.

As McEntire delivered her performance, the broadcast showcased alternating images of soldiers stationed in South Korea and the American-flag-adorned Las Vegas dome. In a touching moment, Kansas City Chiefs defensive tackle was visibly moved to tears.

Despite some minor audio issues, McEntire’s rendition garnered widespread acclaim on social media. Commentator Clay Travis remarked, “Post Malone and Reba McEntire both nailed it. And, by the way, I haven’t seen any NFL players kneeling for the anthem lately. It’s remarkable how that trend has disappeared, and ratings have hit all-time highs since then.”

McEntire, a celebrated country music icon, has a rich history of performing the National Anthem, dating back to 1974.

This year’s Super Bowl lineup also included Post Malone singing “America The Beautiful” and Andra Day performing “Lift Every Voice and Sing.”

In a previous interview with Good Morning America, McEntire shared her approach to preparing for such high-profile performances: “You warm up like you do for a concert, sing it five or six times, and then you’re ready to go.”
