Reba McEntire’s Super Bowl LVIII performance of The National Anthem was simply spectacular

Reba McEntire delivered a captivating rendition of the National Anthem at Super Bowl LVIII, evoking strong emotions from audiences. As she sang, the broadcast alternated between images of soldiers in South Korea and the American-flag-adorned Las Vegas dome, creating a poignant atmosphere. Despite minor audio issues, McEntire’s performance received widespread praise on social media.

Commentator Clay Travis praised both McEntire and Post Malone for their stellar performances, noting the absence of NFL players kneeling for the anthem and the subsequent rise in ratings. McEntire, a renowned country music icon, has a long history of performing the anthem, dating back to 1974. The Super Bowl lineup also featured Post Malone singing “America The Beautiful” and Andra Day performing “Lift Every Voice and Sing.” In a previous interview, McEntire shared her preparation routine for such high-profile performances, emphasizing the importance of warming up and practicing multiple times.
