The Nashville Predators have been looking for a National Anthem singer, and they’ve requested the public’s help!
All of Smashville has been called on to help find the singer who will debut during the 2017-2018 season.
Officials said fans can submit entries online Wednesday, August 2 through Sunday, August 13.
Ten finalists will then be chosen to perform in front of an audience and celebrity judges.
From there, the top four will move on to the final round, which will include performing during the Preds’ preseason games.
The singer that gets the most votes at the end of the preseason will be chosen to perform at select home games throughout the season.
Reports stated the second and third place finalists will act as fill-in singers when needed.
“Turning the selection process over to Music City and the Citizens of SMASHVILLE was an easy decision to make,” Nashville Predators President and CEO Sean Henry said. “From the enhancements inside Bridgestone Arena each year, to the length of our Season-Ticket Citizenships, and now to their involvement in these upcoming tryouts, our loyal fanbase continues to make us a better organization, one that wouldn’t have its successes or achievements without Smashville’s support.”
“The Smashville community reaches far beyond Middle Tennessee – just as our anthem singer does – and the input from our loyal fanbase guarantees that inside Bridgestone Arena and on television screens across the United States, our new singer will be a household staple alongside the Western Conference Champion Nashville Predators,” Nashville Predators Executive Vice President and CRO Chris Junghans said. “Interest in our team is at a fever pitch and we look forward to using our platform to help showcase the winning artist.”
