Country Star Luke Bryan will sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" for the third time at an official sporting event and fourth time overall inside a sports venue. He sang in 2008 before the Titans/Browns game on a cold December day with lots of reverb, clocking in at 1:43. Then he opened up the 2012 MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City with a rendition that went exactly two minutes, and drew a bit of criticism, as he had the lyrics written on his hand to avoid missing any words. Bryan was the first person to ever sing the anthem in US Bank Stadium, home of the Minnesota Vikings (and ironically the venue for next year's Super Bowl) to open his concert back on August 20, in a very classic, slow tempo that registered at 2:29. We've seen the last 10 anthems clock in at an average of 1:58, and the last male singer to perform was 10 years ago, when Billy Joel sang at Super Bowl 41 in Miami in 90 seconds. While we've seen many female vocalists draw out the anthem with late vibrato riffs, I expect more of a straightforward approach from the Georgia native. Play this one under.
