Country music's rising star, Mickey Guyton, will sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” at this year’s Super Bowl LVI.
Guyton confirmed the news with a tweet on Tuesday (February 1), writing, “I am shook, I am grateful, I am praise dancing.” The Super Bowl starts at 6:30pm ET on February 13 on NBC, with the Los Angeles Rams facing off against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Guyton is no newcomer to singing the National Anthem. In fact, the country star last sang Francis Scott Key's masterpiece back in May 2021 for the National Memorial Day Concert in Washington D.C. Rolling Stone notes Guyton was inspired to start singing after watching LeAnn Rimes perform “The Star-Spangled Banner” before a baseball game.
In addition to Guyton’s performance, the Super Bowl pre-game will feature Jhené Aiko singing “America the Beautiful,” Mary Mary performing “Lift Every Voice and Sing” with Yola, and Zedd serving as the pre-game DJ. And of course, Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar will be handling what promises to be an epic halftime show.
In other Mickey Guyton news, the singer-songwriter released her debut full-length LP, Remember Her Name, last year. The record is up for a Best Country Album Grammy, and its title track is nominated for Best Country Song and Best Country Solo performance.
