There's nothing better than the excitement of the NHL Stanley Cup Finals. Nashville Predator hockey is something special to experience and it's exciting to see which country artist will be performing the National Anthem before the puck drops!

Although my Detroit Red Wings aren't in the finals this year, I've climbed aboard the Nashville Predator's train and it's been fun to watch! I've been to a Predator's hockey game in Nashville in the past and the fans SHOW up big time and so do the country music artists who sing the National Anthem. I thought Dierks Bentley sounded great last night, but social media lit up overnight with many thinking his rendition didn't hit the mark. You can watch it here in case you missed it. What do you think?

Did I mention that he was supposed to be on vocal rest, but didn't want to miss the chance to sing for his hometown team!

Some agreed with me!
