There is perhaps nothing more inspiring than a great singer performing The Star-Spangled Banner. This weekend, for the 15th anniversary of 9/11, Jennifer Nettles delivered a brilliant rendition of the National Anthem when the University of Tennessee took on Virginia Tech.
From Taste of Country:
The country superstar’s powerful voice boomed through out the stadium, showing her patriotic pride on a very special weekend: the 15th anniversary of September 11. To make the performance even more memorable, fans in the stands were given flip cards to hold up which portrayed a picture of the waving American flag with ‘USA’ spelled out at the end zones.
National pride was felt through out the stands, between the giant American flag at the center of the field and fireworks exploding during “the rocket’s red glare.”
