Country supergroup Lady Antebellum had their national anthem performance ready to go ahead of the Nashville Predators vs. Winnipeg Jets playoff game Saturday night, but it didn’t come out quite how they expected. Everything was going smoothly to start the anthem. Players and fans alike were enjoying the anthem, but then something happened. Something that no one expected nor would wish on anyone singing the anthem ahead of a big game or event. One of the singers (Charles Kelley) forgot the words.
Social media users poked fun at the group, tweeting: “Lady Antebellum ‘personalizing’ the national anthem with a brief forgetting of the lyrics. Oops.”
“Lady Antebellum just messed up the words to the American anthem in Nashville. Unbelievable,” tweeted another person. “You had one job!” wrote Twitter user Kelvin Goertzen.
Lady Antebellum took to Twitter to express regret for the error, tweeting: “Welp. We’re human too y’all. We’re still rooting for ya Preds!!!”
Despite the good luck tweet, the Predators lost to the Jets 6-2 in Game 5.
