The country music group Lady Antebellum, who formed in Nashville, sang the National Anthem prior to Game 5 of the Jets-Predators series. The group would take the first L of the night when they screwed up the anthem.
#ladyantebellum sounded great! Good thing the words to the American national anthem don’t matter. #Jets #NashvillePredators #NHLPlayoffs2018 #uspoli #Country #music pic.twitter.com/yCZgWzdWFJ

Following the botched National Anthem, Lady Antebellum took to Twitter to apologize. But the damage had been done.
“Welp. We’re human too y’all We’re still rooting for ya Preds!!! #smashville“

The Predators lost the game 6-2 and are now down in the series three games to two. You can’t win a game after this kind of start.
If the series makes it to Game 7, the Predators better get Carrie Underwood back out there and hope she can save their season.
