The Nashville Predators hockey team has an advantage no other sports team has... a whole treasure-trove of country stars readily available to sing the National Anthem before their games. 

They're really taking advantage of that perk in the playoffs, too. Earlier in the week, Carrie Underwood, whose husband plays on the team, sang the National Anthem. 

Last night, they brought out the biggest star in country music right now... Luke Bryan. 

The strategy seems to be working. The Predators beat the Blackhawks 4-1 last night, completing a four-game sweep in the first round of the playoffs.
