Two of our favorite things (football and Eric Church) are joining forces for what is sure to be a powerful, patriotic moment. The NFL has just announced that country artist Eric Church will have the honors of singing the National Anthem at this year’s Super Bowl.
The Super Bowl LV will take place on February 7, 2021, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. CBS will broadcast the event.
Eric Church shares the announcement this morning on social media, telling fans to tune in at 6 p.m. eastern time to catch the performance by the two artists.
Fans commented on the post with their excitement for Eric Church, saying, “Congratulations Eric, that’s awesome news,” and “That’s amazing!!! Well deserved too.”
The halftime performance will feature by the Grammy award-winning artist, Abel Tesfaye, aka The Weeknd.
