Madison Rising’s Rock n’ Roll National Anthem – Love It or Hate It? [VIDEO]

Our national anthem, "The Star Spangled Banner" is always played before big sporting event begins. It's considered an honor to sing the national anthem, some performances are great, some are awful, and some are really weird. At the Nationwide Race that took place at Daytona Speedway last Saturday (Feb. 22), the national anthem performance definitely fell in to the third category.

The National Anthem: Should We Sing It Traditionally or With Style? [POLL]

For the last 10 years, six of those in Sedalia, I have played the National Anthem each morning before the show.  It is generally not something I point out nor do I put a lot of pomp and circumstance around it.  I just play it.  Last week, a friend of mine contacted me to tell me that she used my show as a history lesson.

It seems her cousin who is in 6th grade didn't know what our National Anthem was.  He had heard it before my show, but never knew the meaning behind it.  I count this as a pretty big failure on several levels, and I started to think of all the different ways I've heard the song done.

National Anthem Poll

There have been some beautiful renditions of 'The Star Spangled Banner' over the years, both by bands as well as singers.  Whitney Houston and Riccochet's versions are two of my favorites.  Jose Feliciano recently revived his 1968 performance of the piece at an NLCS game.

What did you think?  Should the National Anthem be sung traditionally or with a little bit of flair?

Luke Bryan Performs, Talks National Anthem Controversy on ‘Good Morning America’

Country music reigned supreme and staged a full-scale takeover of NYC on the morning of Friday, July 13. While Zac Brown Band performed on the ‘TODAY‘ show in midtown Manhattan, Luke Bryan commandeered the stage in Central Park for the ‘Good Morning America’ summer concert series. He performed a set consisting of ‘Country Girl (Shake It for Me),’ ‘Drunk on You’ and ‘Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye.’ The gregarious singer did not shy away from talking about the National Anthem controversy at the MLB All-Star Game earlier in the week, either. He wrote words on his hands to ensure that he wouldn’t flub his performance like so many musicians before him have. He was subsequently beaten up a bit for doing so.
