Attention, Nashville singers…here is your chance to be the next Trisha Yearwood or Martina McBride or Keith Urban or if you’re really lucky, you could be the next Dennis K. Morgan!
From now until Aug. 13, fans can submit their entries. After this time, 10 finalists will be invited to perform in front of a live audience and celebrity judges, where the top four contestants will move onto the final round – performing during the Nashville Predators’ preseason games.
The top vote-getter at the end of the preseason schedule, will perform at select home games through the 2017-18 season, with the second and third place contestants acting as fill-ins based on availability.
“Turning the selection process over to Music City and the Citizens of Smashville was an easy decision to make,” Nashville Predators President and CEO Sean Henry said. “From the enhancements inside Bridgestone Arena each year, to the length of our Season-Ticket Citizenships, and now to their involvement in these upcoming tryouts, our loyal fanbase continues to make us a better organization, one that wouldn’t have its successes or achievements without Smashville’s support.”
The search starts now and fans can be involved throughout the entire selection process, nearly start to finish, until Oct. 5, the day of the Nashville Predators season opener in Boston.
“The Smashville community reaches far beyond Middle Tennessee – just as our anthem singer does – and the input from our loyal fanbase guarantees that inside Bridgestone Arena and on television screens across the United States, our new singer will be a household staple alongside the Western Conference Champion Nashville Predators,” Nashville Predators Executive Vice President and CRO Chris Junghans said. “Interest in our team is at a fever pitch and we look forward to using our platform to help showcase the winning artist.”
The Preds’ platform made way for international media coverage throughout the 2017 Stanley Cup playoffs of the legendary musical guests who performed the National Anthem before each home playoff game.
