Wow a bunch of experts about how the national anthem should be sung...

Does it need to be sung just like your did it? Is that the problem.

Great  she gets another opportunity to butcher the National Anthem again. Country singers should be the only artist invited to sing the National Anthem, they're the only ones who seem to understand it's not about them.

Another occasion to use my "Mute" button. If ever there was an overrated singer....she's it.  Not interested in what she has to screech out next as she loves the sound of her own howl.
