Reba McEntire receives mixed reactions after Super Bowl national anthem performance

During Sunday night’s Super Bowl, Reba McEntire delivered a memorable and unforgettable moment in front of the crowd at Allegiant Stadium in Paradise, Nevada.
Her magical rendition of ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’ had the audience cheering, and us viewers at home were also left with goosebumps. Chris Jones, the Kansas City Chiefs’ defensive lineman, was visibly moved by the moment and tears began to flow.

It was truly a performance to remember by the three-time Grammy winner – and what we all needed to start the game off!
Reba McEntire’s national anthem performance
As we know, there’s no bigger stage than belting out the anthem before the opening kickoff at the Super Bowl, and considering Chris Stapleton’s fantastic rendition last year, the expectations were sky-high for the legendary Oklahoma native.
The applause was thunderous once Reba concluded, setting a splendid tone for the game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers.
A month ago, the 68-year-old Reba revealed some intriguing details about her performance. In an interview with CBS Mornings, the country star said that she accepted the invitation to sing the national anthem for a specific reason.
”I got the news from my manager…he said they wanted me to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl, and I said, ‘Oh my gosh, well, let me think about that,’” McEntire recalled. ”And Rex Linn, my boyfriend, who is a huge football fan, he said, ‘Yes! She’ll do it! Absolutely!”
