NFL Fans Say A Lot After It's Announced, Stapleton Is Singing the Anthem

The NFL, Roc Nation, and Apple Music confirmed Rihanna's halftime show in September, but fans have been eager to see who will perform pregame.

We're delighted to see a major country music star.

Babyface, Sheryl Lee Ralph, and Chris Stapleton will perform "America the Beautiful," "Lift Every Voice and Sing," and the National Anthem, respectively.

The "Tennessee Whiskey" singer, famed for his bluesy-rock country, has won 8 Grammys, 10 ACMs, and 14 CMAs.

However, other football fans didn't identify the name and made comments like

"Could someone tell me I'm not the only one who does not know any of these folks," "Who?who? and who?" and "This sounds missable."

But, delighted country music fans tweeted, "Chris Stapleton's national anthem will not be equaled," on the NFL Instagram account.
