There’s some real star power within the Nashville Predators, and we aren’t talking about P.K. Subban.

Throughout their Stanley Cup playoff run, the Predators have had a fair handful of celebrities and stars make appearances during their home games at Bridgestone Arena. There have been so many, in fact, that we decided to list them all here to see how far this grows as the Predators continue to roll through the playoffs.

Carrie Underwood

Ah, the most well-known Predators fan celebrity. Underwood is married to Predators captain Mike Fisher, and has been a notable fan of the team for years. She made a surprise appearance to sing the “Star Spangled Banner” back in Round 1 against Chicago.

Keith Urban

This other mega country star sang the national anthem for the Predators in the Conference Finals, marking the start of Nashville’s home stretch in Round 3.

And hey actress Nicole Kidman, Urban’s wife, joined him in celebrating a Predators goal in the Stanley Cup Final!


The alternative rock band from our childhoods — or at least mine anyway — made an appearance the week of their newest album release and danced along to DMX.

The Nashville band also stopped by earlier in the season and lead singer Hayley Williams has been a supporter of the Predators in the past.

Dak Prescott

The quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys broke out his Predators swag for Round 2.

The Tennessee Titans

Marcus Mariota and his offensive linemen from the Titans shotgunned beer before Game 3 against the Ducks.

Kelly Clarkson

The former American Idol winner got the crowd rocking before Game 4 of the Conference Finals with her rendition of the national anthem.

Kings of Leon

This Nashville-born rock band got the crowd pumped up before Game 4 against the Ducks and chugged some beer, though not as successfully as the Titans.

Trisha Yearwood and Eddie George

The country music singer and Food Network star sung the national anthem for Game 6 of the Western Conference Final, and she was joined by former Tennessee Titans running back Eddie George.

Martina McBride

The country music singer held the honor of being the Predators Game 3 anthem singer for the Stanley Cup Final.

Considering there is at least one more Predators game to be played at home, we can’t help but wonder who would show up next. Taylor Swift and Young Buck? Dolly Parton? The possibilities are endless!
