LAS VEGAS, NEVADA – Country music legend, Reba McEntire, is set to perform the national anthem at the 2024 Super Bowl on Sunday, Feb. 11, as the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers face off. This marks McEntire’s first Super Bowl performance, despite having a special history with the song. Fifty years ago, she was discovered as a singer at the 1974 National Finals Rodeo in Oklahoma when she sang the national anthem. Since then, she has performed the anthem at numerous events, making this upcoming performance even more noteworthy.
McEntire expressed her honor at being part of such a historic event, as the Super Bowl comes to Las Vegas for the first time. In an interview with the hosts of “CBS Mornings,” she shared insights into her preparation for the performance, detailing her warm-up routine and how the opportunity was presented to her by her manager and boyfriend. The singer’s excitement for the event is evident, especially as she looks forward to gracing the stage of one of the most-watched sporting events in the world.
In addition to McEntire’s performance, Post Malone will be singing “America the Beautiful,” and Andra Day will be singing “Lift Every Voice and Sing” during the pregame. The halftime show will feature Usher, adding to the star-studded lineup for the event. Last year, Chris Stapleton sang the national anthem at the Super Bowl, showing a tradition of having esteemed artists perform at this prestigious event.
The 2024 Super Bowl will be broadcast on CBS and Nickelodeon, as well as streaming on Paramount+, from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. With kickoff scheduled for 6:30 p.m. ET, fans from around the world can tune in to witness the electrifying performances and the thrilling showdown between the Chiefs and the 49ers.
