Jennifer Nettles will have the honor of singing the national anthem before the start of the 145th Kentucky Derby on May 4.
Jennifer follows in the hallowed hoofprints of previous country stars who have performed the anthem at the Derby, including Lady Antebellum (2016), Jo Dee Messina (2014), Martina McBride (2013), Rascal Flatts (2010) and more.
Jennifer’s performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner” will be broadcast live on NBC and take place in front of approximately 160,000 fans attending the 2019 Kentucky Derby. Jennifer will perform the anthem in the Kentucky Derby Winner’s Circle just after 5 p.m. ET, immediately prior to the race.
