Sara Evans was especially excited to sing the national anthem Thursday night — because it was her fourth wedding anniversary. Evans is married to former Alabama star quarterback Jay Barker.
“We decided that it would be a perfect date night to come sing the anthem — just a little bit of work — and then watch the game,” Evans said.
Evans hinted before her performance that she liked to drag out certain notes to “try to show off,” and she definitely did that. Her anthem was much longer than Jessica Sanchez's was on Tuesday night. Beautifully sung, but a smidgen over the top.
