Country superstars cheered on football’s biggest stars this weekend at Super Bowl LII.
Blake Shelton, Kelsea Ballerini, Morgan Evans and a bevy of big names of country converged in Minneapolis to see the Philadelphia Eagles take on the five-time Super Bowl champion New England Patriots.
In addition to Blake, Kelsea and Morgan, Maren Morris, Ryan Hurd and Florida Georgia Line saw the Big Game in person, while FGL, Zac Brown Band and Darius Rucker performed during pre-Super Bowl festivities.
Carrie Underwood opened the game with a pre-recorded music video for “The Champion,” the official song of Super Bowl LII and NBC’s upcoming coverage of the Winter Olympics.
Stars like Jason Aldean and Lindsay Ell watched the game from home and tweeted along on social media, responding to Justin Timberlake’s Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show performance and the Big Game alike.
Additional celebrities in attendance included Gwen Stefani, Bradley Cooper, Miles Teller, Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez, Gisele Bundchen, Vice President Joe Biden, Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Hart, Dax Shepard and more.
After a nail-biting four quarters, the Eagles took the win, 41-33, to secure the team's first-ever Super Bowl championship.
