Carrie Underwood received a “thanks but no thanks” response from the Vegas Golden Knights.
After the Nashville Predators were eliminated from NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs, the wife of the team’s Mike Fisher threw her support behind the hockey team from Sin City and even offered to sing the National Anthem during Western Conference Finals.
The Golden Knights officials issued a statement politely declining Carrie’s singing services.
“We are very flattered by the offer but we do not plan on making any changes to our previously scheduled anthem singer lineup at this time,” the statement reads per the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “This lineup includes musicians who have previously performed at our home games as well as additional entertainers with residencies or ties to Las Vegas that we have been in touch with throughout the year.”
Carnell Johnson, The Venetian gondolier known as “Golden Pipes, has been the team’s chosen anthem singer during the playoffs, while The Mirage headliner Terry Fator and keyboard legend Paul Shaffer—just to name a few—have also taken the anthem honors in Las Vegas.
As it stands, the Knights are tied with the Winnipeg Jets, 1-1, in the seven-game series with Game 3 scheduled for tonight (May 16) in Las Vegas.
