- Now ladies and gentlemen, please rise and kindly remove your hats for our nation's colors. Presented tonight by the United States Marine Corps color guard, from the Los Angeles recruiting station. Now fans, please remain standing and join in the singing of our national anthem. Lead tonight by a critically acclaimed singer and songwriter, please welcome three time Grammy award winner, Brad Paisley!
- (SINGING) Oh, say can you see by the dawn's early light? What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming. Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, o'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming. And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there. Oh say does that Star Spangled banner yet wave? O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
