You’re probably aware that Luke Bryan has been chosen to sing the National Anthem at Super Bowl 51, which of course is a huge honor. It’s also a hugely nerve-wracking experience. Which is why the last time Luke sang it before a large national audience–at the 2012 MLB All-Star game, he took a small pre-caution in case nerves got to him and he blanked out: he wrote the lyrics on his hand. He took some heat for it, but many others were sympathetic. Better to be safe than sorry, right? But we’re betting this time around, he ain’t gonna need no cheat notes.
