Happy Monday, y’all.

Today for the Song of the Week, we have Chris Stapleton’s performance of the “Star-Spangled Banner” from Super Bowl LVII in February.

It was extremely well-received by fans across the country, which is no small feat, considering that the National Anthem is a notoriously hard song to sing.

But of course, it is Chris Stapleton we’re talking about here, and he even brought Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni to tears as he sang his heart out, which was one of the most touching moments of the entire game.

Let’s be honest, it was really Chris who won the Super Bowl this year:

It never fails to give me chills no matter how many times I re-watch his performance, and I think many others probably feel the same way.

And lucky for all of us, as of this past Friday, Chris’ performance is officially available on streaming platforms everywhere, just in time for the Fourth of July holiday tomorrow.

I mean, really, does it get more American than this?

I think not…

Turn it up:

Chris’ “Star-Spangled Banner”is also featured on the Whiskey Riff New Music Friday Playlist, along with tons of other great new releases from this past week in country music.
