No Country Music: Super Bowl Reveals Performers for National Anthem & Halftime Show

Super Bowl LIV (54) on Feb. 2 will feature a halftime performance by Jennifer Lopez and Shakira, with Demi Lovato (pictured) singing the national anthem during the pre-game festivities.

A country artist has not headlined the Super Bowl halftime show since Shania Twain pumped “Up!” the crowd in 2003 with Sting and No Doubt. That’s 17 years of twang-less performances for the more than 100 millions U.S. viewers that tune in each year.

If you go back to 1994, the halftime show—which was themed Rockin’ Country Sunday—featured Clint Black, Tanya Tucker, Travis Tritt and the Judds.

If you want a really fun fact, Doug Kershaw was one of the performers during the 1990 Super Bowl. Doug had a handful of Top 20 hits on the country charts in the 1950s and ’60s with his brother Rusty as the duo Rusty & Doug.

Luke Bryan performed the national anthem at Super Bowl LI in 2017. In case you were wondering, past anthem performers with a country connection include Charley Pride (1974), Garth Brooks (1993), Faith Hill (2000), Dixie Chicks (2003) and Carrie Underwood (2010).

From Patriot to Punchline By Rick Worthington 9/3/20 Have you ever tried to do something good, but went about doing it the wrong way?
