From Charley Pride in 1974 to Luke Bryan in 2017: The Brief History of Country Artists Performing at the Super Bowl

Super Bowl LIV (54) on Feb. 2 is not slated to have any country-centric performers taking the stage at halftime (Jennifer Lopez and Shakira) or performing the national anthem (Demi Lovato) during pre-game festivities. However, a handful of country stars have taken part in various Super Bowls over the last 50-plus years.

Take a look at what some of your favorite country stars brought to TV’s biggest stage during past Super Bowls.

  • Super Bowl XXIV, 1990: 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.
