Although the final four contenders for the NFL championship still need to battle it out to see who will be playing at February's Super Bowl, one person that will definitely be gracing the Glendale, Arizona turf is country superstar, Chris Stapleton.

Stapleton will perform the national anthem, joining a stellar cast of past country music performers. In 2022, Mickey Guyton did the honours, while ‘The Chief’, Eric Church, delivered a rousing rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner alongside Jazmine Sullivan in 2021.

Stapleton will be joined by other musical guests, such as Babyface and Sheryl Lee Ralph, for the pre-game suite of performances.

With Stapleton's distinctive, honeyed vocals, the Kentucky native seems the perfect choice for this year's Super Bowl national anthem - although Guyton's moving, gospel-infused performance last year has certainly left him with big shoes to fill.

Pop icon, Rihanna, will play the prestigious half-time show at the Super Bowl LVII, which will either be contested by the Cincinnati Bengals, the Kansas City Chiefs, the San Francisco 49ers and - Zach Bryan's personal favourites - the Philadelphia Eagles.

Zach announced that he'd be releasing his new, Maggie Rogers-assisted single, ‘Dawns’, if the Eagles beat the New York Giants in the previous round. When they were victorious, Zach confirmed the song would be dropping on Friday, January 27.

Chris Stapleton's Super Bowl LVII performance of the Star-Spangled Banner will air via FOX on February 12.
