Is the MLB World Series is going country?

The first night of the World Series kicks off tonight (Oct. 21) in Kansas City, Mo., with a performance by Trisha Yearwood. The country artist will sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” before Game 1 between the San Francisco Giants and the Kansas City Royals.

And Yearwood isn’t the only country artist gracing the baseball field this week. Country quartet Little Big Town, whose new album Pain Killer is out today (Oct. 21), will sing the national anthem before Game 3 on Friday (Oct. 24).

Meanwhile, American Idol alum Phillip Phillips will sing before Game 2 tomorrow (Oct. 22).

And on Saturday, Oct. 25, Carlos Santana will put his own spin on the national anthem when he switches things up by performing an instrumental rendition of the national anthem with his son before Game 4 at At&T Park in San Francisco.

Further national anthem singers have not been announced, as the World Series could only go four games at a minimum. At maximum, it could go seven, meaning three more games needing singers to kick off the game.
