At Super Bowl 57, country singer Chris Stapleton kept the national anthem simple by singing "The Star Spangled Banner" on the field by himself while accompanied only by his electric guitar. He did this just before the Kansas City Chiefs kicked off the game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

He performed the national anthem as a somber ballad while sporting plain black denim, sunglasses, and carefully styled hair in place of his trademark feathered cowboy hat. He only momentarily rocked the song when he shouted the final lyrics, "flag yet wave" and "home of the free!"

Although it seemed slow, his anthem finished in 2 minutes, 2 seconds less than the 2 minutes, and 5 seconds that the oddsmakers had anticipated. However, it was more than 10 seconds longer than Mickey Guyton's song from the previous year.
