NASHVILLE, TN (CBS Local) – Nashville Predators fans thought they were in for a special night when hometown stars Lady Antebellum came out to sing the national anthem before the team’s playoff game on May 5. The mood quickly changed when the award-winning music group forgot the words to “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Hockey fans at Bridgestone Arena in Tennessee groaned with displeasure when singer Charles Kelley skipped a line in the song and had to stop and regroup before the trio finished the performance. Kelley and bandmates Hillary Scott and Dave Haywood took to Twitter after the nationally-televised flub to apologize for their anthem mishap.
