carrie underwood natl anthem 320 Super Bowl: Carrie Underwood's sound check National Anthem betterCarrie Underwood’s practice National Anthem was much better than the actual performance.

Did you see Carrie do the Star-Spangled Banner at the Super Bowl? Looking like an extra from Dollywood? It was a little rough. We all know Carrie can sing, so we were a little surprised when her National Anthem didn’t floor us.

However, based on this video of her sound check, we now have to chalk it up to nerves or maybe she couldn’t hear herself as well with a stadium full of people. Either way, we wanted to put this out there because the sound check National Anthem? Nailed it. And we do give her props for singing it live because it is NOT an easy song to sing.

What do you think? Do you prefer sound check Carrie or Dollywood Carrie? We love Carrie either way, but the relaxed-plaid-shirt-in-the-rain Carrie is the Carrie we love most.
