Buffett to Sing National Anthem Before Saints NFC Championship Game

January 16th, 2019


The New Orleans Saints play this Sunday in the NFC Championship against the Los Angeles Rams in the Superdome and one of New Orleans’ favorite sons will perform the national anthem:

It’s not like New Orleans Saints fans really need much help getting amped up for Sunday’s NFC Championship tilt against the Los Angeles Rams at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

But they’re going to get it anyway, and from some noteworthy performers.

Inside the Superdome, Gulf Coast native and Saints superfan Jimmy Buffett — who has not only attended Saints games and practices in the past but has also had Saints head coach Sean Payton perform with him on on-stage — will perform the National Anthem before the game.

This is not the first time Jimmy will sing the national anthem at a Saints game. He last did the deed in 2006.

The NFC Championship game will air at 3:05pm ET on Fox.
