Cotton Bowl 2011: National Anthem by Little Big Town is sort of an encore performance [poll]

January 7, 2011 |  6:02 pm


If the National Anthem at Cotton Bowl 2011 sounded a little familiar, well, you just might be watching a little too much college football. Little Big Town, the country group that delivered four-part harmony Friday night, had warmed up for the Cotton Bowl by singing that same tune for the Orange Bowl on Monday.

The Stanford Cardinal took the trophy at the Orange Bowl, giving Virginia Tech a 40-12 walloping to put an exclamation mark on the end of the Pac-10 era as we know it. Cotton Bowl 2011, in Arlington, Texas, is pitting the No. 11 LSU Tigers (Geaux!) against the No. 17 Aggies (Do we see a 12th man?) from Texas A&M.

Little Big Town, together since 1998, includes husband and wife -- and new parents -- Jimi Westbrook and Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman and Philip Sweet (the latter two married outside the group).

Check out video of Little Big Town at the Orange Bowl, above, and let us know if you like them enough to hear them do it twice.
