Chris Stapleton kicked off Super Bowl LVII on a soaring high note — literally — with his performance of the National Anthem before the big game on Sunday evening (Feb. 12).

Accompanied only by an electric guitar, Stapleton brought his trademark soul and sizzle to his performance, adding in plenty of tender, bluesy guitar licks and flourishes as he sang. The star’s performance was relatively restrained, but as always, his vocals couldn’t help but shine as he performed to a crowd of cheering football fans. Vocal runs and pitch-perfect high notes dotted the singer’s performance, which lasted just over two minutes and 20 seconds.
