The national anthem performance at Super Bowl 57

Stapleton, an eight-time Grammy winner known for hits like “You Should Probably Leave” and “Tennessee Whiskey,” will perform the national anthem alongside actor Troy Kotsur, who starred in the 2021 Sundance breakout hit and Oscar-winning film “CODA.” Kotsur — who became the second deaf person to win an Oscar, sharing the distinction with his “CODA” co-star, Marlee Matlin — will present the national anthem in American Sign Language, per USA Today.

Additionally, “Abbott Elementary” star Sheryl Lee Ralph will perform “Lift Every Voice and Sing,” presented in ASL by TikTok star Justina Miles, while R&B singer-songwriter Babyface will sing “America the Beautiful,” presented in ASL by Colin Denny, a member of the Navajo Nation in Arizona, according to Axios.

Most recently, Stapleton appeared at the 65th annual Grammy Awards ceremony on Feb. 5, performing “Higher Ground” alongside Stevie Wonder and Smokey Robinson. At the ceremony, Stapleton was a nominated songwriter for best country song, having co-written “I’ll Love You Til the Day I Die” for Willie Nelson’s 2022 album “A Beautiful Time,” per Taste of Country.

Shortly before his Super Bowl performance, Stapleton met with CCR frontman John Fogerty. Last year, Stapleton — who won the 2022 Grammy for best country album — recorded Fogerty’s song “Joy of My Life.”

“What an amazing talent,” Fogerty shared on Twitter. “I am thrilled and honored he recorded a song I wrote, ‘Joy of My Life.’ I got to tell him what that meant to me. Valentines Day I will be releasing a new arrangement of my song.”

Stapleton’s upcoming tour, “All American Road Show,” kicks off April 26 and runs through late August.
