Double Date At The Big Game
The “Wait In The Truck” collaborators were pictured on the sidelines of Super Bowl LVIII enjoying the big game together.
Caleigh Hardy shared a snapshot of the longtime friends and former tourmates via Instagram and jokingly polled her followers, asking “who’s streaking?!” and had people vote on which of them would be running on the field, Lainey, Me (Caleigh), Michael (HARDY), or Duck (Devlin). At the time of publication, Michael was leading with 56% of the votes.
In honor of the occasion, HARDY sported a black 49ers jersey, while Caleigh donned a red ensemble with off-white boots. Wilson opted for jean bell bottoms a red jacket, and a black hat, meanwhile, Devlin was seen wearing a grey hoodie.
HARDY Performed In Las Vegas Before The Super Bowl
Ahead of Super Bowl LVIII, HARDY performed at the Ashley House inside Resorts World Las Vegas. Presented by Ashley, the event was free and open to the public and included performances by Cooper Alan, ERNEST, and HARDY leading into Super Bowl weekend.
Lainey Wilson To Appear In Super Bowl Commercial
Lainey Wilson will make a splash during the big game by appearing in her first-ever Super Bowl commercial. As previously announced, the GRAMMY-winning country star will appear in a Coors Light ad set to debut in full during the Super Bowl.
The ad will find the CMA Entertainer of the Year winner celebrating her love for a cold drink while welcoming back the Coors Light Chill Train for the first time in 12 years. The brand first debuted its iconic train in 2005, bringing ‘chill’ across North America, and now it’s getting its chance to make a triumphant return.
“I think my family’s going to freak out when they see me on a commercial during the Super Bowl,” Wilson previously told Billboard. “It was such a dream to be in my first big game day and just help reintroduce the Coors Light iconic Chill Train to bring a little bit of that chill that everybody needs. We need that chill out from time to time.”
Several Country Stars Are At The Big Game
Country stars are out in full force in Las Vegas for the Super Bowl. According to social media, artists such as Luke Combs, Maren Morris, Russell Dickerson, and Blake Shelton have been spotted at the game.
Reba’s National Anthem Performance
Of course, Reba McEntire is also in attendance as she delivered a standout rendition of the national anthem ahead of kickoff. Sporting a Ralph Lauren ensemble, complete with black embellished pants, a black top, and a khaki blazer, Reba gave a goosebumps-inducing performance from the Allegiant Stadium field.
The Country Music Hall of Famer’s national anthem performance at Super Bowl LVIII marked a significant milestone in her life and career as it completed a full-circle moment that began 50 years ago at the 1974 National Finals Rodeo in Oklahoma. It was there that she was discovered while singing the national anthem. This moment marked the start of her iconic career in country music.
“I’m honored to be part of something as big and historic as the Super Bowl coming to Las Vegas for the first time,” McEntire previously shared in a statement. “2024 marks 50 years since I was discovered singing the National Anthem at the National Finals Rodeo, and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate that anniversary.”
The “Fancy” singer gave a small nod to her rodeo days by adding a large belt buckle to her game-day look.
Super Bowl LVIII finds the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers competing for the title of Super Bowl champions.
