Chris Stapleton Delivers Tear-Jerking National Anthem, Draws Comparisons To Famous 1991 Performance

Stapleton, the third consecutive country music singer to be honored with the privilege of singing the Star-Spangled Banner, did not disappoint with his soulful, tear-jerking performance. The song lasted two minutes and one second.

“Grown-a** men crying to Chris Stapleton singing the national anthem,” one Twitter user wrote. “Wow, this one is right up there with Whitney Houston’s performance. Just amazing.”

Another said they were still “mopping up tears” after listening to the powerfully moving singing.

Take a look as Stapleton brings down the house in his 2023 Super Bowl premiere:

Most famous for the waterworks was Philadelphia Eagles’ head coach Nick Siranni. Sirrani, the second-year coach for the favored NFC team (who lost 38-35 in a back and forth contest against the Kansas City Chiefs) was visibly tearing up during Stapleton’s performance. He immediately went viral for all the right reasons.

Fans say Stapleton’s cover rivals, though perhaps not quite eclipses, the iconic 1991 rendition performed by then-27-year-old megastar Whitney Houston.

In that unforgettable performance, Houston famously slowed down her version to increase the drama of the already-moving song.
