Here is the video of Clay Cook performing the National Anthem Sunday (February 24). Lots of critics are saying it was sub-par. I thought it was all right. He didn't try to over sing it like we have heard other performers do in the past. It's the hardest song to sing no matter where. But in front of an audience as large as the Daytona 500 TV audience, the pressure has to be brutal!

I'm not gonna say that is a free pass to be sub-par. I would say that the entire Zac Brown Band should have been a part of the Anthem. That may have helped??
