Van Cliburn National Anthem At Cowboys Stadium

Posted September 10, 2010 by Jeff Prince in Blotch

Van Cliburn’s rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner is waxed upon in a rather uncharacteristic gushing manner by Fort Worth Star-Telegram columnist Bud Kennedy in today’s paper.

I was going to post a YouTube video of Cliburn playing the national anthem, but I couldn’t find one.

So check out versions by these musicians and vocalists with Fort Worth roots:

THE DIXIE CHICKS HARMONIZE LIKE ANGELS BEFORE SUPER BOWL IN 2003

HOMETOWN GIRL KELLY CLARKSON GETS OFF TO ROUGH START BUT BRINGS IT HOME WITH STYLE

A GORGEOUS STRAIGHTFORWARD VERSION BY JEWEL

LEANN RIMES GETS TWANGY WID IT

COOL VERSION BY GUITAR PLAYING WHIZ KID JOSHUA LANTRIP AND ERIC SERRANO

THIS 13-YR-OLD KID’S VERY PLEASANT SAXOPHONE VERSION AT FW DOG SHOW STILL MAKES ‘EM HOWL

TEXAS BOYS CHOIR DOES IT QUITE PROPER AT THE MODERN MUSEUM (AND WHAT’S UP WITH THAT RED-HEADED KID WAY OFF TO THE LEFT?)

    Suprised you missed this one Jeff. It’s the most gut wretching, goose-bump popping, tear jerking rendition of the National Anthem…bar none.

    The Catus Cuties.

    Joel: I was only posting Fort Worth-area artists. The Cactus Cuties are Lubbock based. But those girls can really sing.
