Things all started when Eddie was giving artist Andy Grammer a hard time for his National Anthem performance at the college football National Championship game. He said Grammar didn't sound good and he didn't think it was too hard to nail the National Anthem. So on the spot, Bobby Bones told Eddie he had to perform the National Anthem and see how 'easy' it really was. Well, turns out, Eddie can actually do a solid National Anthem performance. After positive listener response, we all convinced Eddie to try out for a local spot in Nashville as a National Anthem performer.
Fast forward a couple of weeks, Eddie sent in an audition tape for the Nashville Sounds, Nashville's, minor league baseball team and Triple-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers, and they accepted it. Eddie will be performing the National Anthem at their game on Thursday, April 18th.
