In yet another reminder that even famous artists can become flustered when standing in front of nearly 40,000 rowdy sports fans, Taylor began singing “America the Beautiful” before quickly correcting himself and switching gears to “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Oops.
It’s not as bad as it seems. As Fox News noted, the folk singer was scheduled to play “America the Beautiful” during the 7th inning stretch alongside some victims of the Boston Marathon bombings. He had obviously rehearsed both performances and had a brief brain fart, which he did a nice job of recovering from. We have seen much, much worse over the years.
