ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- “American Idol” alum Chris Daughtry will sing the national anthem at the final World Series game.
The lead singer of the band Daughtry will perform Friday night at Game 7 between the Texas Rangers and the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.
Grammy-nominated country singer David Nail will sing “God Bless America” before the game. It will air on Fox.
Former World Series pitchers for the Cardinals will hit the field, too: Bob Forsch will throw ceremonial first pitch, and Joe Magrane will deliver the official game ball.
The Cardinals won Game 6 in dramatic fashion Thursday night, coming from behind to win 10-9 in extra innings.
Other series singers have included Zooey Deschanel and recent “Idol” winner Scotty McCreery.
