Carrie Underwood jumps on Golden Knights bandwagon

Carrie, take the wheel?

Country music superstar Carrie Underwood looks to be one of the newest passengers on the Vegas Golden Knights bandwagon as it heads into the Western Conference Final.

According to a flurry of tweets sent Thursday night, the singer/songwriter/actress and wife of Nashville Predators center Mike Fisher will be rooting for the Golden Knights to win the Stanley Cup.

After lamenting Nashville’s 5-1 Game 7 loss to Winnipeg and praising her husband and the Preds, the former American Idol tweeted, “And I’ll also say, until next season, I am officially a @GoldenKnights fan! I’ll enjoy seeing them make a little history!!”

Underwood brings more than just 7 Grammys and a late pass to Knights Nation — she’s even offered to sing the Star-Spangled Banner for a Knights home game.

For their part, the Knights seem to have a least a little interest, tweeting back, “We’ll have our people talk to your people.”

Even regular Vegas anthem singer Carnell Johnson seems willing to share pregame national anthem duties, provided the T-Mobile Arena faithful can still participate.

Will the Golden Knights be adding another superstar to their acclaimed pregame production? Time will tell.
