After already performing the national anthem twice during the Stanley Cup playoffs, country music superstar Carrie Underwood has been turned down for another.

Underwood, whose husband has been a long-standing member of the Nashville Predators, performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” during the playoffs last year, and again this year – just several weeks ago.

During a Game Six of the playoffs this year, her husband, Mike Fisher, sustained an unexpected lower-body injury that forced him to undergo surgery and kept him from playing in the following game. The Nashville Predators lost that game and, subsequently, exited the playoffs.

Following the team’s loss, Underwood declared herself a newfound Las Vegas Golden Knights fan, saying that she would be rooting for their team, now.

Beyond just declaring herself a new fan of the Golden Knights, Underwood also threw out an offer that stunned a lot of people!

“And one last thing,” she tweeted. “If the Golden Knights need an anthem singer, I’m 2-0 in the playoffs…just saying…”

While she herself was all about belting the national anthem once more, it seems the Golden Knights had a very different idea. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, officials for the team expressed their gratitude for her offer – but declined anyway.

“We are very flattered by the offer but we do not plan on making any changes to our previously scheduled anthem singer lineup at this time,” officials said in a statement. “This lineup includes musicians who have previously performed at our home games as well as additional entertainers with residencies or ties to Las Vegas that we have been in touch with throughout the year.”
