    Country star Chris Stapleton delivered a moving rendition of the national anthem on Sunday at Super Bowl LVII in Glendale, Arizona that left many in tears, including players.

    Before the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles played in the worlds biggest game, the 44-year-old country singer delivered what many on social media are calling one of the best renditions of the "Star Spangled Banner" at the Super Bowl.

    WATCH:


    Eagles coach Nick Sirianni could be seen on camera with tears pouring down his cheeks as the "Tennessee Whiskey" hitmaker belted out one incredible line after another.

    Philadelphia lineman Jason Kelce, Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones, and many more were clearly moved by Stapleton's performance.

    Pop star Pink tweeted that, "[ChrisStapleton] my good lord - you and Whitney own the national anthem. Forever and ever."

    One person wrote, "A Chris Stapleton National Anthem just hits different. #SuperBowl."

    "Kentucky proud! [ChrisStapleton just crushed the national anthem and made me cry," another tweeted.

    While another wrote, "Chris Stapleton just delivered one of the best National Anthem performances I've heard in a long time."

    Immediately after the "Broken Halos" hitmaker left people in tears, fans witnessed an all-female fly over as players from both teams waited to play against each other.

    Emmy-award winner and Golden Globe-nominate Sheryl Lee Ralph started things off Sunday by singing "Lift Every Voice and Sing," also known as the black national anthem. She was followed by twelve-time Grammy winner, Babyface, who sang a great version of "America the Beautiful," just before the eight-time Grammy winner brought down the house.

    Stapleton, known for hit songs like "Fire Away" shared the news in January with his 1.8 million followers on Instagram that he would perform on the world's biggest stage.

    The line-up last year for Super Bowl LVI in Inglewood, California, included artist Mickey Guyton, who sang the national anthem; R&B hitmaker Jhené Aiko, who performed "America the Beautiful"; and the gospel duo Mary Mary, who sang "Lift Every Voice and Sing" as they were accompanied by the L.A. Philharmonic's Youth Orchestra.

    It was previously announced that Rihanna would headline the halftime show following last year's star-studded performance from Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar.
