Watch Derek Trucks Perform The National Anthem

By Stu Kelly / September 25, 2020

On Thursday night the Jacksonville Jaguars tapped Derek Trucks to perform “The National Anthem” ahead of their primetime Thursday Night Football matchup with the Miami Dolphins.

Trucks is not only a Jacksonville native but he’s also a devoted Jacksonville Jaguars fan along with his wife Susan Tedeschi. In 2018, Tedeschi performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” before a home playoff game against the Buffalo Bills.

Trucks performed the national anthem solo on his convented Gibson SG while using his trademark slide. Trucks’ tone was absolutely gorgeous as he packed plenty of emotion into the performance. Watch the performance below on the Jags’ YouTube page.
