The Fray’s Rendition of the National Anthem: Was It THAT Bad?

On Monday night, before Kentucky beat Kansas to win the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship, The Fray took center court for what proved to be a very different rendition of our country’s National Anthem.

I’ll disclose that I’m a fan of The Fray, and Isaac Slade has joined my show twice over the past six months. I honestly don’t think the performance was awful. Sad to say but at least Slade got the words right. Bottom line: the guitars playing the wrong key/out of tune is what doomed this performance. If Slade sings acapella, there’s probably no negative backlash over it.
