Country stars and catfish are the Nashville Predators' good luck charm.

The massive following of Southerners behind the Nashville Predators is perhaps one of the most incredible displays of spirit that the National Hockey League's ever witnessed. Team captain and Carrie Underwood's husband Mike Fisher recently said it best to The Tennessean: "[Bridgestone] has become the loudest building in the NHL."

But, to ever-passionate Southerners, the loyalty and heart that we put into cheering on our local team is nothing out of the ordinary. This year, the Nashville Preds are 2017 Conference Champions, and the whole state of Tennessee (and Southern region!) are cheering them on through a nail-biting round of Stanley Cup Final games against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

WATCH: Carrie Underwood's Nashville Predators Performance

In honor of the Preds' success, CMT pieced together clips of the national anthem as performed by Nashville's biggest stars and released it on Facebook. The country-heavy compilation will absolutely give you chills, with performances from Keith Urban, Vince and Jenny Gill, Kelly Clarkson, Trisha Yearwood, Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, and Luke Bryan.

We're cheering you on across the South, Nashville – go Preds!
