We're also finding out who'll kick off each evening's entertainment by singing the national anthem. The Oak Ridge Boys will do the honors on Thursday, accompanied by the Marine Corps Band New Orleans. Viral video star Mason Ramsey steps up to the mic on Friday, with newcomer Jillian Jacqueline following on Saturday. Legendary country comedian Ray Stevens wraps things up on Sunday.
