Bryant performed acoustic before the game, threw the game’s ceremonial first pitch, hit the stands during the game to give away Opry and Nashville prizes to lucky fans, and introduced Country Music Night’s post-game fireworks. Earlier in the day, Bryant performed for fans at US99.5 studios in downtown Chicago.
