Deana Carter is set to perform the National Anthem live on CNN and Telemundo as the media groups join the RNC as hosts for the Republican National Committee Presidential Primary Debate on Thursday, February 25, at University of Houston’s Moore’s School of Music Opera House (Opera Center). The debate will begin at 8:30 p.m. ET.
CNN Anchor Wolf Blitzer will moderate the debate and Telemundo News co-anchor Maria Celeste Arrás, Salem talk radio host Hugh Hewitt and CNN chief political correspondent Dana Bash will join as questioners. In addition, Salem Radio Network will be the exclusive radio provider for the debate. This will be the final RNC sanctioned debate before the March 1 Super Tuesday primary elections.
“It is an honor to sing the National Anthem at this historic event,” says award-winning singer Deana Carter. “I have been following all the candidates very closely and am thrilled to be a part of this evening in America’s political history,” she continues.
Deana Carter is a multi-platinum, award-winning singer/songwriter whose CMA Song of the Year “Strawberry Wine,” is still a mainstay on the airwaves after its release nearly 20 years ago. Carter is currently on a national concert tour with stops in Woodland and Fort Worth, Texas, this weekend.
Recently, Carter has been busy writing for her next project, shooting several movies and touring the United States in support of her latest Little Nugget Records release Southern Way of Life.
