Reba McEntire brought her patriotic spirit to the Super Bowl.

Ahead of Sunday's big game at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas where the Kansas City Chiefs are facing off against the San Francisco 49ers, the country superstar, 68, delivered a powerful rendition of the national anthem.

McEntire serenaded the crowd with her signature country twang. She wore a bedazzled pair of black jeans and a metallic beige blazer. As she sang with her signature smile, audiences caught glimpses of the large American flag on the field.

Earlier this week, McEntire caught up with PEOPLE and spoke about how much she was looking forward to performing "The Star-Spangled Banner."

"Oh, I'm so excited. You know, it's not about me. It's about everybody who has worked so hard to get to the Super Bowl, and my job is to bring the patriotism," the "Fancy" singer said in an interview about her new collaboration with Sonic.

"I'm going to be singing for not only the people who are going to be performing and playing on the field that day, but it's for everybody who has worked so hard to ensure our freedom and try to have as much peace on earth as we can," she says. "It's not about me. I'm just the conduit and the water hose who gets to sing the song."

McEntire also discussed her set in an interview with Apple Music, saying she's been preparing for the performance regularly.

"I’ve been singing the national anthem in the shower [and] when we get in the car," she said referencing car rides with her boyfriend, actor Rex Linn, who's a "huge football fan."

"He’ll say, ‘OK, sing it one more time.’ I said, ‘I think I know the words real good right now, so I’m alright,’" McEntire explained of her preparation process, noting that it "helps" to "know that everybody's gonna be singing it with me" at the stadium.

"If I know they’re singing along, and they’re remembering and having fun too, that’s easier on me, but just to be prepared when you walk out there," said the "I'm a Survivor" performer, who's been singing the national anthem at sporting events since she was a teenager.

The Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers face off in Super Bowl LVIII, airing on CBS on Feb. 11.
