    American singer Lee Greenwood will perform his award-winning anthem "God Bless the USA" during the second intermission of the National Hockey League's 2015 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic featuring the Chicago Blackhawks against the Washington Capitals on January 1, 2015. The game will be held at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.

    The annual outdoor celebration of hockey will be televised live nationally on NBC in the U.S. and on CBC and TVA in Canada at 1PM ET on New Year's Day.

    So either DVR it or tune in live. This is one game you do NOT want to miss.

    "Performing 'God Bless the USA' is always special and meaningful in different ways depending on what the event is," noted Greenwood. "Getting to perform it at the NHL Winter Classic for the first time is a thrill for me, and I can't wait to get on the ice."

    Will you tune in to this year's Winter Classic?
