SAN ANTONIO, June 23 – Country music stars Brooks & Dunn will perform the U.S. national anthem at the SBC Center prior to Game 7 of The Finals between the San Antonio Spurs and the Detroit Pistons tonight. The performance and coverage of Game 7 will be televised beginning at 8:30 p.m. ET on ABC and will reach a global audience in 205 countries.

Beginning in August, the duo will launch their DEUCES WILD tour, welcoming fellow duos Big & Rich and the Warren Brothers on the road for one of the summer’s hottest country outings.

The Finals tipped off June 9 with the teams competing for the coveted Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy.
