On January 18, 2017 Sawyer Fredericks was asked to perform the National Anthem at the at CCM/ECHL All-Star Classic in Glens Falls New York. After some pre-game ceremonies and player introductions, a carpet was rolled out onto the ice, a microphone was set in place. Sawyer stepped to the microphone, guitar in hand, no hat. The raucous crowd cheered as Sawyer was introduced, then quickly quieted as he began strumming his guitar. As the crowd fell silent, Sawyer sang.
