Clay Walker belts out National Anthem before Game 6 of the World Series

The country star belted out the Star Spangled Banner before the first pitch Tuesday night.

HOUSTON — It was a national anthem with a Texas twist before Game 6 of the World Series.

County music star Clay Walker belted out the Star Spangled Banner before a game the Astros hope will be their last this season.

Houston is hosting Washington at Minute Maid Park with a 3-2 series edge.  They can close out the Nationals with a win tonight.  Justin Verlander is on the hill for Houston, and he’s being opposed by the Nats’ Stephen Strasburg.

If the series does go to a Game 7, it’ll be Zack Greinke for Houston vs. Nats’ ace Max Scherzer, who was scratched from his Game 5 start with neck spasms.
