It’s been a busy day for American Idol winner Phillip Phillips.
Not only did the Georgia native earn a double platinum certification for his single “Home” and release his upcoming album‘s full tracklist, he took to the baseball diamond to perform the Star Spangled Banner at Game 1 of the World Series between the San Francisco Giants and the Detroit Tigers.
Phillips delivered a solid, laid-back version of the Anthem, complete with the trademark gravelly vocal style he maintained on Idol. Though he threw a few brooding notes into the arrangement, Phillips kept things straightforward, pretty, and nicely tuneful.
