Underwood jumped on the Golden Knights’ bandwagon after the Winnipeg Jets defeated her beloved Nashville Predators in the Western Conference Semifinal last week.

The “Cry Pretty” singer also offered her talents to sing the national anthem before the Golden Knights’ playoff game, tweeting “I’m 2-0 in the playoffs…just saying…”

The Golden Knights turned down Underwood’s offer Sunday.

“We are very flattered by the offer but we do not plan on making any changes to our previously scheduled anthem singer lineup at this time,” the team said in statement. “This lineup includes musicians who have previously performed at our home games as well as additional entertainers with residencies or ties to Las Vegas that we have been in touch with throughout the year.”

Underwood returned to the stage at the Academy of Country Music Awards for the first time last month since suffering a facial injury that required about 50 stitches.
