Super Bowl XLVI is in the books as the New York Giants again topped the slightly favored New England Patriots 21-17 last night at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. One of the brightest moments leading up the kick-off was a stirring rendition of "America the Beautiful" done by Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert.

 At one point during the song they cut to a military unit serving in the middle east who were watching the performance.

 It's been a tough couple of weeks for Shelton and Lambert dealing with the death of Shelton's father and Lambert also dealing with the death of one of her closest friends and last Thursday, her family's dog. See their awesome performance below.
