What a treat for Rome fans! Jimmy Hall should play a harp solo in the middle of the National Anthem! The only other person I can't get enough of singng the Anthem is Ray Charles! Now it's Jimmy Hall! Soon it will be also Alison Heafner who has been asked by the Memphis Redbirds to sing the National Anthem at one of thier games! Robert Nix............
