    Default James Taylor started singing America the beautiful before the National Anthem world s

    I thought I heard James Taylor sing the first bar of America the beautiful before he started singing the National Anthem. Turns out he did.

    I guess people are forgiving of the James. He's really one of the best at what he did making music.

    James Taylor got a bit confused when it was time to belt out the National Anthem at Game 2 of the World Series on Thursday night. The legendary folk singer began singing "America the Beautiful" instead of the "Star-Spangled Banner" as the audience at the game looked on. He quickly caught his mistake and switched over to the National Anthem after the first few words.

    Taylor, 65, was scheduled to play "America the Beautiful" during the seventh inning of the game, so that may be where the mix up came from. Taylor was able to transition into the National Anthem seamlessly and his mistake was barely noticed... barely.

    I saw that last night. Laughed a little but figured he didn't so much ruin the national anthem but simply started to sing the wrong song. He caught himself. No big deal.

    He played it off pretty well.

    Nothing for anyone to be upset over, it happens. More comical seeing that ah-ha moment when he realized.

    Yeah. Give him credit. He corrected himself and went on.
