Nashville SC supporters rock out to Lzzy Hale's guitar riff at inaugural match

That's how you get a record-setting crowd pumped for a match.

Moments before Nashville SC kicked off its inaugural MLS match, rock artist Lzzy Hale sent the fans into a tizzy with a guitar riff that will be the first in a new tradition for the club.

In front of The Backline supporters' section, the Grammy-winning Halestrom singer and songwriter performed a pregame "Gibson Guitar Riff" that will now be a fixture at Nashville home matches.

The new club ritual will showcase different artists riffing on a Nashville SC customized Gibson guitar throughout the season.
