Oh say can you... you... you... what's the next line? Country singer Luke Bryan didn't want to screw up his performance of the National Anthem during the MLB All-Star Game so he brought along a little cheat sheet.

Bryan can be seen looking down at his hands a few times during the song. The country singer was criticized by his fans for using a cheat sheet during the National Anthem but Bryan said that he only wanted to "do his best" and didn't want to screw up the song.

Bryan said:

"I had a few keys words written down to insure myself that I wouldn't mess up... I just wanted to do my best. I promise it was from the heart. If I offended anyone with my approach I sincerely apologize. Anytime I sing the anthem it is an honor and my heart beats out of my chest."

Bryan explained:

"I did check my watch because I knew the stealth bomber would fly over 2 minutes in and I knew a started a little late.... Being a part of the all-star game was amazing and I look forward to the next time I can perform the anthem. Thanks y'all. Love ya."
