Phillips will take to the field to sing his original song "Home" with the American Idol Band prior to the All-Star Game, and that performance will be part of a tribute highlighting the tornado recovery efforts in Joplin, Missouri and Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
Luke Bryan -- whose album "tailgates & tanlines" debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart -- will conduct the national anthem prior to the game, and Pickler, a contestant in American Idol's fifth season, will sing "God Bless America" during the seventh-inning stretch. The All-Star Game will air live on FOX on Tuesday beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
And while those artists will combine to make sure the All-Star Game has its share of star power, the entertainment will actually begin at Monday night's Home Run Derby. The Zac Brown Band will perform on the field at 8:00 p.m ET, and Cook will sing the national anthem prior to the Derby.
Cook won season seven of American Idol, and the native of Blue Springs, Missouri will be making a homecoming for the All-Star Game. The Zac Brown Band will perform a medley of two songs that will air on the MLB Network prior to ESPN's coverage of the Home Run Derby.
