    Three-time Grammy winners Zac Brown Band will perform the national anthem before the college football national championship game in Atlanta on Jan. 8.

    The College Football Playoff on Thursday announced the participants for its pregame festivities.

    Atlanta gospel choir David Walker & High Praise will accompany Zac Brown Band on the anthem and Carly Ortega, a 12-year-old Georgia native, will sign it. Ortega attends the Atlanta Area School for the Deaf.

    The flag will be presented by U.S. Marines from Bravo Company, 4th Reconnaissance Battalion, based in Smyrna, Georgia.

    The CFP previously announced that the Chainsmokers, Darius Rucker, Jason Derulo, Bebe Rexha, Brett Young, Spencer Ludwig and Lizzo will perform in concerts at Centennial Olympic Park from Jan. 6-8.
