Ravens National Anthem Singer, a Combat Veteran RESIGNING !

Joey Odoms, the combat veteran who won a competition in 2014 to become the national anthem singer at Ravens home games at M&T Bank Stadium, has resigned from his position, a team spokesperson confirmed Tuesday evening.

“We greatly appreciate the work Joey did for us and we thank him,” said Ravens senior vice president of public and community relations Kevin Byrne.

Odoms’ decision comes two days after many players around the NFL took a knee during the national anthem in response to President Donald Trump’s comments Friday that called for owners to fire players if they didn’t stand for the anthem.
