Jordan Smith National Anthem Longines Kentucky Oaks (VIDEO)

Jordan Smith had the honor of repping for his home state of Kentucky on Friday as he sang the National Anthem before the Longines Kentucky Oaks derby at Churchill Downs in Louisville. The race, featuring 3 year old fillies, is part of a weekend full of events centered around the Kentucky Derby, taking place on Saturday.

Watch the The Voice season 9 winner belt out the anthem right here. Check out the hats on the ladies. So colorful and ornate!

Speaking of hats, Jordan and his fiancé Kristen Denny got all dolled up for Derby events. Check out the instagram pics.

The Kentucky Oaks features a “Pink Out” theme and asks guests to incorporate pink into their attire to raise breast cancer awareness.

“Barnstable Brown” refers to the Barnstable Brown party which took place last night, to benefit the University of Kentucky’s Barnstable Brown Diabetes and Obesity Center.

It isn't really the Derby without #BarnstableBrown.
