ASSOCIATED PRESS

Country, R&B, and pop sounds will take the field at the 2010 World Series.

Major League Baseball announced Tuesday that soul singer John Legend will perform the national anthem Wednesday night at Game 1 of the series between the San Francisco Giants and the Texas Rangers.

Country trio Lady Antebellum is set to perform “The Star-Spangled Banner” Thursday at Game 2. Games 1 and 2 will take place in San Francisco and start at 7:57 p.m.

On Saturday at Game 3 in Arlington, Texas, pop singer and former American Idol champion Kelly Clarkson will sing the anthem. Texas is her home state.

Game 3 is scheduled to begin a few minutes before 7 p.m., the earliest start for a World Series game in more than 20 years.
