NASHVILLE (AP) - Stars are lining up for Major League Baseball's All-Star Game in Kansas City.
Among them is Blue Springs, Mo., native and former 'American Idol' contestant David Cook, who will sing the national anthem Monday night at the Home Run Derby.
The derby will air on ESPN along with a previously announced on-field performance from Zac Brown Band.
On Tuesday, country singer Luke Bryan will sing the national anthem at the All-Star Game and country artist Kellie Pickler will perform "God Bless America" during the 7th inning stretch.
Before the game, "American Idol" winner Phillip Phillips is planning a special on-field performance of his song "Home." A tribute will play during the song that highlights tornado recovery efforts in nearby Joplin, Mo., and Tuscaloosa, Ala. Habitat for Humanity is building nine new homes for low-income families in those areas.
All three performances as well as the All-Star Game will air Tuesday on Fox.
