When James Taylor sang a (very nice) version of "The Star-Spangled Banner" before World Series Game 2 at Fenway Park, he seemed to accidentally start with the words to "America The Beautiful" before segueing into the anthem.


The reason became clear during the seventh-inning stretch, as Taylor was joined by marathon bombing survivors and rescuers to sing "America The Beautiful" on the field.

Tonight he walked onto the field with Carlos Arredondo, who helped save his life.
