James Taylor botches U.S. anthem at World Series

James Taylor won a Grammy Award in 1971 for song of the year and record of the year with “You’ve got a Friend.”

Apparently, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer needed a friend on the field at Boston’s Fenway Park Thursday night prior to Game 2 of the World Series.

The legendary folk singer flubbed and started "America The Beautiful" instead of "The Star-Spangled Banner." Taylor corrected himself quickly and started the anthem but his mistake didn’t go unnoticed.
