Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr was a bit busy Sunday, and it wasn’t because of a football game.
Carr, 26, was on stage and gave Oakland and Las Vegas a shoutout before introducing Kelsea Ballerini.
“I’m excited to meet our new friends here in Las Vegas,” said Carr, to which the crowd erupted in cheers.
Never miss a local story.
Last month, NFL owners voted 31-1 to allow the Oakland Raiders to move to a new stadium in Las Vegas. The Raiders plan to play in Oakland for the next two seasons, owner Mark Davis said.
Carr walked the red carpet with his wife. Carr wasn’t the only NFL player there. New England Patriots’ wide receiver Julian Edelman also represented the NFL. Both players took a photo on the red carpet.
The Raiders and Patriots will meet in Mexico City next season.
