An Alabama icon recently had the honor of leading one of the nation's most prestigious collegiate ensembles during a huge game.

Saturday, November 4th, The Alabama Crimson Tide faced off against the LSU Tigers in their 88th game against each other and of course, the Tide rolled over the Tiger. Bama finished the game with a convincing 42-28 victory.

A few groundbreaking things happened at the game this year. One of which being Alabama Quarterback Jalen Milroe making history as the first Quarterback in Alabama history to snag 4 rushing touchdowns in a single game.

Before the game, Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist James Spann had the honor of conducting the Million Dollar Band. Spann described the opportunity as a "full circle" moment.

"Fifty years ago I was in the Tuscaloosa High School band. I marched on that field during my THS days (Denny Stadium was our home field)… I never dreamed I would be on the big ladder in front of the Million Dollar Band one day," Spann posted on his Facebook account ahead of the LSU and Alabama game.

"This evening, I will have the honor of directing the University of Alabama Million Dollar Band in the National Anthem before the Alabama/LSU game at Bryant-Denny Stadium."

Spann looked like a professional atop the huge ladder in front of Alabama's Million Dollar Band inside of Bryant-Denny.
James Spann conducted the National Anthem just before kickoff against LSU and looked as calm and cool as ever.
Roll Tide and a great job James Spann!
