NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

The Nashville Predators' Stanley Cup run came to an end Sunday night with a 2-0 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Penguins have become the first team in 19 years to win the Stanley Cup in consecutive years.

Officials estimate 60,000 to 70,000 people were outside in downtown Nashville either watching the Predators game or attending CMA Fest events on Sunday night.

It was the party only the Music City could host. Watch parties filled not only Lower Broadway but also Ascend Amphitheater.

"This is absolutely phenomenal. I am a native Nashvillian, and in my lifetime from a sports standpoint, I've never experienced anything like this," said Aric Falati.

Here's a look at some of the highlights from the game:

Country star Faith Hill was chosen to sing the national anthem before Game 6. She was joined on the ice by her husband, Tim McGraw, who was the honorary towel waver before the game.

Several catfish have been thrown on the ice so far, but one stood out more than the others. The big fish appeared to sport a coat and a sequined hat.

Country superstar Luke Bryan led the outside crowd with a live performance from the roof of Tootsie's.

Brad Paisley was spotted inside Bridgestone Arena holding up a large catfish.
