Nick Premieres Song For Big East

We all know Nick Lachey is a big sports fan…. so he’s written an anthem for the Big East Conference to debut Saturday during the Big East basketball tournament finals at Madison Square Garden. His song “Last One Standing” was written specifically for the Big East.

“As a Cincinnati native, I have had a passion for college athletics and the University of Cincinnati,” Lachey said in a statement released today. “I have grown a strong affinity to the Big East since it joined the conference, and think that this song represents the true test that these inspiring student-athletes face by competing in this league.”

The Big East Anthem will be the exclusive song of the Big East Conference and “will be played throughout select conference programming,” says his publicist. Those in Madison Square Garden Saturday for the championship game will see a video highlights montage produced by Garden Vision following the on-court awards ceremony. You can hear the song on Lachey’s website now.
