Remember When an NFL Quarterback Scored a Top 20 Country Hit?

Subscribe to Taste of Country on

Not only was this man once an NFL quarterback, he’d go on to become one of the best of all time, securing a spot in the Hall of Fame the very first year he was on the ballot. His singing probably didn’t help, but as you’ll see in this video, it couldn’t have hurt either. Do you remember this moment in country music history?

Terry Bradshaw was coming off a Pro Bowl year when he released a country album called ‘I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry’ in 1976. The title-track, a cover of Hank Williams‘ legendary tune, made it all the way to No. 17 on the Billboard country charts that year. Follow-up singles didn’t perform nearly as well, but that didn’t slow him down. The former Pittsburgh Steeler recorded multiple albums since, including a Christmas album.

The music gene got passed along to his daughter Rachel. She appeared on the short-lived Fox reality show ‘Nashville’ and went to Belmont University. In April 2012 she signed with Bigger Picture Music Group and remains on their roster as of September 2013.
