To quote Kenny Chesney’s 2010 hit, “The Boys of Fall”…
“When I feel that chill, smell that fresh cut grass
I’m back in my helmet, cleats and shoulder pads
Standing in the huddle listening to the call
Fans going crazy for the boys of fall”
Football is an American love story, and it seems our love for the game only grows stronger every year. Since we are deep into the season now, I thought it would be a kick (pun intended) to take a look at some of country music’s most popular artists who played the game. From boys of fall to men of country. These stars all played football, and some were on a career path to play it professionally.
