You think with the NFL Draft this weekend, ol’ Terry would be pretty locked into football, but nope, he’s been making some country music.
Titled “Quarantine Crazy,” it’s a bit a comedic country tune, but to be honest, it’s not half bad. It sure as shit is more country than half of the songs you’ll hear on country radio right now.
According to an interview with Rolling Stone, the song was inspired by his wife Tammy.
“I was on the phone in my office with Buddy Martin, a really great sportswriter I’ve known for 30-something years. And we were talking football, and Tammy’s in the kitchen and she hollers at me and says, “Terry! I’m going quarantine crazy!” I said, “Quarantine crazy? Hey, that’s a country song title.” I said, “Buddy, I’ll call you back.”
Gotta strike while the inspiration is hot, right?
Of course, Terry had some success in the country music world back in the day.
The NFL legend hit the Billboard charts back in the ’70s with his cover of Hank Williams’ “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry,” and even released a couple of albums.
Here’s a clip of Terry singing “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” back in the day.
Whiskey Riff is the most entertaining country site…ever.
