Still, other fans may recognize Bradshaw from his various TV and film appearances. He has appeared in several commercials and TV shows. You can see him in classics like “Cannonball Run” and “The Adventures of Brisco Country, Jr.” and he had a role in the 2006 film “Failure to Launch.”

What may surprise many fans of both country music and the NFL is that Terry Bradshaw has five albums. This includes one Christmas album. His first album is titled “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” and features Bradshaw’s cover of the Hank Williams classic.

Even more surprisingly, the album came out while he was still in the NFL. In fact, it dropped in 1976, the year after he earned his second Super Bowl ring. The real kicker here is how great his voice is. Terry Bradshaw may not nail Ol’ Hanks’ yodel, but not many can. Bradshaw delivers a soulful performance on one of country music’s most legendary songs.
