Country Music Career Next for Blair Walsh?
As many of you have probably already heard, the Minnesota Vikings have released Blair Walsh. And, while the 2012 pro-bowl kicker's football career probably isn't over permanently, he might just be perfect for a new career in country music!
Last fall, I put together a post called, 'Country Singer or College Quarterback.' Basically, I put together a list containing a mix of both country singers and college quarterbacks to show how similar their names are and to see if Quick Country listeners could guess who was who on the list.
I don't know if Blair Walsh can sing at all. I even searched YouTube to see if I could find any footage of the former Vikings kicker singing and, while plenty of videos of him came up, there didn't seem to be any of him singing.
But, think about it! His name like Blair Walsh, which totally sounds like a country singer's name. He was born in Florida and went to college at the University of Georgia, so he's got Southern roots. And take a look at his photo. He even looks like a country singer! Just throw a cowboy hat, some jeans and a pair of boots on him and strap a guitar around his neck and he'd be all set. It's as if he was meant to be a future country music superstar!
