The Big Wake Up With Don Chase and Sarah

Weekdays 6:00am-10am

Sam Hunt had a fairly notable career as the quarterback at the University of Alabama-Birmingham. Here's five country stars who got their starts on the college gridiron.

We’re knee deep in college football season, and it’s always fun to look at some of the stars you know and love today, and their connection to the sport.

There are a number of notable country music superstars who locked on their shoulder pads and squared up on the gridiron.

Athletes like Garth Brooks were notable in college, but not necessarily for football. Garth threw the javelin at Oklahoma State.

Kip Moore played both basketball and golf in college. And Carrie Underwood played softball and basketball back in high school.
