We know SAM HUNT was invited to play quarterback in the NFL, but it didn’t work out. But as a country singer, well, he’s as famous as you can get in the short amount of time he’s been on the scene.
With that in mind, TMZ asked if he’d be willing to switch back to football if he KNEW he’d have the same kind of success that he’s having in country music. He said, quote, “No, of course not. I’m not in control of my fate, and that’s a good thing.
“I’m proud to be doing what I’m doing. It wasn’t in the cards to work out in football, but I’m happy to be doing what I’m doing.”
He said he still loves the game and misses competing. He gets his sports fix by playing basketball at the YMCA when he’s home. But he has to hold back because, quote, “I can’t play guitar if I blow my arm out.”
