ESPN has a pretty interesting piece on 37-year-old Titans back up QB Kerry Collins. The piece, which can be read by clicking HERE, talks about his future, which from the sounds of it includes doing some country songwriting.
Here is a part of the article on ESPN’s Page 2:
“So many thrills in my life have come from football,” Collins said after a recent practice. “To accomplish something that’s so completely different and so outside of football would be just unbelievable for me.”
Collins is hardly an established songwriter, but his work is taken seriously along Nashville’s famed Music Row. One of the songs he has written was put on a “hold” by George Strait before the country music legend ultimately passed on it.
“It was a real thrill to get one on hold with him,” Collins said. “It was disappointing, sure, when he passed. He’s one of my favorite artists ever. But at the same time, I was encouraged because I felt like I was on the right track.”
Collins recently bought a building on Music Row and started his own publishing company.
“Right now I’m the only writer signed there,” he joked. “Down the line, I’d like to sign some more writers and maybe look into some artist development.”
