Terry Bradshaw stage show to feature stories and, um, songs?

Terry BradshawMirage (music group)Steel City

Terry Bradshaw has a loyal following in Pittsburgh.

I don't know. Something about winning four Super Bowls with some team called the Steelers.

So who better than the blond bomber to kick off a summer concert series June 14 that also features Motown legend Smokey Robinson and old-school favorites the Oak Ridge Boys and 38 Special at the Meadows Casino in Washington, Pa., about 30 minutes outside of the Steel City?

Sounds great. He can just stand there and tell football anecdotes while laying on that down-home charm that has made him a favorite during Fox's football coverage all these years.

But check this out -- it's being billed as an evening of stories and songs.

That's right. Songs.

Turns out, Bradshaw actually has a bit of a history in country and gospel music. Back in the '70s, he actually had a top-10 country hit with a cover of "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry."

And as recently as last summer, he had a one-man show at the Mirage in Las Vegas in which he did some singing and even some dancing.

Call me crazy, but he's actually not that bad.
