Laura Bell Bundy Kicks Off Football Season in Nashville

Kenny Chesney  isn’t the only country star that loves football. Laura Bell Bundy  is a diehard Kentucky Wildcats fan and she is just as excited about the start off college football this weekend as anyone. Her beloved Wildcats will kick off college football season tonight against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers at LP Field in Nashville.
“I’m a huge UK fan,” Laura Bell told WKU’s Herald.  “My grandfather actually did the Coach Rupp shows with (former UK basketball) coach (Adolph) Rupp. He would do sports announcing and all that kind of stuff back in the day before I was born. And when I was born, we had season tickets to the games. We’re always either at the games or watching the games with family. Our family activities are always catered around University of Kentucky basketball and football games. We tailgate as a family and we watch the game as a family. We’re pretty obsessed. It’s bourbon balls and beer cheese and potato chips and UK games. All of the best memories I have with my families have to do with UK games.”
Before the game, Laura Bell will perform a free concert at Nashville’s Riverfront Park. The show starts at 5:30 pm and will wrap up just in time for kick off. Laura Bell, who now lives in Nashville, is looking forward to performing for fellow Kentucky fans.
“I was called by someone affiliated with my label and asked if I would be interested in doing a concert,” she said. “And I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? Doing a concert for a bunch of people in Kentucky? That sounds amazing.’ I am super excited about it. I hope a lot of people come out.”
When WKU’s paper asked Laura Bell for her pick as to which team will be victorious, she didn’t hesitate in sticking with her Wildcats. “Is that even a fair question to ask?” she said to the paper. “It sucks, because I’m sure if WKU was playing anyone else I would be totally rooting for them. But in this situation I bleed blue.”
