LEXINGTON - Kentucky receiver Gerad Parker has been plagued with bad luck when it comes to injuries during his collegiate career, but he's had much better luck in another pursuit - karaoke contests.
He's won several contests with his favorite song, "Friends in Low Places," by Garth Brooks.
"That's the song I go to whenever I get in those contests," Parker admitted. "I really enjoy that song, and I do it better than anything else."
Parker was a singer before he was a football payer. His father's side of the family sang in the church choir and he sang in the high school choir.
"My sister sings and has a great voice," Parker said. "Singing is something I grew up with and decided to continue to enjoy when I got to college. I've won two or three karaoke contests just fooling around and having a good time with guys on the team."
