Paul Finebaum Wrote a Country Song Titled "Here and My Crazy Dreams"

Paul Finebaum, the “Voice of the SEC” and ESPN’s newest radio personality, wrote a country song titled “Here and My Crazy Dreams” with Walt Aldridge. Finebaum wrote the song while he was on a 202-day break between his former radio gig in Birmingham and ESPN.

“I jokingly said to him, ‘I’ve always wanted to write a song,’” Finebaum recalls. “It’s the kind of thing you say to a songwriter. He came back to me and said, ‘If you are serious, I would like to talk to you about it.’”

Al.com uploaded the song that includes lyrical gems like this one:

I could stay like they thought I would

Live the way they all said I should

But every day, I’d have to live caught in between

Here and my crazy dreams

So if you were wondering how Finebaum, who also began working on a book, spent his time away from radio, now you know. If you don’t know who Paul Finebaum is yet – I suspect many of you do – don’t worry, ESPN will force him into your TVs this Fall.

*The clip above is the intro from the first day of Finebaum’s radio show on the ESPN platform. It’s a salute to his callers, most of whom are from the state of Alabama.

Because you want to see it first!
