Adkins’ anthem at Baylor in front of old crush

Trace Adkins is singing for his college crush.

Adkins is performing the national anthem before top-ranked

Baylor’s game Saturday against Texas A&M. The Lady Bears are

coached by Kim Mulkey, who was a pigtailed point guard at Louisiana

Tech when Adkins was a freshman walk-on football player there.

When doing a cover version of the song ”One in a Million”

during a concert last year, the country music star relayed the

story of having a crush on Mulkey when they were in college 30

years ago. He had seen her again after watching a Baylor game on

TV.

Adkins, who says Mulkey didn’t even know who he was then, says

he told the story off the cuff.

They were formally introduced for the first time before

Saturday’s game.
