15 famous musicians you'd never guess were amazing athletes

It was no secret Bob Marley had a deep passion for soccer. He would bring a ball with him on every tour and start pickup games. Soccer star Alan Cole reportedly firmly believed Marley could have been a highly successful professional soccer player, but he refused to play on that level because of his love for music.

Brian Kelley of country super duo Florida Georgia Line was a star baseball player in high school and college. In high school, he posted a 24-8 record during his four-year career. He went 7-1 as a senior with a 2.26 ERA and 76 strikeouts in 56 innings of work. He went 6-4 as a junior with a 2.15 ERA and 53 K's in 46 innings, and was a perfect 9-0 as a sophomore with a 1.18 ERA, 54 strikeouts and a no-hitter. Afterwards he starred at Florida State -- where his profile page on the school site said his hobby was 'playing guitar' -- and Belmont, but never made it to the majors.

Country singer Sam Hunt, whose songs 'Raised On It', 'Take Your Time' and 'Leave the Night On' have become popular anthems among country music fans, had a shot at the NFL. He played quarterback for Middle Tennessee State for two years and was later invited to the Kansas City Chiefs' training camp. Two months after the failed attempt to make the team, he moved to Nashville to pursue songwriting.
