Danica Patrick would love to be a country singer

By Kellie Michaels. CREATED Jul 23, 2014

NASCAR driver Danica Patrick says if she wasn't a racecar driver, she would want to be a country singer with boyfriend and fellow pro driver Ricky Stenhouse. There's just one little problem, she tells the Indy Star newspaper.  "Ricky and I both wish we could be singers. We both just love music and wish we could sing but we can't, so we could only make studio albums. … Live singing is pretty difficult if you can't sing."

Danica also revealed that if the ability to sing weren't an issue, she would like to do a duet with Miranda Lambert "because she's cool." Danica appeared in Miranda's music video two years ago for "Fastest Girl in Town."  

But Danica admits she wasn't familiar with Miranda before making the video appearance. "For not having heard the song that we were there for, and then finding out that it was already out on the radio, I felt kind of bad so I bought her album. It was already out too. So I got that and the Pistol Annies and decided that country was actually pretty good. And then I told everyone to make me CDs of country music. Ricky was really the only one that did."
