PITTSBURGH - Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, seriously injured in a motorcycle accident last month, will play in a celebrity golf tournament next week and appear in a music video.

Officials with American Century Championship, a tournament in Lake Tahoe, Nev., said Friday that Roethlisberger has committed to play there next weekend, July 14-16.


Also, a spokeswoman for The PovertyNeck Hillbillies, a country music group in Pittsburgh, announced Friday that Roethlisberger will be shooting a music video with the group on Tuesday at Heinz Field.


Roethlisberger underwent seven hours of facial reconstruction surgery June 12 after ramming his motorcycle into a car that turned left in front of him on a Pittsburgh street. Roethlisberger broke his jaw and nose when his head smashed into the car's windshield, and he was thrown over the car onto the pavement. He was cited for riding without a license and not wearing a helmet.

Yeah, I got a same question. I'm guessing PovertyNeck Hillbillies is the name of the band. What kind of music do they play and in what kind of music video is he going to be? And when it's out please let us know, guys. Thanks

Yes there pretty good, 5 0f the 6 members are from Uniontown PA. The sixth member is from WV. The fiddle player has a Steelers painted fiddle and there always wearing Steelers shirts and whatnot. Also thier manager is the former manager of the group Alabama, he discovered them playing at a county fair, and Alabama was retiring so he needed a new band.

I saw them at the Steelers pep rally this past season at Heinz Field. If you like country music, I'm sure you will like them. I was not impressed.

Oh, man. So it's a country song band? Maan, one of the few things I don't like about your country is the country song. No offence, I just didn't like it when there were some weird voiced man singing songs that are obviously copied from some pop songs. :smile: Again, didn't mean to offend anyone! It just wasn't my taste.

I am all for the cowboy hat and the tight wranglers (a girl can only hope!) I just dont like the song. I will still watch the video and everything. I can mute the song!
