KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Singer-songwriter Melissa Etheridge might have a new hit song on her hands. And she has Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid to thank.
Etheridge released the song “Chocolate Cake” Wednesday on the NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football” show.
“Of course it’s called ‘Chocolate Cake,’ you know for Andy Reid, there’s the Kansas City Chiefs and coming back to the Super Bowl is like chocolate cake,” Etheridge said in the episode.
The Leavenworth, Kansas native’s song references an interview in which Reid makes reference to winning being like chocolate cake.
“If you like chocolate cake and you eat a piece of it and then you have one hanging in front of your face, you probably want to eat that too,” Reid said. “Not much is going to stop you. I mean, that’s what you think of the Super Bowl. It’s chocolate cake with the ultimate frosting, and you’re gonna try and get it if you can.
Etheridge apparently identified with the sentiment and wrote an entire song about it.
“Once you’ve tasted something this sweet and good for the first time, going back is the only thing you care about,” Etheridge sang.
Etheridge makes it no secret that she’s a huge Chiefs fan. She even sang the national anthem before a Chiefs game earlier this season.
Etheridge also released a new song two years ago after the Chiefs won the AFC championship and just before the team won the Super Bowl for the first time in 50 years.
