During the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, wanted to find out what music is inspiring US athletes. So we asked a variety of Olympic competitors what song (or playlist of songs) they’ll be grooving to before they compete. We’ll run these throughout the Games. Good luck, Team USA!

“I don’t have a specific song that I listen to but the artists I listen to during training are first and foremost Wilco — they are my absolute favorite band/artist back to the Uncle Tupelo days. I also frequently listen to Avett Brothers, the Killers, and Willie Nelson. A lot of alternative/folk — never pop.”
