United States triple-jumper Christian Taylor isn’t looking for music to get his blood pumping between jumps at the Olympics. He wants to be as relaxed as possible, so he throws some country on the iPod.
“That’s probably way out there,” Taylor says. “I don’t know, it’s just something that helps me sleep. I sleep great with it. I don’t know if it’s the stories. It’s almost like a lullaby for a grown man.”
The Florida Gator has seen Lady Antebellum in concert and also calls Keith Urban one of his favorites.
