The tradition, the skill, the insanity of athletes dedicating almost every second of their lives to being the absolute best in what they do, it’s truly a must-see sporting spectacle.
As most people do while watching, I was remembering my glory days as an “athlete” when I got to thinking… what country music artists were also athletes?
