The GRAMMY Awards®, held this year at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on February 10th, is the one true sport enjoyed by the music business every year. So it only makes sense that the GRAMMY®s would collaborate with leading athletes to get their favorite music picks in advance of the “big game.”
Top athletes have teamed with The Recording Academy® to create motivating playlists featuring GRAMMY®-winning recordings exclusively for Rdio. New York Mets player Ike Davis, UFC competitor Frankie Edgar, Olympic synchronized swimmer Tracy Little, Philadelphia 76ers’ Jason Richardson, and Super Bowl-bound San Francisco 49ers’ Aldon Smith have each created “A Champion's Playlist.” They’ve picked GRAMMY®-winning songs from the past 50 years in order to give you an idea of what they’re hearing in their headphones before they take home a championship.
Each athlete will present their playlist to their Twitter followers. The athlete whose playlist receives the most votes between now and February 1 will choose a winner at random to win a trip for two to attend the 55th Annual GRAMMY Awards®. Get the full contest details on the GRAMMY®s blog and be sure to keep track of the scoreboard.
