After a long hiatus, and some nervous fans, former NCAA Champion Eugene Godsoe and fellow swimmer Greg Pearsall have taken their “Take Your Marks” band of swimmers to Charlotte with their latest cover of “Wagon Wheel” by Old Crow Medicine Show.
Godsoe is on the keyboard, Pearsall is on lead guitar and vocals. On this track, teammates Nelson Westby and super-sprinter Josh Schneider fill in the harmony on the chorus. And of course Westby is in the video, giving the shot some sex-appeal (and playing the acoustic Weber Grill).
These guys are legit musicians – this version might be even better than the original. Listen, like it, share it.
Who’s up for an Omaha jam session? Maclin Davis also has a pretty good band of his own. Katie Hoff can drop a mean flow. Who else has musical skills?
