THE 2018 AWARD CEREMONY IS SCHEDULED FOR TONIGHT, NOVEMBER 14. In advance of the announcement of category winners, an article by Chris Lawhorn for womensrunning.com suggests the nominated songs may make great additions to an exercise playlist. The article lists one song per category and provides the number of beats per minute that can be experienced while listening.
The top BPM count song may help enliven and encourage country music fan’s workouts. Those with the lower BPM numbers can help with warm-ups and cool-downs. Links to music samples from Run Hundred are provided.
Thomas Rhett – Crash and Burn – 129 BPM
Kacey Musgraves – High Horse – 120 BPM
Lauren Alaina – Road Less Traveled – 113 BPM
Sugarland – Still The Same – 106 BPM
Little Big Town – Summer Fever – 105 BPM
Luke Combs – Beautiful Crazy – 103 BPM
Sam Hunt – Body Like a Back Road – 99 BPM
Jason Aldean & Miranda Lambert – Drowns The Whiskey – 90 BPM
Bebe Rexha & Florida Georgia Line – Meant to Be – 77 BPM
Carrie Underwood – Cry Pretty – 70 BPM
The title, “Body Like a Back Road” seems appropriate for music meant to motivate exercising.
When I viewed the piece, the end of the article was followed by a “Stay On Topic” section with additional articles highlighting workout music choices.
If finding enjoyable new current music is a challenge for you, this brief article’s playlist may be a gift that keeps on giving, each time the music syncs with your pumped-up heartbeat.
Good luck to all the talented artists tonight.
RUN & MOVE HAPPY!
