See the USA Olympic Swim Team Sing ‘Chicken Fried’ in Carpool Karaoke

YouTube/USA Swimming

The USA Swim Team is on their way to Rio, and they’re documenting their good times for the world to see. The team is road-tripping it from Atlanta, Ga. to the Games and partaking in some carpool karaoke along the way.

The official USA Swimming Youtube account posted the team singing along to the radio and having a blast. Broken up into several different cars, the swimmers video themselves rocking out to tons of different songs. The highlight of the montage is definitely Michael Phelp’s car singing Zac Brown Band’s “Chicken Fried” while holding up an American flag.

Check out Michael Phelps, Ryan Lochte, Missy Franklin and more in the video below!

You have to love how they joke by playing “Call Me Maybe” in the beginning and then wave it off. That’s the song they tackled in 2012 that spread like wildfire on the internet.

The Olympic swimming events kick off this Saturday with the Men’s 400m Individual Medley at 12:02 p.m. EST. The swimming competitions will end on Aug. 16 with the Men’s 10k Marathon.

We wish the USA Olympic Swim Team the best of luck in Rio — both in competition and in whatever their lodging situation is.

The 2016 Rio Olympics opening ceremonies begins Friday, Aug. 5 at 7:30 p.m. EST on NBC.
