5 favorites: Welcher’s travel tunes

Photo: Chris Brown - In his third year on the Bassmaster Elite Series, Kyle Welcher has proven himself a focused and capable angler. Proving that was a second-place finish at the 2022 Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic presented by Huk. Part of his mental game is keeping a calm, low-key demeanor, and choosing travel music that fosters this mood is important.

As he explained, he likes songs with enduring appeal — something that’s easy on the ears and the mind. Basically, during long drives, he avoids songs that demand a lot of thought or emotional investment. His rule of thumb: Chose songs you can comfortably hear three or four times during a trip.
