Several major artists have teamed up with AT&T to provide exclusive motivational songs for the U.S. Olympic Team as it gears up to compete in Beijing.

3 Doors Down, Sheryl Crow, Lady Antebellum and Nelly are among the artists who will contribute new songs to the AT&T Team USA Soundtrack, which will be available for download in August during the 2008 Olympic Games.

"It's really inspiring to see world-class athletes compete and give their all at the Olympic Games," said Crow. "It's my job as an artist to encourage others through music, and I'm honored to work to support Team USA through this soundtrack."

The songs will be available for download in August on AT&T wireless phones and online at att.net. The songs will debut during the NBC and Telemundo broadcasts of the games, with proceeds benefitting Team USA.
