Overview

The 2006 adaptation of Mary O'Hare's My Friend Flicka (here titled Flicka) has yielded an album's worth of heartfelt songs about horses and the girls who love them. It seems like Tim McGraw (who produced the album and appeared in the movie) approached the project from the standpoint of a father making a mixed tape for his horse-crazy daughter. It's a good mix of old and new, slick and dusty. There are some sugary ballads by the Warren Brothers, Natasha Bedingfield, and Hank Williams' granddaughter Holly Williams, but McGraw doesn't leave it at that, throwing in a gritty live track by his road band, the Dancehall Doctors, and a spare version of Donovan's 1965 single "Catch the Wind." These are welcome additions; the warm, nostalgic lull of "Catch the Wind" and the gritty, country & western bar swagger of "The Fireman" shake up the otherwise smooth and polished array of contemporary country and pop artists found here. Of note to McGraw fans will be the previously unreleased single, "My Little Girl," a ballad that hearkens back to other McGraw hits like "Don't Take the Girl" or "It's Your Love." And the swelling rendition of "All the Pretty Little Ponies" is a fitting end to the compilation. Those who enjoyed Flicka will likely enjoy this soundtrack, as it captures some of the poignancy and nostalgia of the film.

This is potentially the most unique soundtrack I've ever heard. It's great for any country music-lover that wants a soothing CD.
