Overview

One of the surprise hits of the Sundance Film Festival also boasts one of the most enjoyable and well-rounded, country-oriented soundtracks of any film in recent memory. Highlights -- and there are many -- include Randy Scruggs and Joan Osborne's searing duet on "Passin' Thru" (from Scruggs's stunning CROWN OF JEWELS album); Lee Roy Parnell and Keb' Mo' duetting on a jazzy western swing ditty, "Are You Happy Baby"; Emmylou Harris's "Ordinary Heart"; and Flaco Jimenez's spirited Tex-Mex workout, "Baila Este Ritmo." Newcomer Brad Paisley contributes a clever bit of uptempo contemporary country, "Me Neither"; Alison Krauss offers her heartbreaking "Stay"; the ever-reliable BR5-49 follows with the irresistible Mel Tillis two-step, "Honky Tonk Song"; and Abra Moore's tender, self-penned examination of "Happiness" is a literate, atmospheric, and thought-provoking moment. There's a little bit of everything here, and not a dud in sight.
