Brad Paisley Pens Two Songs for ‘Cars 3′ Soundtrack
Brad Paisley is lending his musical talents to the Cars film franchise once again. The singer, who has had his music featured in both the Cars and Cars 2 movies, returns to assist on the Cars 3 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.
The film's soundtrack will be available on June 16 and includes eight tracks from artists like Dan Auerbach, James Bay, Andra Day and ZZ Ward, among others. Paisley contributed to the music with two instrumental tracks: "Truckaroo" and "Thunder Hollow Breakdown."
"Brad Paisley was part of both Cars and Cars 2," Tom MacDougall, Executive VP of music at Disney, says in a press release. "We knew he could have some fun with a demolition derby and he just killed it. His down-home country tracks really add to the scene's action and humor." Cars 3 is set to hit theaters on June 16, the same day the soundtrack is available for purchase.
Paisley has a busy summer ahead of him, as he is currently on the road as part of his 2017 Weekend Warrior World Tour. The singer recently released his new album, Love and War, which hit No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart following its release on April 21. The record included collaborations with artists from multiple genres including R&B producer and rapper Timbaland, the Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger, Bill Anderson and John Fogerty.
