Walt Disney Records announced today that country superstar Brad Paisley will have two original tracks on the upcoming Cars 3 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. “Truckaroo” and “Thunder Hollow Breakdown” accompany the film’s action-packed Crazy 8 demolition derby sequence that puts Lightning and Cruz amid total chaos.
Pre-order for the soundtrack begins tomorrow (HERE) and will be released on June 16 as the movie opens in theaters.
“Brad Paisley was part of both ‘Cars’ and ‘Cars 2,’” said Tom MacDougall, executive vice president of music at Disney. “We knew he could have some fun with a demolition derby, and he just killed it. His down-home country tracks add to the scene’s action and humor.”
The Cars 3 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features “Run That Race,” an original song written and performed by nine-time Grammy® winner Dan Auerbach and also features “Ride,” an original end-credit song performed by ZZ Ward, featuring musician Gary Clark Jr. Written by Ward, Evan Bogart and Dave Bassett.
