Country Sings Disney

posted by Nell Minow

Some of country’s brightest stars sing some of Disney’s most hummable tunes on this new release. It’s a pleasure to hear soundtrack hits like Rascal Flatts’ “Life is a Highway,” from “Cars” and Tim McGraw’s “Wherever the Trail May Lead” from the under-rated “Home on the Range,” but it is the unpredictable choices that make this CD worthwhile. Faith Hill sings Ariel’s “Part of Your World” from “The Little Mermaid” and the wonderful “Dumbo” soundtrack is represented with “When I See an Elephant Fly” from Josh Gracin and “Baby Mine” from SHeDAISY. This is one for kids and parents to enjoy together.

    I still scratch my head in wonder when I see Bonnie Raitt attached to “Home on the Range”. It is interesting that these are mostly later, under rated or unrecognized Disney tunes with big stars singing them. I may have to pick up a copy, if only for more Ms Raitt, and Brad Paisley’s contribution as well.
