Pure Country 2—The Gift, the sequel to the hugely successful Pure Country film, will hit theaters Friday (10/15). Katrina Elam stars as a rising country singer, and George Strait, who lead the cast in the original, returns for the follow-up. Dean Cain appears in Pure Country 2, under the direction of Chris Cain who worked on the original and Young Guns.
Black River is releasing the movie’s soundtrack. “We were privileged to get to be involved with the movie on so many levels that it seemed only natural for us to release the soundtrack,” stated Black River President Jimmy Nichols. “This project represents a return to family values and the power of faith. Katrina is a well-deserved star. We’re thrilled to be a part of it all.”
The Steve Dorff-produced soundtrack mainly features Elam, and also includes a bonus track written for the movie and performed by Jonathan Cain (of Journey fame), Nichols, and Sarah Darling.
Dorff remarked, “This soundtrack is loaded with great songs performed by one of the most talented vocalists I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with, Katrina Elam! I’m also very proud of having elements of the score included on this CD. Chris Cain has once again set a wonderful example of how film and music can work so well hand in hand.” More at www.purecountry2thegift.com.
