Shelton Remakes "Footloose" For Warner Soundtrack
Atlantic Records / Warner Music Nashville will release the movie soundtrack for the upcoming Paramount Pictures film, Footloose. Blake Shelton offers his take on the classic title song, while Victoria Justice and Hunter Hayes duet on the movie’s love theme, “Almost Paradise.” The other remakes of hits from the original soundtrack are “Holding Out For A Hero” by Ella Mae Bowen, and “Let’s Hear It For The Boy” by Jana Kramer.
Coming Sept. 27, the album includes eight new songs from Big & Rich ft. Gretchen Wilson, Cee Lo Green ft. Kenny Wayne Shepherd, The Smashing Pumpkins, David Banner, Whitney Duncan, Lissie, Zac Brown, and A Thousand Horses.
Memphis-bred writer/director Craig Brewer remade Footloose, following his success with films Hustle & Flow, and Black Snake Moan. The storyline recalls the 1984 Kevin Bacon flick, with Bacon’s part being reprised by Kenny Wormald. The new teen in the small town falls in love with Julianne Hough’s character Ariel, the daughter of Dennis Quaid’s character Reverend Shaw Moore.
