Alan Jackson is headed to the big screen – or at least his music is. He has recorded “A Million Ways to Die,” the title track from the upcoming comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West. The movie features a score by Emmy Award-winning composer and conductor Joel McNeely, who co-wrote Alan’s new song along with Seth MacFarlane, the film’s director, producer, co-writer and co-star. Seth personally approached Alan to record the song for the film.
In the film, Seth plays cowardly sheep farmer Albert, who is left by his girlfriend after he backs out of a gunfight. A mysterious and beautiful woman arrives in town and helps him find his courage. They begin to fall in love, but when her husband, a notorious outlaw, shows up set on revenge, Albert has to put his newly-found courage to the test. Charlize Theron, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Giovanni Ribisi, Sarah Silverman and Neil Patrick Harris also star.
“A Million Ways to Die” debuted earlier this week on ew.com and is available for purchase no on iTunes. The film’s soundtrack will hit stores May 27 with the film arriving in theaters on May 30.
