Life Is a Highway

From the Disney movie


Music by Randy Newman

Originally Performed by Rascal Flatts

"Life Is a Highway" is a song written by Tom Cochrane, from his 1991 album Mad Mad World. In 2006, American country band Rascal Flatts covered this song for the Disney/Pixar animated film Cars. The movie was released on June 9, 2006. The song sold a large quantity of digital downloads, leading to a top ten peak on the Billboard Hot 100. In addition, the cover was placed as a bonus track on later versions of the album Me and My Gang, covered at a Chuck-E-Cheese show by Jasper T. Jowls, and also was included on their Greatest Hits Volume 1. This version also won the "Favorite Song from a Movie" award at the 33rd People's Choice Awards. Neil Donell covered the song on Disney's Karaoke Series: Cars and Songs and Story: Cars. The instrumental of the Rascal Flatts' cover version was prominently featured in the Top Gear American special aired February 11, 2007. The song is included on the soundtrack for Lego Rock Band. In other Cars media, the song can be heard during races in the video game Cars: Mater-National Championship, and is one of the songs selected by DJ for a Cars Land show called DJ's Dance 'n' Drive.

The group competed in and won the fourth season of The Sing-Off on NBC in 2013 and have gone on the great success with a steady touring schedule and an ever-growing fan base. The lead tenor, who fronts the group and sings most of the solos, is Austin Brown. Tenor is sung by Rob Lundquist, baritone harmony by Adam Chance, and Tim Foust sings bass with vocal percussion provided by beatboxer Adam Rupp. Although Brown is Home Free's primary soloist, all of the other members occasionally sing solos as well. This is a top-notch recording that shows their tight harmonies and impressive arrangements.

Metropolitones : Time For a Breakdown    onsale

"Time for a Breakdown" is the second full-size album (they also have released a pair of nice sampler CDs) of New York City's premier Seven Sisters a cappella group, which refers to seven elite womens' universities and colleges. Five of the eight current members graduated from Vassar, two from Wellesley and one from Mount Holyoke. The group was a 2009 contestant on NBC and Sony's "The Sing Off," which was inspired by the Harmony Sweepstakes. The MetropoliTones bring us 13 sweet-sounding covers, some favorites are the En Vogue hit "My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It)," Paula Cole's "The Ladder," Az Yet's "Hard to Say I'm Sorry," Razorlight's "Golden Touch," Rascal Flatts' "Life Is A Highway," KT Tunstall's "Black Horse & The Cherry Tree," Camille's "Ta Douleur," John Lennon's "Imagine," Bill Withers' "Lean on Me" and the Wailin Jennys poignant traditional tune "The Parting Glass." The group has a killer live show, and an audience-pleasing sound with rich harmonies and beautiful leads. We enjoyed every cut of "Time for a Breakdown," and think you'll love this young, fast-rising, talented all-woman ensemble!

Songlist: My Lovin' (You're Never Gonna Get It), The Ladder, The Remedy, Hard To Say I'm Sorry, Golden Touch, Life Is A Highway, Refuge (When It's Cold Outside), Black Horse & The Cherry Tree, Lie Still Little Bottle, Ta Douleur, Imagine, Lean On Me, The Parting Glass
