‘I Saw the Light’ Soundtrack Set for March Release

Twitter

The soundtrack for the highly-anticipated Hank Williams biopic I Saw the Light is set for release on March 25.

The album will feature many of Williams’ biggest career hits, performed by the film’s lead actor, Tom Hiddleston. The Saddle Spring Boys, a backing band comprised of the most talented musicians in country music, accompany Hiddleston on “Jambalaya,” “Honky Tonkin’,” “Hey Good Lookin’,” and many others. Other classic hits from the era, including Eddy Arnold‘s “Anytime,” and George Morgan‘s “Please Don’t Let Me Love You” are also featured on the compilation.

Acclaimed country singer Rodney Crowell co-produced the album alongside G. Marq RoswellCarter Little and Ray Kennedy. Although many Williams’ fans have voiced their concern over Hiddleston’s ability to properly perform the country legend’s tracks, Crowell says he was impressed by the Englishman’s vocal talents.

“After nearly a month spent collaborating with this gifted artist, I’m as respectful of the man’s work ethic as I’m mystified by his transformational skills,” Crowell said in a press release. “Without a doubt, the filmmakers chose the right actor for the job.”

I Saw the Light is slated to hit theaters nationwide on April 1.
