Hey, man, is that Freedom Rock?
Nah, it's Jewel covering Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" on the soundtrack to the upcoming Reese Witherspoon romantic comedy of the same title.
The disc hits stores September 24 and also features a new song from Avril Lavigne titled "Falling Down" and material recorded for the movie by the Calling and newcomers Jason Chain and Charlotte Martin.
A DJ Homicide (Sugar Ray) remix of Uncle Kracker's "To Think I Used to Love You," from Kracker's upcoming No Stranger to Shame, is also featured on the soundtrack, along with previously released tracks from Sheryl Crow, Ryan Adams, Dolly Parton and the Freestylers.
In the movie, which opens September 27, Witherspoon plays an Alabama native who abandons her husband for a more luxurious life in New York. When her new boyfriend, played by Patrick Dempsey ("Can't Buy Me Love"), proposes, she is forced to return home to get her husband, Josh Lucas ("A Beautiful Mind"), to sign divorce papers.
