Adams, Petty, My Morning Jacket on 'Elizabethtown' Soundtrack

Published: 2005-08-25
The newest film from director Cameron Crowe comes in the form of October's Elizabethtown. Known just as much for his days as a rock journalist (as portrayed in his movie Almost Famous) as quality romantic-comedies, the soundtracks to Crowe's films are often an event unto themselves.

The Elizabethtown soundtrack should be no different, with brand new tracks from Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham, and My Morning Jacket, who actually appear in the movie as a band called Ruckus. Once again, Crowe's wife Nancy Wilson of Heart fame has provided the musical score.

Other tracks featured on the album come from Elton John, the Hollies, and Wheat. Notorious rocker Ryan Adams also gets in on the action, supplying the song "Come Pick Me" from his breakthrough Heartbreaker album. Singing the Crowe/Wilson penned song "Same in Any Language" are newcomers I Nine.

Starring Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst, Elizabethtown tells the story of a shoe-designer who finds unexpected romance with a flight attendant when returning home for his father's funeral. Check out more about the music of Cameron Crowe's latest at
