I know it's been awhile since I posted a movie soundtrack. So sorry. I got a little sidetracked. Anyway...
Number 97 on the top 100 soundtracks of all time (last counted in 2002) is from the movie Nashville. The story centers around the country and gospel music businesses in the same name as the film. It was released in 1975 and is considered one of Altman's greatest films. (Well, with that said I have to put this one on my queue.)
Robert Altman decided not to hire country stars to fulfill the roles but actors. He even went further to have his actors write and perform the songs. Here is the one called "I'm Easy", both written and performed by Keith Carradine. (Okay, I had no idea that he could sing let alone play guitar.)
As with most Robert Altman films, Nashville had an ensemble cast. There are twenty four of them. Some of the cast members are: Keith Carradine, Lily Tomlin, Jefff Goldblum, Scott Glenn, Shelly Duvall and Ned Beatty.
