Hottest State

Hottest State     To celebrate the release of The Hottest State soundtrack, PlugInMusic.com is giving away a copy of the book, signed by Ethan Hawke and a copy of the soundtrack signed by Jesse Harris. Enter now for your chance to win!

     With the soundtrack to the feature film The Hottest State (Hickory Records), Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Jesse Harris and the movie's writer, director and supporting cast member Ethan Hawke have done something completely different — and quite possibly unprecedented. They've chosen the music exclusively from the songbook of one writer — that would be Harris — matching up the selections with a diverse lineup of renowned performers including Willie Nelson, Feist, Bright Eyes, Emmylou Harris, The Black Keys, M. Ward, Norah Jones, Brad Mehldau and Cat Power. All are at the tops of their games on this scintillating soundtrack, which doubles as a captivating showcase for Harris' songs.

     'The Hottest State' was released August 7th on Hickory Records, an imprint of Sony/ATV Music Publishing. 'The Hottest State' soundtrack follows the debut album from American Idol finalist Elliott Yamin, released on Hickory earlier this year.
