Soundtrack Review and GIVEAWAY: The Identical, now playing in theaters {ends 9/5}

*Disclosure: Thanks to Propeller Consulting, LLC for providing the prize for this giveaway. Choice of winners and opinions are 100% my own and not influenced by monetary compensation. I did receive a sample of the product in exchange for this review and post.

Recently I was able to receive a copy of The Identical soundtrack to review, and it's definitely a good listen. I wasn't a country music fan until recently, when I was able to travel to Nashville for Yelp Spring Break, and lately I have been listening to more country music; some of my favorites are country rock, which has both country and rock 'n roll influences.

The movie (The Identical) is currently playing in Michigan-area theaters, and will be released nationwide on September 5th.

Official synopsis:

The IDENTICAL tells the compelling story of twin brothers unknowingly separated at birth during the Great Depression. DREXEL HEMSLEY becomes an iconic 50’s rock ’n’ roll star, while RYAN WADE (Blake Rayne) struggles to balance his love for music and pleasing his father. The Reverend Wade (Ray Liotta) and his wife (Ashley Judd) are sure their adopted son has been gifted and called by God to be a preacher. But Ryan challenges his parent’s vision for his life, and unflinchingly chooses to launch his own music career with his best friend (Seth Green). Encouraged by his wife (Erin Cottrell) and employer (Joe Pantoliano), Ryan embarks on an unpredictable, provocative path - performing the legendary music of Drecel Hemsley in sold out venues all across the country. As the brothers destinies tragically collide, Ryan discovers that Drexel is his identical twin which leads him to question everything he’s ever believed about God, family, and his own identity.

I received a sampler CD of The Identical, autographed by Blake Rayne. Some of my favorite songs on the CD are:

  • Nashville Tonight (Blake Rayne) - upbeat, fun song
  • Mellow Down Easy (The Morph Kings) - a little slower and different but a good song to relax to
  • It Don't Come Easy (Darcey & Mo) - more upbeat and less "country" than the other songs on the soundtrack
  • One Child (New Life Theme) - Christopher Carmichael and Klaus Badelt

If you like country music, I'd suggest checking out the full CD, which you can purchase here.

One of my lucky readers will also win a copy of the sampler CD! (unsigned)

  1. This sounds like such a good story! My favorite country song is Lady Antebellum - When You Got A Good Thing. It was my husband & I's wedding song. = ]

  2. I've not heard of this movie. Sounds very intriguing. I don't listen to a lot of music but when I do it's Broadway. Of any country star I would say maybe Tim McGraw.

    ps: my book arrived. Thank you very much!

    1. I haven't actually seen the movie yet, but I want to. And you're welcome! Enjoy.

  3. My favorite is Toby Keith!

  4. I haven't heard of this but country music is growing on me (I've lived in TN for 20 years now!) My favorite country singer is probably Faith Hill or Shania Twain.

  5. I am not a huge fan of just pure country but I like Carrie Underwood and Blake Shelton.

  6. I've always loved George Strait.

  7. Garth Brooks is my all time favorite!

  8. I'm not a big country music fan but it can keep my feet moving. I liked "The Identical". It had a good message.
