Much like Reese Witherspoon's transplanted Southern belle character, the songs on Sweet Home Alabama have their hearts and affections rooted deep in the heart of Dixie. Sheryl Crow is almost unrecognizable yodeling and twanging on her version of Hank Williams's country-porch picker, and Shannon McNally adds grace to a smoky, strings-and-blues guitar-strewn number. Uncle Kracker's acoustic-based cut lopes like a cowpoke and Dolly Parton contributes a vintage square-dance stomper, while newcomer Jason Chain's "You Got Me," a standout, is halfway between roots rock and R.E.M.-ish jangle. Surprisingly, noted alt-country leaner Ryan Adams channels the churning, belching riffs and mannerisms of Led Zeppelin, and Jewel chooses to rock out on Lynyrd Skynyrd's classic with distortion and sultry, weathered vocals. Other deviations from country style don't fare as well--Avril Lavigne's "Falling Down" is generic alt-rock lite, the Freestylers' raucous jazz-funk scatting is misplaced, and the Calling's faithful take on "Keep Your Hands to Yourself" is strained rather than lighthearted. In the end, roughly half of Alabama's tracks qualify as true gems in the rough, although wading through the filler to find them might cause some old-fashioned country-style heartbreak of your own. --Annie Zaleski

One cannot help but instantly fall in love with the soundtrack to "Sweet Home Alabama". Where else can you find country, bluegrass, alt-country, rock, and dance? The songs on the cd cover a broad range of musical tastes and include some of the hottest singers of today and a few of the legends from the past.
Jewel kicks off the cd with a suprisingly awesome version of the legendary Lynyrd Skynyrd megahit "Sweet Home Alabama". This song has been redone in the past, but I have to say that this version is the best I've heard yet. Where most would trash the quality, Jewel adds her own special touch and the result is rockin!
Country group SHeDaisy have one of the strongest performances of the album with "Mine All Mine". Written by Kristyn Osborn, one third of the sister act, "Mine All Mine" reflects the struggle of the movie's character, who is torn between the man of her future and the man of her past. The harmony's of the Osborn sisters quite takes your breath away. Simply stunning.
The biggest surprise of the album, in my opinion, is Avril Lavigne's "Falling Down". What you expect is the punk rock riffs that have made her popular. What you get is a mature, well written, beautifully delivered song about "falling back down to Earth". It's definantely one of the highlights of the soundtrack.
One of the most enjoyable performances on the album comes from veteran rocker Sheryl Crow, who lends her voice to the legendary Hank Williams' "Long Gone Lonesome Blues". Gone is the rock queen we've all grown accustomed to hearing and in comes the laid-back, guitar-picking country diva from within. It's amazing to listen to Sheryl sing this song and you're almost transported back to the golden days of country and the Grand Ole Opry.

Loved this CD. Bought it after I saw the movie. The movie wasn't great, but it was sweet and you left feeling good, what more could you want. The music was even better. Especially loved "Bring on the Day" by Charlotte Martin, "You Got Me", but Jason Chain, and really loved Shannon McNally's "Now that I know". They should be playing these on the radio. Great mixture of different styles of music so it wasn't boring. And, I actually liked Jewel's version of Sweet Home Alabama after I listened to it a few more times. Buy it.

One would think that a movie about the South would at least have southern bands singing the songs. No one, not even Jewel, can top the orignial Sweet Home by Lynyrd Skynyrd, so why they didn't include the original is a mystery. Also, they left out the Charlie Daniels Band "A Few More Rednecks", which was in the movie.
The good side is that Uncle Kracker's song is hella cool, and that The Calling does a faithful cover of "Keep Your Hands To Yourself" Ya should prolly just download the good songs off the internet instead of spendin'cash on this CD.

I love this movie. Finally decided to invest in the soundtrack - how disappointed I was that the music on this cd has nothing to do with the ORIGINAL movie except some of the titles. My library consists of many a soundtrack and I've never heard of not having the movie artists. Based on this I have no reason to ever buy it. Isn't that what the word "original" means.

the film, cute, the story, predictable, the soundtrack, interesting. some of the songs were a real treat (the calling, Jason chain) and i love jewel as much as the next alt rock fan but a lynyrd skynyrd cover?...Please! just kinda gave me the feel they should have put the dynamite under them when they sat in the studio and decided to try it. Also, a little disappointed by the avril levigne song, but hey she's young, she'll learn. generally though, you liked the movie you will like the cd.

...and I liked this soundtrack. I am not very discerning about music, nor do I know much about it, but I loved this great mixture of different types of music.
Best of all, I like that while listening to it, I am reminded of scenes from the movie, which I loved.
Makes me want to sing along...and to see the movie again!

The soundtrack for Sweet Home Alabama is fabulously good. The 'Sweet Home Alabama' song remake by Jewel is awesome because how can you not like the Sweet Home Alabama song by anyone? The other songs on the CD are just as good to listen to, so the music is great and one to always listen to. Many of the songs are actually in the movie unlike other soundracks who just randomly put songs on the soundtrack that aren't even in the movie. The money that I spent on this CD was not wasted, I suggest you go pick one up.

I had to type something to these "so-called" Jewel fans. Her cover rocks and if you like southern rock you will love this soundtrack. I recently moved away from Georgia and found this movie fun, scenic and romantic. Great music too!
