Chris Stapleton recorded a new song, “The Ballad of the Lonesome Cowboy,” for the soundtrack to Toy Story 4, which will be available on June 21 – which is also when the film opens nationwide.
Written by Randy Newman, the song was written from the perspective of Woody, the cowboy voiced by Tom Hanks.
“To me, what has made the Toy Story films hold up over time has been the strength of the stories and the songs and the writing and the characters,” adds Chris. “There’s something for people of all ages to enjoy in the world that is Toy Story. It’s a tremendous honor to get to sing a Randy Newman song in what is without question one of the most iconic animated franchises in history.”
