Alison Krauss Contributes New Recording to Get Low Film Soundtrack

Alison Krauss has contributed a new recording, “Lay My Burden Down,” to the soundtrack of an upcoming film, Get Low. The song was written by Aoife O’Donovan, and the track features Jerry Douglas on Dobro, Dan Tyminski on mandolin, Barry Bales on bass and Bryan Sutton on guitar. The soundtrack will be released July 27 on Rounder Records. The film stars Robert Duvall, Bill Murray, Sissy Spacek and Lucas Black and will be released by Sony Pictures Classics. The film is based on the true story of Felix “Bush” Breazeale, a Tennessee recluse who planned his own funeral in 1938 while he was still alive to enjoy it. Douglas and Academy Award-winning composer Jan A.P. Kaczmarek wrote the score. In addition, the SteelDrivers contributed to the soundtrack and appear in the film. The rest of the soundtrack includes vintage tracks from the Ink Spots, Gene Austin, Paul Whiteman and Bix Beiderbecke.
