Madison Gate Records just released the soundtrack to Hatfields & McCoys, the History Channel miniseries starring Kevin Costner as Devil Anse Hatfield and Bill Paxton as Randall McCoy. Costner and his band Modern West are featured on Famous For Killing Each Other: Music From and Inspired by Hatfields & McCoys, with Costner and his group also responsible for writing the songs and producing the album.
The album features the miniseries’ theme song, “I Know These Hills,” as well as 18 other songs.
According to Costner, the album is “a musical picture of time and place with original songs and instrumentals that we hope can transport you back in time and perhaps help you feel the excitement I felt while filming this epic story. We weren’t trying to specifically recreate the music of that era. We wanted to capture the heart and the soul of the families who were torn apart in the Hatfields and McCoys feud. Even though the musical soul of our album is centered in the hills of Appalachia, in the time right after the Civil War, the feelings we tried to portray are universal.”
