Billy: The Early Years-Official Motion Picture Soundtrack

This soundtrack to the new movie documenting the rise of Billy Graham finds some of country’s biggest artists paying respectful homage to the nationally beloved minister. The round-robin nature of the album suits the ecumenical spirit of the man—Alan Jackson sings “Look at Me,” written by Jim Collins and Paul Overstreet, while Patty Griffin sings Alan’s “Ruth’s Prayer” (based on a poem by Billy’s wife) and gospel singer Brandon Heath delivers Patty’s “Heavenly Day.” It’s an approach that leaves Billy: The Early Years heavy on warm feelings but light on fireworks, especially on the handful of drab contemporary-Christian tracks.
