For the soundtrack to Pixar's charming computer-animated movie CARS, the company once again enlisted its go-to composer, Randy Newman, though this time around the veteran singer-songwriter sticks solely to a vibrant instrumental score (as opposed to his pop songs for TOY STORY, MONSTERS INC., etc.). Other artists featured on the album include Sheryl Crow (the revved-up "Real Gone") and Brad Paisley (the twangy, relaxed "Behind the Clouds" and "Find Yourself"), along with Chuck Berry and John Mayer, who each offer up a different take on the cruising classic "Route 66."
