Most of the songs I think are of folk/rock genre because of the artists. I was actually surprised to see KiD CuDi on the list since I think he’s the only RnB/rap artist to be included on it. (I super love his “Erase Me” song.) I’m also looking forward to hear Miranda Lambert’s song in the soundtrack and I think it’s going to be great. What do you think of the soundtrack?
