“Ballad of the Lonesome Cowboy”
Chris Stapleton has leant his voice to a new song called “The Ballad of the Lonesome Cowboy,” which will play during the end credits of Pixar’s Toy Story 4. Rolling Stone Country reports that the track was composed by singer and songwriter Randy Newman, who wrote the song “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” for the original Toy Story film and the Oscar-winning “We Belong Together” for Toy Story 3. “To me what has made the Toy Story films hold up over time has been the strength of the stories and the songs and the writing and the characters,” Stapleton says in a release about the song. “There’s something for people of all ages to enjoy in the world that is Toy Story.” The Toy Story 4 soundtrack will be released June 21, one day after the film hits theaters.
