The Civil Wars and T Bone Burnett Collaborate for Original Soundtrack to A Place At the Table Documentary Set for February 2013 Release
The Civil Wars and T Bone Burnett not only came together to create the soundtrack for the documentary, A Place At The Table, but the two are also uniting to donate their profits and royalties from this soundtrack to The Participant Foundation.
The original soundtrack, featuring 14 songs, will be out February 26, just before the premiere of A Place At The Table on March 1.
A Place At The Table is a documentary highlighting the growing hunger crisis in America.
“Being a part of A Place At The Table opened my eyes to an epidemic that is happening in our country right now—underneath many of our noses,” said Christian music recording artist Joy Williams. “It’s happening to our neighbors, to our friends, to children. It’s a silent battle that can be won, if we as a nation set our minds to ending it. Linking arms with T Bone Burnett to create music for such a timely and important film as this was an honor.”
The Civil Wars and T Bone Burnett have pledged to donate 100% of their net profits and royalties from this soundtrack to The Participant Foundation.
The Civil Wars recently won “Best Folk Album” and “Best Country Duo/Group Performance” at 54th annual GRAMMY Awards. T Bone Burnett is a 13-time Grammy Award winning producer and recording artist.
