Inspiring many readers with its uplifting message about family and faith, The Shack is making its way to theaters with the help of a soundtrack that will leave fans of the story even more emotional and motivated.

Compiling together artists from country, Christian and pop music, The Shack soundtrack hosts some familiar faces with songs that are sure to make listeners feel the passion behind the theme of the film. Featured artists include Dan + Shay, Brett Eldredge, Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley and a duet by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.

Inspired by the story of the best-selling novel, Hill and McGraw use their powerful harmonies to convey the strength and guidance that the characters of The Shack come to find. Playing the character of Willie in the movie, McGraw really connects the track to the heart of the matter and understands how important the song is to lending itself to the film.

While the song won’t be released as an instant grat track with the album until February 3, Dan + Shay will contribute their upcoming single, “When I Pray For You,” to the listing. Its impactful tie to the story as well as to their catalogue of hits will match the emotional depth of their lyrical repertoire.

Other artists featured include Kelly Clarkson, Needtobreathe, Aloe Blacc, Skillet, Lecrae, Hillsong United and many more.

The Shack soundtrack will be released on February 24, with the film following its release the next week on March 3.
