Lady Antebellum

The music in the new film The Best Of Me (in theaters Oct. 17), based on the best-selling Nicholas Sparks novel, has a country edge to it. The soundtrack, which will be released on Tuesday, features many of the format’s top artists -- including Hunter Hayes, Thomas Rhett, Thompson Square, and Kacey Musgraves.

The emotional centerpiece of the album features seven-time Grammy-winning trio Lady Antebellum. "I Did With You" was written by the Capitol Nashville recording artists, along with Monty Powell, and is available at all digital retailers. The track is one of two Lady Antebellum cuts on the album, as "Falling For You" is also featured on the soundtrack, which will be released by EMI Nashville, in conjunction with Relativity Music.

The romantic drama, starring Michelle Monaghan and James Marsden, tells the story of Dawson (Marsden) and Amanda (Monaghan), two former high-school sweethearts who find themselves reunited after 20 years apart after they return to their small town for the funeral of an old friend. 

Walmart will make available for purchase a special 48-page ZinePak exclusive, including the soundtrack, photos, flower seeds (connected to the story's plot) and an unabridged audio book.
