We're just a few weeks away from the long-anticipated return of the fantastic FX series Justified, which will kick off its fourth season on January 8. To coincide with the long-awaited return of everyone's favorite lawman, Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant), January 8 will also bring us the release of the official Justified soundtrack.
The album, which is available as a pre-order from iTunes for $9.99, features the following tracklisting:
1. Long Hard Times to Come (feat T.O.N.E.-z) - Gangstagrass
2. Harlan County Line - Dave Alvin
3. Stand by Your Man - Beverley Staunton
4. Devil at the Wheel - Bill Champlin and Steve Porcaro
5. Dream My Darling - Lynda Kay
6. Justified - Cumberland River Band
7. Southfield Blues - Robert J. Walsh
8. We Lost It - Jesse Dayton & Brennen Leigh
9. Jack and Coke - Lynda Kay
10. Beautiful City 'Cross the River - Dave Alvin
11. In Trouble - Ryan Kickland
12. Hobo Man - The Homemade Jamz Blues Band
13. Gunglinging Rambler (feat. R-SON) - Gangstagrass
Conspicuously absent is Brad Paisley's cover of "You Will Never Leave Harlan Alive," the ditty which closed out the first two seasons.
It's all very bluegrass-oriented here, obviously, and while some of it -- "Justified," for instance -- is rather pleasant, the strains of country smothering "We Lost It" will probably be too much for all but devout country lovers.
This soundtrack -- and Justified season 4 -- hits January 8.
