In 2002, Hiatt was tapped to write and sing original songs for Disney's The Country Bears, a cornball live-action kiddie film about a lovable group of country-singing bears who plan a reunion show. Hiatt also sings four of his seven compositions which appear on the movie's soundtrack CD.
The soundtrack is a moderately enjoyable collection of family-friendly tunes. Hiatt's contributions are done in his usual genre-blending style. They may be a bit less serious than the songs he records for his proper albums, but they do not fall below his usual standards. Hiatt's compositions also come in the forms of a gentle duet between Bonnie Raitt and Don Henley (neither of whom are strangers to singing Hiatt's songs); a modern r&b number from Krystal Harris; and a semi-slick country-pop tune from Jennifer Paige.
Besides Hiatt's songs, the CD also includes a rousing rockabilly rave-up from Brian Setzer, with character actor Stephen Root providing guest vocals; a timeless Byrds classic; Elton John's aged ballad "Friends" (which was originally the title song for a really bad movie from 1971); a banjo solo from Bela Fleck; and a pair of laid-back instrumentals from veteran film score composer Christopher Young.
