Nebraska is the new film by two-time Academy Award®-nominated director Alexander Payne (The Descendents, Sideways, Election) starring starring Bruce Dern, Will Forte, June Squibb, Stacy Keach and Bob Odenkirk. Featuring a guitar-driven score composed by Mark Orton (Tin Hat) that blends elements of acoustic chamber music, alt country, and bluegrass, the music of Nebraska is a character in and of itself. Accordion, dobro, violin, and an assortment of antique instruments bring color and life to the two heroes and the quirky characters they meet on their journey through the heartland. It's a classic American road trip with a soundtrack that truly breathes Americana. On November 19th, 2013 Milan Records will be releasing Music from the Motion Picture 'Nebraska' on both CD and digital download.

The score also includes great performances by the uber-talented musicians of Tin Hat, and provides the first time the three original members have reunited since 2005. Rob Burger - accordion/piano (who in the meantime has been working as a sideman with Lucinda Williams, Iron & Wine, Marianne Faithful, Bill Frisell, Calexico, & Norah Jones among others) has joined with present Tin Hat members Carla Kihlstedt – violin, and multi-instrumentalist Orton as part of the core band for the soundtrack. Additionally, Mickey Raphael (Willie Nelson's long-time right-hand man) plays harmonica on both the soundtrack album and the iTunes only bonus track "The Green Green Grass of Home."

Nebraska is a touching story of a cantankerous father (Bruce Dern) who thinks he’s struck it rich after receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail and wrangles his son (Will Forte) into taking a road trip to claim the fortune. Shot in black and white across four states, the film tells the stories of family life in the heartland of America. Directed by Alexander Payne, written by Bob Nelson and produced by Albert Berger & Ron Yerxa.
