Premiering May 25th at 9 p.m. ET/PT, History’s Texas Rising features a bounty of music behind 10 hours of fighting for Texan independence. Esteemed composers Bruce Broughton and John Debney provide “stunning and evocative” instrumentals, while the vocal talents of José Feliciano and actors/singers Kris Kristofferson and George Strait duly impart the authenticity and raw emotions that ride shotgun with the violent struggle.
The movie portrays the stories of Sam Houston (Bill Paxton), Santa Anna (Olivier Martinez) and the original “Yellow Rose of Texas” Emily West (Cynthia Addai-Robinson) in the fight for Texas’ independence from Mexico. A soundtrack album has been released by Universal Music Group Nashville and is available for purchase at Amazon in MP3 format.
Texas Rising airs on the History Channel at 9pm, May 25, May 26, June 1, June 8 and June 15.
