Today In Disney History ~ June 6th

Cars is the soundtrack album for the 2006 film of the same name. It was released through Walt Disney Records on June 6, 2006. Nine songs from the soundtrack are from popular and contemporary artists. The styles of these songs vary between pop, blues, country and rock. The remaining eleven pieces are orchestral scores composed and conducted by Randy Newman.
At the 49th Grammy Awards the soundtrack was nominated for the Best Compilation Soundtrack Album, while the John Mayer version of “Route 66” was also nominated for Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance and “Our Town” won the award for Best Song Written for a Motion Picture, Television or Other Visual Media. The track was also nominated for Best Original Song at the 79th Academy Awards.
On November 25, 2006, the soundtrack’s position on the Billboard 200 shot up from #126 to #47, with a 209% sales increase of 25,000 units. This was most likely due to the holiday season and the fact that Cars was released on DVD. This was the first Pixar soundtrack to ever achieve Gold Certification in the United States. It is now Platinum in the U.S.
