Country singer Jason Isbell released a cover version of Johnny Cash’s “All I Do Is Drive,” as reported by Pitchfork. The song is on the soundtrack of Netflix’s summer action-thriller movie The Ice Road. The film was released on June 25 and stars Liam Neeson. It’s about a man (Neeson) who rescues 26 trapped miners after an explosion.
The song feels a little bit more uptempo than the Johnny Cash original. There is something about Cash’s demeanor that was more felt through his voice. Nevertheless, the cover version is still pretty great and perhaps a new take is what the song needed.
The soundtrack was produced by Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx, who wanted an over theme and sense of the music for this film. Most of the songs are about driving, or cars, and some of the songs are covers. The album features L.A. Rats (Rob Zombie, Sixx, John 5, Tommy Clufetos), Tim McGraw, The Assassinzs featuring John Carter Cash (son of Johnny Cash) and Robin Zander, Carly Pearce and many more.
