It's Lightning McQueen Day (9/5 for 95), and Disney is revving up their upcoming series, Cars on the Road, including a new teaser from the third episode and the title sequence for the show. The whole score is now available on Apple Music.
The series' theme song is a catchy tune that invokes country songs of the past and sets the stage for the two anthropomorphic cars' adventures sung by country singer, songwriter, and producer Bobby Hamrick. From the names, you can get a sense of the stories that drive the series, from encountering monster trucks to exploring haunted areas and driving through the country.
Jake Monaco has contributed 37 songs to the soundtrack of Cars on the Road, including Pretzel and the Puppies, Re & Mi, and others. More recently, though, he acted as composer for the Bryan Cranston, Annette Bening starrer Jerry, and Marge Go Large.
As they depart Radiator Springs for a road trip together, Lightning pays his respects and surprises many new faces, some unfamiliar to the Cars universe. Lloyd Sherr is also reprising his roles from the franchise.
Cars on the Road, which was originally announced back in December 2020, is directed by Marc Sondheimer, who also directs the film. Steve Purcell (Episodes 1, 2, 8), Bobby Podesta (Episodes 5, 6, 9), and Brian Fee (Episodes 3, 4, and 7) will direct all nine episodes on Disney+ Day, September 8.
