‘Trouble With the Curve’ Trailer – What’s the Song?
The trailer for the new baseball movie ‘Trouble With the Curve’ starring Clint Eastwood, Amy Adams, John Goodman and Justin Timberlake features a joyous, up-tempo rock song from an ‘American Idol‘ contestant. Do you recognize the song?
The track is ‘Home,’ the coronation song of Season 11 ‘Idol’ winner Phillip Phillips. The song brings an uplifting feeling to the trailer for the movie, which features Eastwood as an aging baseball scout losing his eyesight and struggling with his less-than-perfect relationship with his daughter, whom Timberlake tries to date.
As the trailer reaches its emotional peak, when Eastwood’s character has an argument with his daughter, viewers hear Phillips singing, “You know you’re not alone.” The trailer ends on a lighter moment with Timberlake declaring Dr. Phil “quality television” as Phillips’ song fades out.
‘Home’ was one of the most successful coronation songs ever, reaching No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100, and it has received even more exposure lately with the release of the official music video and some high-profile airtime during NBC’s coverage of the Olympics. The current ‘Idol’ champ is just a few months into his reign, so it may still be several months before we get to hear a full-length album from Phillips.
‘Trouble With the Curve’ is expected to hit theaters in September.
