Grace Potter and the Nocturnals were excited to be chosen for the soundtrack for the upcoming Lone Ranger movie. Potter chose an old country song called "Devil's Train" and got together with her band to record it live on the radio, which they felt was the right setting since The Lone Ranger started as a radio show. Their version of the song is a little more folk-rock than the old country song, and it's got the forward movement of a train going for it.
