Hoedown Throwdown

Album: Hannah Montana: The Movie (2009)
Charted: 18 18
  • This is the big dance number from Hannah Montana: The Movie. The song originated when the president of music and soundtracks for Walt Disney Studios, Mitchell Leib, approached songwriters to pen a song that could be "Miley's 'Macarena' meets 'Achy Breaky Heart.'" Songwriting duo Nikki Hassman (formerly of the Contemporary Christian group Avalon) and her husband Adam Anders in conjunction with choreographer Jamal Sims and movie director Peter Chelsom rose to the challenge to create the song and its accompanying dance sequence. Leib commented to Billboard magazine: "There's humor in it, and it's very, very true to the spirit of the movie, and that's why I think it's striking a nerve."
  • Miley told Billboard this is the scene that she loves the most in the Hannah Montana movie.
