AllMusic Review by James Christopher Monger

Actor, animator, producer, writer, musician, and Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane tapped frequent collaborator/composer/Disney film veteran Joel McNeely to provide the score for his second big-screen outing, the comedy Western A Million Ways to Die in the West. McNeely bases his playful and robust score on classic silver screen-era Westerns, offering up a pastiche that's both reverent and self-aware, while the theme song, which is performed by Alan Jackson, and "If You've Only Got a Mustache," the latter of which is performed by Grammy-nominated American tenor Amick Byram, are as goofy as they are brimming with familiar Western motifs.
