The album 8 Seconds is the soundtrack to the movie 8 Seconds. It was released in 1994 by MCA Records. The album peaked at no. 3 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. Four cuts from the album made the Hot Country Songs charts: McBride & the Ride's "No More Cryin'" at no. 26,[2] David Lee Murphy's "Just Once" at no. 36, Reba McEntire's "If I Had Only Known" at no. 72, and Brooks & Dunn's "Ride 'em High, Ride 'em Low" at no. 73.[3] Of these songs, "If I Had Only Known" previously appeared on McEntire's 1991 album For My Broken Heart,[4] while "Just Once" later appeared on Murphy's debut album Out with a Bang.[5] "Burnin' Up the Road", performed here by John Anderson, was previously the title track to McBride & the Ride's 1991 debut album.

Scott Neal Wilson of Country Weekly gave the soundtrack a positive review, saying that its sound would "not only appeal to country fans[…]but also to a pop-rock audience pulled in by the movie's inspirational storyline."[1]
