Country music’s most buzzed-about new group, The Highwomen, may have just announced their debut single and album, but they’ve already caught the attention of major Hollywood filmmakers.

The group lends vocals to the soundtrack of the new film, The Kitchen, starring Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish and Elisabeth Moss. Their stunning cover of Fleetwood Mac’s “The Chain” is featured in the trailer for the new flick, which premieres in theaters across the country on August 9.

Check out the trailer above to hear a clip of The Highwomen singing “The Chain.”

The Highwomen is comprised of Brandi Carlile, Maren Morris, Amanda Shires and Natalie Hemby. The group formed earlier this year, made some magic in the studio with award-winning producer Dave Cobb and released their debut single, “Redesigning Women,” on Friday (July 19).

The group’s band name was partially inspired by The Highwaymen, a country supergroup formed in 1985 that was comprised of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings and Kris Kristofferson.

“Anyone can be a Highwoman,” Carlile previously shared. “It’s about banding together, abandoning as much ego as humanly possible, holding one another up and amplifying other women every chance we get. Shoulder to shoulder. One push, one love.”

The Highwomen’s debut album is slated for a September 6 release. The self-titled release is available for pre-order now.
