I’m sure I’m not the only one who fell in love with This Is Us. I like seeing the siblings growing up and the dynamic of how they all relate to each other in the present. There has only been one season but so much has happened already. I know my whole family is ready for the second season to begin. I absolutely love the music on the show and how it fits so well – there is sad, happy, melancholy, and upbeat music. All these things can perfectly describe the show This Is Us.
Luckily, This Is Us: Music From the Series is being released Friday, September 15. Order your copy here and be ready for season 2, coming back September 26 at 9 p.m. on NBC.

One of my favorite songs on the album is “Willin'” by Mandy Moore, one of the stars of the show. I’ve always been a fan of Mandy’s, whether it was her acting or her music, so I’m glad that her song from the show was included on this album. If you don’t know the song, check it out on Youtube here. It’s very country/folksy – I think it would appeal to a lot of people.
Another favorite is “Blues Run the Game” by Jackson C. Frank. This is one of those melancholy songs I was talking about earlier, but I love it. It feels like a song you could listen to while driving around at night. There are actually some moments where Frank’s voice reminds me of Johnny Cash.This Is Us: Music From the Series out 9/15: order your copy now! #thisisusmusic Click To Tweet
