Scott Bomar, music supervisor for the Academy Award–winning Hustle and Flow, returned to Ardent Studios in Memphis, Tenn. to mix the song "Kick It" with engineer John Hampton. The song is included in the soundtrack for the animated feature film Barnyard, featuring the voices of Kevin James, Danny Glover, Sam Elliot, Wanda Sykes and Courteney Cox Arquette.

"Kick It" was produced by Scott Bomar and performed by his band, The Bo-Keys. Skip Pitts, renowned for his wah-wah guitar on the theme from Shaft, played guitar and sang lead on the new Barnyard song.

From director Steve Oedekerk and Nickelodeon Movies, two of the co-creators of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, and filmed entirely in CGI, Barnyard is a lighthearted tale centering around Otis (voiced by Kevin James), a carefree party cow who enjoys singing, dancing and playing tricks on humans. Unlike his father, Ben (voiced by Sam Elliott), the respected patriarch of the farm, and Miles, the wise old mule (voiced by Danny Glover), Otis is unconcerned about keeping the animals' humanlike talents a secret. But when suddenly put in a position of responsibility, the cow finds the courage to be a leader.

The movie is scheduled for theatrical release on August 4.
