80 for Brady is about celebrating growing old gracefully as a woman so it was only fitting they tapped Eighties icons Dolly Parton, Cyndi Lauper, Gloria Estefan, Belinda Carlisle, and Debbie Harry, for the official soundtrack.

The Official Soundtrack

The women dressed in customized jerseys for their music video and delivered an almost four minute pop rendition of Gonna Be You. They got the empowering lyrics from one of the greatest songwriters of all time, Diane Warren.

The movie 80 for Brady is a tale of friendship between four senior women, Rita Moreno, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, and Sally Field. It's set in 2017 during the Super Bowl when Tom Brady played for the New England Patriots.

A Sports Comedy For Valentine's Day

The sports comedy shows them getting into a world of interesting trouble as they plan a road trip to meet their favorite NFL players. It also stars top players, Rob Gronkowski and Tom Brady.

Handpicking The Best Eighties Stars

Warren described the inspiration for her lyrics, saying it was about celebrating deep women friendships. The idea to get the best singers from the Eighties came from the movie's title, and Warren didn't think everyone she asked would agree to the plan.

Creating The Perfect 'Eighties' Anthem

Carlisle said getting the call from Warren changed her mind about retirement. Her son met the songwriter randomly at a Starbucks, and they exchanged contacts. The other ladies also had chance meetings with Warren; the rest is history.
