Hannah Montana 3 is the third soundtrack album for the Disney Channel Original Series Hannah Montana. It was released to stores and digital retailers on July 7, 2009, in the United States under Walt Disney Records. The album was originally set for release on July 14, 2009, but was pushed forward a week for unknown reasons. Hannah Montana 3 is the fourth soundtrack (excluding the live album) in participation of Miley Cyrus' alter ego, Hannah Montana and ninth under the franchise and is the soundtrack for the third season of Hannah Montana. The album is the follow-up to the 2007, triple-platinum selling record, Hannah Montana 2.
The album received mostly positive reviews by About.com and Entertainment Weekly for its fun party-dance tracks and ability to go deeper with "searching ballads", comparing the music and Cyrus's vocal abilities to Shania Twain, Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson and more. It was not favored by Allmusic saying it was too "cookie cutter", even though "it seems to give fans exactly what they want".
The Montana–Montana State football rivalry is an annual college football rivalry game between the University of Montana Grizzlies and the Montana State University Bobcats. Also known as Cat-Griz, and the Brawl of the Wild, the game's winner receives the Great Divide Trophy.
The rivalry began in 1897, making it the 31st oldest in NCAA Division I and the 11th oldest west of the Mississippi River, as well as the 4th-oldest Football Championship Subdivision rivalry and the oldest FCS rivalry west of the Mississippi. Montana leads the series 69-37-5, but that margin is considerably smaller since Montana State joined the NCAA in 1957 at 29-26. The game, especially of late, has major implications on the Big Sky Conference championship and its automatic bid to the Division I FCS tournament.
Pop music (a term that originally derives from an abbreviation of "popular") is a genre of popular music which originated in its modern form in the 1950s, deriving from rock and roll. The terms popular music and pop music are often used interchangeably, even though the former is a description of music which is popular (and can include any style).
As a genre, pop music is very eclectic, often borrowing elements from other styles including urban, dance, rock, Latin and country; nonetheless, there are core elements which define pop. Such include generally short-to-medium length songs, written in a basic format (often the verse-chorus structure), as well as the common employment of repeated choruses, melodic tunes, and catchy hooks.

The term "United States", when used in the geographical sense, means the continental United States, Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Virgin Islands of the United States. The country shares land borders with Canada and Mexico and maritime (water) borders with Russia, Cuba, and the Bahamas in addition to Canada and Mexico.
