Is Gwyneth Paltrow “Country Strong”?
When you hear the name Gwyneth Paltrow, chances are you think of a few things, her amazing acting, her mother Blythe Danner, her husband, Chris Martin of Coldplay, her role as Pepper Potts on Iron Man 2, something along those lines, right? But you wouldn’t think “country singer” would top that list, would you?
Well, that old saying ‘you can’t judge a book by it’s cover’ rings true with Paltrow as the star not only signs on to play lead in country music film Country Strong alongside Time McGraw, but she has also opted to do all of her own singing. That’s right! As a matter of fact, the first single by Gwyneth will be hitting radio stations nationwide today.
Appropriately titled “Country Strong”, Paltrow’s voice will pleasantly surprise you in her music debut. She is able to pull off the entire song very convincingly and the buzz has already started with her fans.
Whether you love country music or not, you should definitely check out the song and see what all the hype is about. While we won’t say it’s a masterpiece, we will say that we are impressed with this hidden talent that the actress has kept under wraps for so long.
She did do a cover of the song “Cruisin'” with Huey Lewis back in 2000 for her role on Duets, so this little revelation may not shock everyone. No news yet of whether or not she plans to release more music or even if she will have more tracks on the Country Strong soundtrack.
The movie Country Strong features Paltrow as washed up country singer, Kelly Canter, who is trying desperately to make a comeback with the help of her husband/manager played by the very sexy country mougar, Tim McGraw.
The film is set to release on December 22 nationwide and you can look for the soundtrack in stores in October.
