Backed by Vince Gill and Patty Griffin, Gwyneth Paltrow belts out the title track of 'Country Strong' soundtrack.
Gwyneth Paltrow is going country in "Country Strong" which has hit the web for stream. Featuring background vocal by Vince Gill and Patty Griffin, the track is recorded for her upcoming big screen project of the same name which also stars country music crooner Tim McGraw and pop songstress Leighton Meester.
"I won't stay down long / Because I'm country strong," the Pepper Potts of "Iron Man" sings. Playing a country music singer named Kelly Canter, she reportedly reached out to her musician husband Chris Martin of Coldplay to teach her how to play guitar.
"Country Strong" will be released in theaters across U.S. on December 22. In this movie, Garrett Hedlund plays a young rising singer-songwriter who becomes involved with a fallen country singer portrayed by Paltrow. They embark on a career resurrection tour with her husband-manager (McGraw) and a beauty queen-turned-singer (Meester). Romantic entanglements and old demons threaten to derail them all.
