Gwyneth Paltrow and Taylor Swift Added to CMA Awards Performers Line-Up


While Paltrow is confirmed to make a duet on 'Country Strong' soundtrack with Vince Gill, Swift is most likely to perform solo on one of her 'Speak Now' songs.

Actress Gwyneth Paltrow has just been tapped to make a live performance for the first time ever at this year's Country Music Association Awards. Along with Vince Gill, the movie beauty will perform the soundtrack of "Country Strong", a flick where she plays a fallen country music singer.

Although music is not her main career and her performance at the CMA perhaps is a promotional effort for the film, Paltrow wants to go all out and has got herself ready for the show. "She worked very hard on the music," movie director Shana Feste told People. "She worked with Byron Gallimore, who was Tim McGraw and Faith Hill's producer ... And she had guitar lessons and vocal lessons and she took it very, very seriously."

The other new addition to the performers line-up is Taylor Swift who happens to have a new album "Speak Now" to come out next week on October 25. Thus, the 20-year-old singer will possibly sing one of her new singles in a live telecast of the 44th annual CMA Awards set for November 10 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

The prize-giving event will be hosted by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley, marking the third time they take the duty. Beside hosting, they will also perform along with Reba McEntire, Rascal Flatts, George Strait, Sugarland, Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley, Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Zac Brown Band and Alan Jackson.
