Having tasted No. 1 single on Adult Contemporary Singles chart with remix of Smokey Robinson's "Cruisin' " and led "Country Strong" to get a Best Original Song nomination at Golden Globe Awards for her track "Coming Home", Gwyneth Paltrow says she couldn't see herself stop playing music. "I think there definitely will be singing in my future," she tells Yahoo!.

"I know that I won't stop singing and playing guitar," the "Iron Man" movie beauty continues. "It may just be to my kids in the house. I may make a record. I may do a musical. I'm not sure, but I'm just very grateful I'm in a place now where I've been given an opportunity to discover this whole new side to myself."

Talking about a possible record, Paltrow might make a duet with Cee-Lo. In another interview on "Good Morning America", she says of how things between her and the Gnarls Barkley member are, "We're sort of emailing each other, we don't know where that's gonna go. But I am such a big fan of Cee Lo, he is so gorgeous and talented and amazing. We'll see."

Paltrow learned how to play guitar from her rocker husband Chris Martin to prepare for her portrayal as a fallen country music singer alongside Tim McGraw in "Country Strong". She then showcased her skills with the instrument when singing live at the Country Music Association Awards in November.

She credited good pals Faith Hill and Beyonce Knowles for inspiring her. "I don't think I could have done the movie without Faith, let alone the CMA performance for sure," she gushed. "She got me through that...She was my inspiration in a lot of ways." As for what she learned from Beyonce, she stated, "I studied Beyonce a lot and her concerts for her kind of confidence.. and I'm lucky that I know some singers in real life."
