AceShowbiz - Although "Country Strong" will only be released early next year, Screen Gems chooses to drop the first trailer this week. The drama is %cGwyneth Paltrow%'s latest pic which requires her singing skill. She previously appeared in 2000 musical film "Duets".
Paltrow stars as Kelly Canter, a country music superstar embarking on a comeback tour after a stint in rehab. %cGarrett Hedlund% plays Beau Williams, a young rising singer-songwriter who becomes involved with the fallen country singer. Meanwhile, Canter's husband, played by %cTim McGraw%, signs %cLeighton Meester%'s Chiles Stanton as her opening act instead of Williams who actually cares about Canter as a person.
"Country Strong" will be released widely in the U.S. on January 7, 2011. Before that, it will play in limited theaters on December 22.
