By now, most of you have heard about the upcoming release of a new movie called Country Strong, starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Tim McGraw. What you might not know is how involved Gwyneth Paltrow got in preparing for and playing the role of “Kelly Canter,” a just-out-of-rehab country singer trying to re-start her career. She actually learned how to play the guitar and is really the one singing the title track from the film. Of course it’s not bad to have the likes of Patty Griffin and Vince Gill providing harmony vocals on the track. Just a couple months ago we gave you a first listen to “Country Strong” and now the official music video is here. The video features Gwyneth performing with a full band in a warehouse setting blended with scenes from the film.
Watch it here:
The original motion picture soundtrack for Country Strong is set for release on October 26 on RCA Nashville. Gwyneth sings four songs on the soundtrack including a duet with Tim. Other artist features on the soundtrack include: Chris Young, Patty Loveless, Trace Adkins, Lee Ann Womack, Faith Hill, Sara Evans and Ronnie Dunn. You can see the movie in theatres beginning Dec. 22.
And, we just found out that Gwyneth and Vince will be performing “Country Strong” on the 44th Annual CMA Awards Show on Nov. 10 at 8/7c on ABC.
