Gwyneth Paltrow sings 'Country Strong' for new film
Gwyneth Paltrow has tossed singing back into her juggling routine of actress, mom, chef and blogger.
For the December release of her new country music drama "Country Strong," Paltrow plays a fallen star pulled from rehab by her husband and manager, portrayed by Tim McGraw, to stage a comeback. She sings the film's title track, which hit the Web on Monday.
"Paltrow’s single is aggressively inoffensive," Vanity Fair quips. We'd take it a step further and say it's downright pleasin' -- we've been a fan of the actress' voice since her easy-listening bonanza from "Duets."
"Country Strong," shot in Nashville, costars Garrett Hedlund and Leighton Meester. Paltrow blogged about her favorite eats and shopping spots in Music City.
Take a listen and tell us: Do you think the single is "Country" strong?
