Country Strong Movie Trailer Starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Tim McGraw 2010-09-10 08:30:00

Movie Preview: Gwyneth Sings Her Heart Out in Country Strong

I hope you enjoyed that little musical teaser I shared with you a couple months ago of Gwyneth Paltrow singing "Country Strong," because now we get a peek at the movie of the same name. Seriously, the whole plot of country-based drama Country Strong seems to revolve completely around this song. Paltrow takes on the role of Kelly Canter, a guitar-strumming superstar who is better known for her trip to rehab rather than her country singing.

Naturally, she finds obstacles on her way back to the top, including the fledgling performer who seems hungry to take her place (Leighton Meester). Her husband is played by actual country star Tim McGraw while cute up-and-comer Garrett Hedlund appears as a talented fellow singer-songwriter who may or may not interfere in Canter's marriage. I have faith in Paltrow as a versatile actress, but some parts of this trailer feel like she's in a Saturday Night Live skit about country singers. And I won't say I'm not still looking forward to it, but I also can't ignore that it comes with a big serving of cheese. Watch the preview and get the twangy song stuck in your head when you

The trailer actually makes me want to see this, as well as the fact that I love country music and I love all the supporting actors. Tim McGraw is just so magnetic; he makes everything he's in better and I, of course, love Leighton Meester. we'll see though...

I'm a sucker for music movies (and yes, I even loved her in Duets), and i got chills even through the cheesiness of this trailer. i'll probably drag my husband to see it with me :)

I've read too much about her hoity-toityness to believe she can pull off being a country singer.

I would totally have watched this if Sawyer from Lost was in the lead. This movie does not have enough handsome men for me!
