Gwyneth Paltrow set to release country single

Friday August 6, 2010

Film star Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed that she will release a music single from her upcoming movie Country Strong.

This is not the first film in which the 37-year-old actress has exhibited her vocal talents - she also sung in 2006's Infamous and 2000 movie Duets.

Multi-talented Gwyneth will star alongside Gossip Girl actress Leighton Meester and country singer Tim McGraw in her new film.

Revealing the news, she told Entertainment Weekly: "I was just singing songs for the movie.

"I think the original plan was they wanted the bona fide crew to re-sing our songs, and then when Sony Music Nashville chair Joe Galante heard it, he was like, 'No, I want to release this as the single.' I was like, 'Excuse me please? What? What is going on?'"

Gwyneth also took guitar lessons from Coldplay frontman husband Chris Martin to prepare for her role.
