Gwyneth Paltrow Discovers Country Music

Courtesy of Kevin Richards, WGNA

Gwyneth Paltrow admits that Country Music is “a new love for her”, thanks to her role in “Country Strong!”  Gwyenth explains why she was a little late discovering Country Music in the clip below, recorded during our visit at the CMA Awards. 

This weekend the new movie “Country Strong” opens in theaters nationwide.  Gwyneth Paltrow plays a character and situation we’ve often seen in this genre; a fallen, emotionally unstable country singer who once was a superstar.  In the flick, a young rising star teams up with this “has-been” and her manager/husband, played by Tim McGraw, to try and resurrect her musical career.

In October, we had the chance to attend a press conference with Gwyneth Paltrow at the CMA awards, and she answered some interesting questions for the room of Country Radio Personalities.  The press conference was briefly interrupted by her co-star, Tim McGraw.  Tim jumped out from behind the curtain to give Gwyneth a kiss.  Although his visit only lasted a few seconds, the entire room was surprised, including Gwyneth.  I quickly grabbed my phone and got a quick shot of this spontaneous moment.

In this audio clip, Gwyneth answers some of our questions about being a Country Music fan, the possibility of pursuing a music career, and how she tackles being a superstar mom!
