Gwyneth Paltrow says she's "pleasantly astonished" that "Country Strong", the song featured in her upcoming film of the same name has been released as a single.

She explains:

“No! 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?’”

Vince Gill and Patty Griffin are also featured as guest vocals in the song. Gwyneth continues:

“They were added in later. I did my vocal, and then Byron Gallimore, the producer, who’s unbelievable, he was like,'You know, I just think Vince would sing so well on this.’ I was like, There’s no way. And he fucking got Vince Gill to sing on the track! It’s crazy. He has this best voice ever, in the history of any genre. I just die for that man’s voice.

"And Patty Griffin, I had seen her play in New York with John Prine years ago, and I had gotten really into her record Flaming Red. It’s amazing. I’m so humbled.”

LOLs — for some reason we can't picture prim and proper Gwynnie dropping the F-bomb!

    Gwyneth is not prim and proper, she's stuck up - big difference. She's also not educated or smart, she's an elitist snob. She's dropping the F-bomb on purpose, because she's desperately trying to "down" herself to the people. Idiot. And, all the "he's like, I'm like, they were like .." Idiot, idiot, idiot.

    I'm not a GP fan but she looks pretty in this photo.

    She is an insult to country music and America, too, by the way, with her snobby, elitist comments she's always making. Vince and Patty were nice to prop up her song.

    Gwyneth Paltrow is not worthy enough to sing with Patty Griffin. (Note my screen name)What a disgrace. It's already a disgrace that Patty Griffin has never won a grammy so maybe the only good that will come of this is more people will be exposed to her music.

    Why hasn't anyone commented on the fact that Gwyneth said, "And he fucking got Vince Gill to sing on the track! It’s crazy. He has this best voice ever, in the history of any genre. I just die for that man’s voice."
    What about her husband, Chris Martin? I'm sure he, as a singer, will be really pleased to hear that.

    I hardly think she has been "humbled" by this.



  13. 13

    At least she isn't discussing her bodily functions and frail health, as she usually is.



  14. 14

    This is one Hollywood lady that is losing her looks.

    She should do a remake of "Coal Miners Daughter". Without makeup she could pass for the coal miner's grandmother.

    Oh barf. Does anything not go just perfectly for Ms Perfect. Her pretentious charm is so annoying. How is she still considered an A-lister? In the last 10 years what great movie has she been in?

    I listened to this song and it is actually VERY good. I'm impressed!
