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!
