Gwyneth Paltrow: 'Country Strong' Music Video Premiere!

Gwyneth Paltrow straps on a guitar and shows off her musical side in the video for “Country Strong” from the upcoming drama of the same name.

The flick, in theaters December 22, follows alcoholic singer Kelly Canter (Paltrow) as she is taken out of rehab by her manager husband (Tim McGraw) and kicks off a career resurrection tour.

Gwyn, 38, has also been busy filming her guest spot on Glee.

Creator Ryan Murphy shared yesterday (October 13) at a Paley Center chat that she just shot a scene dressed as Mary Todd Lincoln, in which she screams at a teapot! Gwyn plays a substitute teacher who teaches the class about bipolar rants.

Ryan also revealed Gwyneth will be filming a big musical number from Chicago!

FYI: Gwyn is wearing a Monroe gray tank, Isabel Marant leather pants, and Stella McCartney stilettos. The other outfit is a silk sleeveless shirt and skirt by Vanessa Bruno. All jewels by Isabel Marant and JewelMint!

    Jared i can’t see the clips! is it because i’m not from US so i can’t see it?

  • hello

    @harry: You’re not missing anything. It’s just her lip synching.

  • i heart that

    G.P. doesn’t have a bad voice but huge fail on the country singer/rock star thing.

  • swedish fish

    I know they all do the lipsynching but it’s really obvious here.

  • hard

    This woman is out of her mind lately. Something`s going on in her head.

  • helen

    the voice just doesn’t match her. she looks like such a stuck up new york city girl and the country thing is just weird for her

  • Dan

    Obviously it was previously recorded, mentioning anything about it is pointless. As for the song, I find it interesting that she’s willing to sing for a movie, her voice is great and it shows her dedication. Sorry to disappoint Justin Bieber fans, there are other musicians.

  • mickey

    ugly chick

  • Seriously?

    That’s a woman?

  • Movie Watcher

    She probably thinks she’ll score another Oscar nom — it has been a really long time since the first one — by doing a poor man’s Crazy Heart but this plays more like a cheesy Lifetime movie.

  • Movie Watcher

    Keep your eye on Garrett Hedlund though. He’s the one to watch in this film.

  • always

    @Dan: It’s not pointless at all and I don’t see any correlation to people being Justin Bieber fans for pointing it out. That’s just sour grapes on your part. It’s glaringly obvious which is why it’s worth mentioning. Not sure why they couldn’t fix that.

  • who?

    Who?

  • coldplaying

    She can’t sing live. That’s why it was pre-recorded AND auto-tuned to death.

  • pretty in pink

    That was awkward.

  • AbbyinMd

    @Movie Watcher: Caught a sneak preview of this the other night. It’s not bad. Agree, he rocks. Gwyneth was o.k. If anyone is nominated for this it will probably be Garrett.

  • Broadway Babe

    Her voice is pretty good but she seems to be doing a rendition of how she thinks a country western singer should appear and it’s grossly off base. I’m wary of what she’ll come up with for Glee now.

  • kizbit

    That was weird. Something is odd about it. Maybe it’s all that bouncing and total lack of rhythm, mixed with a song that covers a range of about 5 notes. I’m assuming she’ll be using some sort of southern accent in this movie. UGH!

  • oasis

    gawky bird.

  • Aries

    I’ve always wondered why Gwyneth never cut an album. She’s as good as some of the top singers. This explains why. She sounds fine on the track but she has no stage presence. Very awkward indeed.

  • linx

    G.P. is a terrible dancer.

  • Yikes

    I like Gwyneth, but I don’t like this role. Wouldn’t it be better suited for Reese?

  • YU

    YUCK………

  • YU

    CAN’T BELIEVE THIS PLAIN JANE IS BLYTHE DANNER’S DAUGTHER. SHE SHOULD GET HER BEAUTIFUL MOM TO GIVE HER A MAKEOVER.

  • truly

    this is the same as that cooking video. gwyneth is a decent actress, but she has no personal charisma. she’s good at playing fictional characters but not very charismatic as herself and she does not have the intensity that singers need to hold an audience’s attention.

  • Crystal

    Haters. Gwyneth sounds and looks amazing in this video. And the movie has been garnering Oscar buzz. Looks like she’s doing something right. She’s fab.

  • mailey

    i really like gwyneth but the song is just ok. not horrid. but not great. just blah.

  • tar

    I can’t see the video; but I saw the trailer and she is sooo good !, plus she sings well at least compared to others that even have albums and so.
    I’ve always thought she’ an amazing actress abd underrated
    f*ck you haters

  • haha

    She is boring… and this doesn´t match her for sure.
    Maybe she will get Oscar nomination, but I am sure for 90%, that she won´t win Oscar… Reese Witherspoon was 100 times better even in trailer.
    People don´t like Gwyneht, because she has got everything from childhood… She doesn´t know, what means hard work… Sometimes she looks like she think, that she is better…
    Madonna and Stella Mccarthney like best friends.
    Spielberg like Godfather.
    But lets be honest her marriage isn´t perfect. I thought that Cox and Arquette or Winslet and Mendes will never break up… but they did.. I think Gwyneth and Chris will break up in 5 years… when children will be older.

    Teaches the student about bipolar rants?? Great, yet another show presenting non-factual information about bipolar disorder. I have bipolar disorder and I can guarantee you I have never yelled at a teapot. WTF?!

  • juniper

    I think G.P. will be good in this, I just wish they styled her a little less NY chic with the skinny jeans and edgy tops and a bit more down home.

  • Susie

    Is this film a Crazy Heart reboot? Been there, done that. What happened to creativity and originality? So, does she believe that she will win an Oscar like Jeff Bridges as well?

  • mandy

    Can’t wait to see garret and leighton! looks like their character is hooking up in this movie.. they look hoT!!!!

  • http://www.twitter.com/Ann_Howard Ann_Howard

    Kind of liked it. Only reason I would see this is for Gwyneth.

  • mel

    I cant wait for this movie to come out! Leighton and Garret are the only reason why im gonna watch this movie. The movie is generating Oscar Buzz so Im hoping this movie will give Garrett and Leighton the recognition they deserve. Leighton is already get an award at the 14th Annual Awards Ceremony for her role in this movie.

  • Marissa

    So glad Garrett and Leighton’s characters hook up. They need to get together irl.

  • Heads/Tails

    I am totally 50/50 about Paltrow and I think she has a fantastic voice. There was a Karaoke tape leaked of her singing in a bar and she was amazing. I think you have to separate your feelings about her as a person and her as a talent. I don’t care, for the most part, for that kind of music—but I thought this was catchy and she had a strong voice. As for lip-synching–IT’S A MUSIC-VIDEO. EVERYONE…even bloody Beyonce or your favorite singer doesn’t sing live whilst making a video—AND….this is a movie…so same a a music video….of course she lip-synchs….and just as musical artists record in the studio and have their voices perfectly nailed for a record (repeating track after track to nab it) so did Paltrow….and Witherspoon admitted she did the same. I really think it takes courage to stand up and sing when you’re not known as a singer….and she does darned well.

  • justme

    I am not a Gwennie Fan as she has always put her foot in her mouth by saying how she loves London England and how much better everything is there including the people. Yes she apologises later but the words were already said and you know it’s her agent who is telling her she is losing fans if she doesn’t try to say something wonderful about the rest of her world.=USA.
    She finally spoke out about scre.wing around with the Wein.stein bros=couch fcuk to get her into some good movies. She didn’t add that when she said she loved Brad Pitt , was engaged to him and it took her 5 yrs to get over him it’s b/c he didn’t tell the whole world what a sl.ut she was when he caught her red handed. . Some of this info is coming out in a mag with Kate Hudson as thecover pic.
    Kind of weird for GP to be telling such personal info but letting KH take the cover. Most likely a small write up b/c GP knows and has seen it written among the celebrity bds about her couch >her words=bl.owj.obs.
    Gwennie darlin most of us knew about your indiscretions so hiding behind Katie Hudson’s pic won’t change anything.
    How embarassing that your husband won’t be seen with you EVER.
    Not only does Gwenith still talk about Brad Pitt but her husband says when you marry somebody that once dated Brad Pitt you have to try to look good. I wonder if he cared how great he looked when he got caught running around on GP? PLURAL. A marriage of convience that’s all it is. Both of them should drop the Brad Pitt name dropping. My PO.. that’s so stupid.
    She is about as good a singer as alot of these actors who do one album and quit.. She admits she is having a difficult time getting good roles and offers for movies. ITA with others who have said Gwenith thinks her sh.it don’t stink. She gives off that impression b/c she was born with a silver spoon in her mouth so no she does not fit in with common folk. You often hear of great or okay actresses and when ppl say they are so nice, so down to earth that’s a satisfying good opinion from others. You will never hear ppl say GP is a down to earth person. Just saying things like that are what makes one become a Fan of the actor . IN HW there are lots of kids young and old from HW stars who don’t act better then the rest of us. Yes they are the down to earth actors or up and coming actors. I think she is an only child =spoiled brat and it’s too late now .
    A couple of mos ago Gwenith was caught with her hubby walking on a pier so was kind of difficult to not be seen together. How sad to have him walk to the end like he didn’t know her with his back turned and if you ever wanted to see anyone who looked like she was ready to spit nails her face was mean looking/angry WHOAA!
    . She mentioned just recently how miserable she must look in pics in a recent mag(NOT TABS) and blamed it on the paps waking her children which was a lie b/c the times the paps have caught them together they didn’t have their kids. with them. Has anybody ever seen the pic of them in a wedding car line up everyone was driving slow to Nicole K ‘s wedding? LOL Hilarious how her husbands body was twisted into the craziest position like a contorshionist so that his head was down on the floor in the backseat of the car.. She even looked at him like you effen weirdo. How insecure is the guy? To use Brad Pitt as an excuse for these ridiculous nonpicture exposes.
    If i hear good about this movie it won’t stop us from watching it. (there is a few of us married couples and friends who always do going to the movies together. So i don’t hate her, nahh i wouldn’t waste my energy on hating any actress but this is a place for opinions and that’s what i am giving. . ps…. I won’t be buying her music.

  • Hawkeye

    I cut my teeth on country music and I know a good song and a good voice when I hear it. If this is released as a single it will do well. Great job Gwyneth!!

  • Jake

    Singing is good, not the strongest ballad if it’s the films centerpiece.

  • Infinite

    @Heads/Tails: I think you’ve missed the point. Most people commenting seem to understand it’s a music video and she’s going to lip sync. What’s being noticed is how evident the lip syncing is — that’s not something you see every day in music videos. The video is not very good and that’s probably why she’s shied away from releasing a cd and going on tour. She’s not a natural musical performer. Lots of celebrities have decent voices but it takes immense talent to be a compelling stage presence and she just doesn’t have that magic.

  • bebe

    I think her voice is good for a non professional singer but she has no charisma to play live on stage, it looks kinda awkward. I beleive Cate Blanchett would be way better. Look at her performing even as a ballerina in Benjamin Button is mesmerizing.

  • ellie’

    Love Gwen ..beautiful voice and it is hers…great actress shes gorgeous .. and a beautiful family…

  • Heads/Tails

    @Infinite: Not at all…..I haven’t missed the point…….I don’t see anything different about her timing with the vocals…….regardless…..she is FANTASTIC for a non-pro singer–in fact, she’s just a really good singer, period.

  • Xolodnyj

    Horribly generic lyrics and an obvious ploy in trying to get an oscar nod because she is singing, but whoever wrote those lyrics should be smacked. From listening to this song and seeing the video I will not only pass on this movie in the theaters, but on DVD and change the channel if it ever shows up on TV. She can “sing”, but this is garbage.

    my favorite music videos are those of Lady Gaga, they are quite weird but very cool `,:
