Actress Gwyneth Paltrow plays Kelly Canter, a country singer looking to revamp her career, in the aptly titled Country Strong. Today, the video for the movie’s title track hit the Internet. Featuring Paltrow, the clip is mostly shot in an abandoned warehouse with the actress’ band, while pieces from the movie are sprinkled in the gaps. Paltrow sounds good as a country singer, even if her voice isn’t strong enough to power through the entire track – on the chorus, a male vocalist backs her for some added strength. Still, this shows that if the whole acting thing ever goes South, she’s got a shot a music stardom. (If Duets didn’t prove that already.)
Give the video a look after the jump.
