COMING HOME Gwyneth Paltrow in Country Strong (Scott Garfield)

Country Strong

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: Various Artists

Like a distaff Crazy Heart, Country Strong stars Gwyneth Paltrow as a hard-living Nashville type staging a post-rehab comeback. On this soundtrack the actress actually sings four tunes herself, including a moody, Chris Martin-penned duet with costar Tim McGraw. She?s pretty convincing in the touchy-feely title track, though her ”Shake That Thing” should?ve been left unshook. Elsewhere you get solid new songs from the likes of Sara Evans, Ronnie Dunn, and Patty Loveless. B
