Details Release Date: Oct 25, 2010; Lead Performance: Various Artists; Genre: Country

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
