Gwyneth Paltrow is already an Academy Award-winning actress and one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood, but it appears she wants to add "country music singer" to her resume.
Paltrow is the voice behind "Country Strong," a new single released Monday to country music radio stations nationwide. The song is the title track to the upcoming film of the same name, which stars Paltrow as a fallen country singer looking to make a comeback with the help of a young songwriter.
The "Country Strong" soundtrack will be released October 26, while the movie premieres in theaters December 22.
"Country Strong" isn't Paltrow's first foray into music. The actress teamed up with Huey Lewis to perform a cover of the Smokey Robinson classic "Cruisin'" for the 2000 film "Duets," according to TheBoot.com, where you can also check out Paltrow's vocals.
