She may sing about being "Country Strong," but Gwyneth Paltrow is getting weak in the knees at the thought of performing at the Country Music Association Awards.
The Oscar-winning actress, who is set to croon the theme song from her upcoming film of the same name, confesses that she's more than a little bit nervous about making her live singing debut at the November 10 awards event.
"If I don't faint, if I can just get through it, it'll be OK," she said in a radio interview, according to CMT.com. "Most people start in a bar, then a bigger bar, then maybe a theater. You're not supposed to just start at the CMAs. It's a little scary."
“Country Strong” stars 38-year-old Paltrow as Kelly Canter, a recently rehabbed country singer who attempts to make a comeback.
If the training the actress went through to prep for the part is any indication, she should pull off a top-notch performance when she takes the CMA stage.
"I had to learn how to play guitar, and I took singing lessons," Paltrow told MTV in May. "It was a real challenge, but I felt like I pretty much pulled it off."
Thanks for providing such information. niouwhgfd
She is bland and although she can act – she appears to have no grasp on how to select a role that will intrigue an audience into going to see her films.

Gwyneth Paltrow has to be the most boring actress alive. Just...boring as all hell. I have no idea how she got that Oscar.
Actually, she's good in the Iron Man movies and I liked her in Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow and Shallow Hal. I just never liked Shakespeare in Love. So I take my comment back. There's worse out there.
I didn't even remember her being in Se7en.
Yeah yeah leave her alone

Country music it's so random she's an Oscar winning actress who lives in England and is married to a British guy

I hope she can sing better then her friend madonna , cause that old hag SUCKS!
Madonna is an old has-been. She seriously needs to retire before it becomes even more embarrassing.

She makes me sick. Her movies suck.
YOU GUYZ JUST WAIT THIS MOVIE IS GONNA BE A LIFETIME MOVIE CLASSIC JUST LIKE MOMMY CAN I SLEEP WITH DANGER
This woman is so annoying. She never misses a chance to say...ohh me, wonderful me....Most people start at a little bar, then bigger bar, you're not supposed to start at the CMA's...but look I AM STARTING AT THE CMA'S ohhh WONDERFUL ME. She is so annoying. Gross me out. How does Chris Martin stand her. She probably goes on and on about how privileged she is and trys to put him down. Maybe he goes in for that kind of thing. It amazes me that she hangs out with Beyonce and JayZ. I am surprised they can't see through her.
Yeah, right, Italia. You who have never met her – and never will -know her SO much better than all her many friends, because, really, everything you read and see via gossip columns and magazines and the paparazzo are SO accurate and real, and celebrities are exactly how the public perceives them to be.
Are you kidding? Beyonce left her bandmates in the dust and didn't even blink twice. So much for 'sisterhood'. Jay-Z just talks about how rich he is. He's just another rich b@stard.
Can you say BOTOX!!! Now you know why I dumped her.
She doesnt use botox u idiot. Ps brad has a little thing you can see on google and that was when G was with Him.
@Paltts Hey honey bunny, don cha go saying anything bout my braddy boy, or I'll make all my kids come stay with you for a week, then you'll be as crazy as us.
Can't wait for her movie, she's such a great actress. All her movies are great and I've seen them all 5 times at least.
i believe I'm going to have some weiner! weiner! weiner! weiner!! in celebration of the legalization of pot on nov 2 in californiacation.
