Gwyneth Paltrow Talks About Her New Single 'Country Strong' (LISTEN)

Posted: Updated:

Gwyneth Paltrow has a new single out, the title track of her upcoming movie 'Country Strong.' Listen here.

Gwyneth charted a hit single with a remake of 'Cruisin' for the film 'Duets' in 2000, but she tells EW.com she didn't set out to have another radio hit.

"No! I didn't! What the hell?" she said. "No! I was just singing songs for the movie. I think the original plan was they wanted the bona fide crew to re-sing our songs, and then when [Sony Music Nashville chair] Joe Galante heard it, he was like, 'No, I want to release this as the single.' I was like, 'Excuse me please? What? What is going on?'"

In the movie, out December 22 and originally titled 'Love Don't Let Me Down,' Gwyneth plays a country star trying to get her career back after rehab. She gorged on fried food while filming in Nashville. She has also recorded a duet with her costar Tim McGraw for the film's end credits.
