Gwyneth Paltrow goes country. Listen.

Gwyneth Paltrow I know a lot of people HATE this woman and can't figure out who she thinks she is with what everyone refers to as her weird snootiness and apparently she says things like "There's no excuse for not losing your baby weight," which makes some of my friends see red. And everyone points to her GOOP website as an example of her sheer jerkiness because she posts things like $5000 cargo pants and calls them the "coolest thing ever."

But I actually think she seems fun and sweet, and if she can afford $5000 pants and baby weight loss fairies (or however that's done) good for her.

So, I'm happy to report that Gwynnie's foray into country music isn't terrible (it's not her first singing gig. See also: Duets with Huey Lewis). She recorded this track for the movie Country Strong, scheduled to hit theatres in December, and it's being released as a single. MTV says Gwynnie plays a washed up country singer trying to resurrect her career with the help of her husband (Tim McGraw), an up-and-coming songwriter (Garrett Hedlund of "Tron: Legacy" fame) and a fresh new face on the country scene (Leighton Meester).

MTV gushes that the song is "excellent." I wouldn't go that far. It suffers from a little bit of boring. But it's quite good.

Your thoughts?

This is country strong. Better than some of the other new stuff. And she is not hard on the eyes either.
