The Country Strong movie hasn’t exactly burned up the box office, but the soundtrack is doing well.

The film’s song “Coming Home”—performed by the movie’s star, Gwyneth Paltrow—landed an Oscar nomination in the Original Song category. That means songwriters Tom Douglas, Troy Verges, Bob DiPiero and Hillary Lindsey are up for some fancy trophies.

Meanwhile, the soundtrack album is at No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart and at no. 6 on the all-genre Billboard 200.

The 83rd Academy Awards will air on ABC Feb. 27.
