Gwyneth Paltrow to Sing at CMA Awards

No pressure, but acclaimed actress Gwyneth Paltrow will make her live public singing debut in front of 16,000 people and another 10 million-plus on television on the Country Music Association Awards show. Gwyneth will be singing “Country Strong,” the title track from her upcoming movie with Tim McGraw.

The song had a slow start when it was released to country radio a month or so ago, but several Music Row insiders say it shows Gwyneth does have some pipes. And she’ll do the performance with Vince Gill backing her up, so that should help calm any fears she might have.

The soundtrack is coming out Oct. 26, and the movie opens Jan. 7. Watch the trailer for Country Strong.
