Gwyneth Paltrow and Tim McGraw bringing Country Strong to Blu-ray

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has announced that the film COUNTRY STRONG, starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim McGraw and Garrett Hedlund, will be released on Blu-ray April 12, 2011. Soon after a rising young singer (Garrett Hedlund) gets involved with a fallen country star (Gwyneth Paltrow), the pair embark on a career resurrection tour helmed by her husband/manager (Tim McGraw) and featuring a beauty queen-turned-singer (Leighton Meester). The film has received an Academy Award nomination and Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song entitled “Coming Home” which is performed by Ms. Paltrow.

This really isn’t my kind of film, but after watching the trailer for it I have to admit that I’m mildly (well, barely) intrigued. Still not so sure about the singer Gwyneth Paltrow, some actors cross over effortlessly into singing but I’m not completely convinced she’s one of them. Special features for COUNTRY STRONG include:
