Editorial Reviews

The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for the film Country Strong (described below) includes original songs from the movie performed by Gwyneth Paltrow, Garrett Hedlund, and Leighton Meester.

Soon after a rising young singer-songwriter (Hedlund) gets involved with a fallen, emotionally unstable country star (Paltrow), the pair embark on a career resurrection tour helmed by her husband/manager (McGraw) and featuring a beauty-queen-turned-singer (Meester). Between concerts, romantic entanglements and old demons threaten to derail them all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed January 8, 2011
By Matthew
Format:Audio CD
I rarely ever write comments so take it for what it's worth. I'm disappointed to find out that the CD doesn't contain the actual artists that performed the songs in the movie. I think Faith Hill is talented, but Give In To Me performed by Leighton Meester and Garrett in the movie is so much better. I just watched the movie and was planning on buying the soundtrack, but will save my $15 for something else.

Like I said. Take it for what it's worth.

2.0 out of 5 stars Buy the other one January 18, 2011
By ms
Format:MP3 Music
If you are looking for the songs from the movie, buy "Country Strong (More Music from the Motion Picture" which is avalable as an MP3 download through amazon. This cd is ok, but the other one is what most people were expecting to get from the soundtrack for Country Strong.

Updated 10/28/10. After a couple of listens, boy does this one grow on you. Wow.

You heard it here first:

1) Both "COUNTRY STRONG" and "ME & TENNESEE" will be nominated for Best Song when Oscar comes a callin' this year.

2) Although Country Strong is beautiful, maybe SUPERB, Me and Tennesee is simply sublime, like no other song you've heard, different, beautiful, soaring, memorable, ONE FOR THE TIME CAPSULE. The harmonies will just stay with you forever. THIS SONG WILL WIN.

3) The Oscar ceremony MUST include a live duet of Me and T, sung by these 2. It will be SO POWERFUL, it will be one of the most memorable, electric Oscar performances ever. So make it happen powers that be. The people (person) have spoken.

Now for my revised and updated original review (increases stars to the max for it really needs a couple listens to fully appreciate, added some more text):

I must begin this review by stating that I am a huge fan of Tim Mcgraw, sort of a Faith Hill fan on ocassion, and importantly, a long-standing fan of the BEAUTIFUL, smooth-as-honey singing voice of the supremely talented Gwyneth Paltrow. Having been BOWLED over by the totally unexpected GP vocal gifts exhibited in DUETS, (out of nowhere at the time), especially Cruisin' and Just My Imagination (both pop classics, those renditions)- I was on the edge of my seat for months anticipating Country Strong. Then came the titular single last month. EXCELLENT - very strong and catchy. Great song. Passed my marker which is me singing it constantly in the shower. So, I was first up at Best Buy last night. Just imagining a duet with Tim McGraw! Those 2 together! (BTW GP's voice, pure and crystal clear, has an inherent twang to it, PERFECTLY suited for country).

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed too January 15, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I just saw the movie tonight and was so excited to get the CD. I'm sure glad I read the reviews & description of the CD because like a previous reviewer, I'm disappointed that many of the songs are not sung by the artists that sang them in the movie. I'm particularly disappointed to see that Garrett Hedlund has only one song on the CD. Because of this, I've decided my collection can do without this CD. If I want to listen to the music, I can watch the DVD when it comes out.

3.0 out of 5 stars If you want artists from movie go to Itunes January 11, 2011
By Lori G.
Format:Audio CD
I saw the movie and loved it. After viewing the movie I wanted to buy the soundtrack but found that this one on Amazon.com had the songs I liked but not sung by the artists who sang them in the movie. I was disappointed. There is a second album released from this movie that I found on itunes that has the original artists who sang the songs in the movie. My favorite, Give Into Me sung by Garrett Hedlund and Leighton Meester in the movie is on the second album, not this one on Amazon. I downloaded this song and Timing is Everything by Garrett Hedlund from itunes.com. If you want the real soundtrack, skip this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what I wanted January 10, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I saw the movie and loved the songs as they were performed in the movie. I was looking forward to purchasing the album, however, was very disappointed that the "original movie soundtrack" only contained about four songs from the movie.
If they were going to have country stars sing the songs from the movie, why couldn't a dual CD been offered: one CD with the songs as performed in the movie and the second with country stars performing them.
Very disappointing, especially not including the Garrett Hedlund/Leighton Meester the Give Into Me duo.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointed January 10, 2011
By Lisa
Format:Audio CD
This a a great CD, but I'm giving it only 3 stars because Garrett & Leighton's performance of Give In To Me is omitted. Listening to Faith Hill sing it after hearing them just made me sick.
