Pop Culture Pulse: Gwyneth Paltrow gets musical

By Jen Chaney

When the Country Music Association Awards air Wednesday night on ABC, a new Nashville-style vocalist will make her CMA debut: Gwyneth Paltrow, who is scheduled to perform “Country Strong,” the title track from her upcoming movie of the same name.

The Oscar-winner — who established her onscreen pipes in “Duets,” a movie with a plot that only karaoke fanatics could love -- transitions from twang to funky-soul the following week when she makes her much-hyped guest appearance on “Glee.” The track she'll perform on the inescapable Fox series? “Forget You” -- the radio-friendly version of a normally bleep-worthy Cee-Lo Green song.

All of this naturally puts more promotional fuel behind the aforementioned film “Country Strong,” in which Paltrow stars as a Nashville diva attempting a comeback. Unless, of course, she somehow blows it during either of these orchestrated TV appearances. But given her talent, that seems unlikely.
