Country music purists can now rest easy, but fans of Country Strong may be disappointed--Gwyneth Paltrow is apparently not planning on cutting an album any time soon.
It was widely reported earlier in the month that the actress, who starred in 2010's Nashville drama Country Strong and performed music from the film at the CMA and Academy Awards, signed a nearly million-dollar deal with Atlantic Records. The project she was suggested to be helming was termed "country-pop."
However, guess it's not meant to be. Paltrow told the Hollywood Reporter this week that she is still in the process of figuring out if, when, and how she'd like to enter the recording studio.
"The truth is, I really would love to make a record," she explained. "But I don't know exactly how you do that so it's not cheesy."
Paltrow also put to rest the rumor that she'd be concentrating on country music, saying she'd likely make an album with an "indie" sound instead. (But, to be fair, that's pretty vague. Country can be indie, too, ya know!)
Paltrow seemed much more enthusiastic about her stint with hit TV musical Glee, on which she made two critically acclaimed--and non-country-related--appearances. "I think it's the best job I've ever had," she told the Hollywood Reporter. "I'm sure I'll go back there at some point."
Are you disappointed or relieved that Gwyneth will not be making an album anytime soon--and that if she does, it sounds as if it won't be following in Country Strong's footsteps? Be sure to let me know what you think!
