By now, everyone is familiar with the fact that Gwyneth Paltrow can not only act--she can sing. And she can sing country, too; as evidenced by her performance on the title track to the upcoming movie Country Strong (which she also flawlessly delivered live on stage at the Country Music Association Awards last month, lest anyone think recording-studio magic might have helped her vocals out a bit).
Here's a fun little secret you're about to be let in on, though, regarding Ms. Paltrow's Nashville credibility. Gwyneth can not only croon a heartfelt ballad, she can belt out a party tune and hold her own with the best of the bad girls out there. We're delighted to premiere the video for "Shake That Thing," in which Gwynnie sings about bellying up to the bar in skintight jeans, drinking Cuervo, and making the cowboys "want it." Woo-hoo!
All I can say is, goodness gracious, what would Chris Martin think? Just kidding. This is good old-fashioned honky-tonk fun stuff, folks. Get this girl on stage with the Muzikmafia! Or hey, I'd love to see Gwyneth and Miranda Lambert do a duet together, wouldn't you? In the meantime, I'm looking forward to the nationwide premiere of Country Strong on January 7, in which Gwyneth stars opposite Tim McGraw and plays a bona fide girl-gone-wrong country singer.
Check out the video for "Shake That Thing" and let me know what you think of her latest performance!
