Screen Gems has released for writer/director Shana Feste’s Country music drama Country Strong
starring Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim McGraw, 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 embarks 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.
