I’m the perfect person to judge Gwyneth Paltrow’s performance at the Country Music Awards. Why? Because I love country music, and I’m not a fan of the movie star/singer cross-over. Having said that, she was fantastic. You’ll often see actors try to sing in movies, and it’s obvious how over-produced the music is. But movie studios always prefer to have their actors sing in the movie, because they know the audience favorably responds. I usually hate the end result, but Gwyneth Paltrow is an exception. She can actually sing. And I’m not just talking about “passing the test.” She sang live at the Country Music Awards and she not only pulled it off, but she sounded fantastic. She was obviously nervous, which is understandable considering country music fans are often very particular about letting you in their club. Watch below.
