[lastfm]Gwyneth Paltrow[/lastfm]: Country Song? That’s right people it’s the first single from the soundtrack to her film of the same name. Gwyneth says it took her husband [lastfm]Chris Martin[/lastfm] to introduce her to the country classics like Johnny Cash, but has developed her own love of country.
Here’s what she had to say about our music. ”The thing I love about country music is I love the authenticity of it. Like, I like how the lyrics are often very stripped-down and just real. And I find it refreshing that there’s not a lot of irony in it and it’s just, like, straight from the heart. And I also love blue grass, and I just think it’s …there’s a beauty to it thats’s combined with a technical skill that I just find awe-inspiring, and I just…I’m very impressed with the skill level and also with the beauty of the songs.” Mercy.
