'Country Strong' Soundtrack Details Revealed

Sony/BMG

'Country Strong,' the upcoming feature film starring Gwyneth Paltrow and Tim McGraw, will have a star-studded soundtrack. The song listing for the disc, due in stores October 26, was announced Tuesday, with tracks by all four of the movie's main stars -- Gwyneth, Tim, Leighton Meester and Garrett Hedlund -- as well as by some of country music's most famous voices. Trace Adkins, Ronnie Dunn, Sara Evans, Faith Hill, Patty Loveless, Hank Williams, Jr., Lee Ann Womack and Chris Young all have tunes on the album, with Tim serving as executive producer.

Songwriting credits on the 'Country Strong' soundtrack also boast some of Nashville's finest, including Rhett Akins, Natalie Hemby, Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott, Luke Laird, Josh Kear and Dallas Davidson. Each song has a different set of co-producers, with famed music moguls like Tony Brown, Nathan Chapman, Byron Gallimore, Frank Liddell and James Stroud at the helm of various tracks.

Gwyneth sings four songs on the soundtrack, including the title track and a duet with Tim called 'Me and Tennessee,' which was written by her husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. The Oscar-winning beauty plays the role of Kelly Canter, an emotionally unstable country star who gets involved with an up-and-coming singer-songwriter (played by Garrett Hedlund). The twosome embark on a career resurrection tour masterminded by Kelly's husband/manager (Tim McGraw) and featuring a beauty-queen-turned-singer (Leighton Meester) as the opening act. Between shows, romantic entanglements and old demons threaten to derail them all. (Watch a sneak preview of the film after the soundtrack details below.)

'Country Strong' hits movie theaters in Los Angeles and Nashville on December 22, 2010, and nationwide on January 7, 2011. The movie's theme song, 'Country Strong,' performed by Gwyneth Paltrow with background vocals by Vince Gill and Patty Griffin, is available now on iTunes. Download it here.

Yeah the song give in to me....is a song for Garrett Hedlund to sing not Faith Hill which was very dissapointing given the fact that alot of the music on the soundtrack isnt the singers in the movie. I loved the movie and the music...not sure I will buy the soundtrack now. Not a big fan of Faith Hill. Just sayin!!!!

Disappointed that the soundtrack does not have all of the songs sung by the cast in the movie. I wanted to hear the songs as I saw/heard in the film. Disappointing.

So glad you like the song. here are the actual lyrics :)

Give In to Me (Billy Falcon/ Rose Falcon/ Elisha Hoffman)
I’m gonna wear you down
I’m gonna make you see
I’m gonna get to you
Your gonna give in to me

I’m gonna start a fire
Your gonna feel the heat
I’m gonna burn for you
Your gonna melt for me

Come on, Come on
In to my arms
Come on, Come on
Give In to Me

Your gonna take my hand
Whisper the sweetest words
And If your ever sad
I’ll make you laugh
I’ll chase the hurt

My heart is set on you
I don’t want no one else
And if you don’t want me
I guess I’ll be all by myself

Come on, Come on
In to my arms
Come on, Come on
Give In to Me

I’ll use my eyes to draw you in
Until I’m under your skin
I’ll use my lips
I’ll use my arms
Come on, Come on , Come on…

Give Into Me

I bought the album and have listened to the song, "Give In To Me" several times and I am hooked. I thought I would write down the lyrics for those who have not yet bought the album. It really is a great song and Faith makes me want to give in to her so badly. lol! Here are the lyrics, they are not included in the liner notes of the cd. I just listened to the song and wrote them down for all my fellow Faith Fanatics. Enjoy!!



"Give In To Me" by Faith Hill


I'm going to wear you down
I'm gonna make you see
I'm gonna get to you
You're gonna give in to me

I'm gonna start a fight
You're gonna feel the heat
I'm gonna burn for you
You're gonna melt for me

Come on, Come on, in to my arms
Come on, Come on, give in to me

You're gonna take my hand
Whisper the sweetest words
And if you're ever sad, I'll make you laugh
I'll chase the blues
My heart is set on you
I don't want no one else
And if you don't want me
I guess I'll be all by myself

Come on, Come on, in to my arms
Come on, Come on, give in to me

I'll use my eyes to draw you in
Until I'm under your skin
I'll use my lips
I'll use my arms

Come on, Come on
Give in to me, Give in to me
Come on, Come on
Come on, Come on.

I can't wait to buy this CD. Based on the trailer of Gwyneth Paltrow singing and with all the other artists, it's going to be great!
