What made the movie a joy to see was the music. The songs played during the movie were the kind of country songs I enjoy listening to. The original songs in the film have been making noise for some time, well before the movie was released. Star Gwyneth Paltrow has been getting great reviews for her songs on the soundtrack.
Also on the list of artists on the popular soundtrack were some recognizable names from the country world.
Yesterday on the radio I heard a song from the album – Country Strong – only now it was Faith Hill on lead vocals. In the the movie the song is performed by stars Garrett Hedlund and Leighton Meester. They do a great job, but hearing Faith’s version is a treat also. She always does such a great job and this song really suits her well.
Faith Hill performs Country Strong with the same passion and emotion she used on similar songs like Let’s Make Love, Breathe, and Cry. She’s so good with the love songs and Give In To Me is a great new country love song.
I like both versions of the song. It played well in the film with Garrett and Leighton on the vocals. They do a great job in the movie and it’s worth seeing for the music alone.
For the radio version I like hearing Faith. She’s great and makes any radio station better when she’s coming through the airwaves.
