It wasn’t Country Strong but Glee that started Gwyneth Paltrow down the path of a career in music. I don’t know whether that’s worthy of thanks or blame.
Paltrow doesn’t have much of a voice… unlike, say, Zooey Deschanel, there’s no way she would have landed a recording contract without her previous fame as an actress. But the joy with which she tackles this unlikely career turn is infectious. I find myself wanting her to do well.
