Country Strong hit the theaters on January 7, 2011 and has an all star cast including Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim McGraw and introduced Leighton Meester.
Country Strong is a four-star rated drama that features a fallen country star Kelly Canter played by Paltrow who is trying to rebuild her career along with an up and coming talented singer Chiles Stanton played by Meester. Canter is a recovering alcoholic that had recently been released out of rehab and her husband/manager played by McGraw forces her to embark on a tour in an effort to save her failing career.
The drama plays out more and more as romances arise and marriages crumble while the group travels together on this country tour. The plot thickens as Canter’s jealousy of the attention that new comer Chiles Stanton receives as the tour continues.
Country Strong is filled with amazing music that can be enjoyed by anyone, country fan or not. Join the tour and watch the emotional journey that a country star takes on her way back to the top.
Be sure to bring some tissue, it is a bit of a tearjerker.
