 As a legend of country music, Vince Gill has had the opportunity to sing with the best of the best in the industry. However, one of the most unexpected (but, amazing) collaborations was with Oscar award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow

The 2010 film Country Strong was an instant box office hit. Paltrow starred in the film alongside Tim McGraw, in which she played Kelly Canter, a country music star trying to make a comeback after a rough past and stint in rehab. McGraw plays her husband and manager, trying to control her second chance at fame. 

Paltrow took the role seriously, taking lessons and even learned to play the guitar. So when she joined Gill on stage at the CMA Awards that year, she was more than prepared to put on a good performance. Although she started the performance a little uneasy, she grew more comfortable as the song progressed. Even receiving a standing ovation from the audience! 

In an interview with The Boot, Paltrow explained her new found love for country music while filming in Nashville. 

“There’s a real love and respect between people in the industry here, which is palpable and sets the stage for creativity and that kind of freedom when you feel supported and respected by other musicians,” she added. “It sets you up to win, and the whole town is brimming with creativity.”

Watch Paltrow's performance with Vince Gill below. Enjoy! 

LYRICS BELOW 

I know you see me
Like some wide eyed dreamer
That just rolled in off a dusty mid west bus
Yeah, on the outside I look fragile
But on the inside is something you can’t crush

Cause I'm country strong
Hard to break
Like the ground I grew up on
You may fool me
And I'll fall
But I won’t stay down long
Cause I’m country strong

I have weathered
Colder winters; Longer summers
Without a drop of rain
Push me in a corner
And I’ll come out fighting
I may lose but I ‘ll always keep my faith

Cause I’m country strong
Hard to break
Like the ground I grew up on
You may fool me
And I’ll fall
But I won’t stay down long
Cause I’m country strong

Cause I’m country strong
Hard to break
Like the ground I grew up on
You may fool me
And I’ll fall
But I won’t stay down long
Cause I’m country strong

I’m country strong
Yeah, I’m country strong
I’m country strong
I’m country strong
I’m country strong
