About the Movie

Soon after a rising young singer-songwriter (Hedlund) gets involved with a fallen, emotionally unstable country star (Paltrow), the pair embarks on a career resurrection tour helmed by her husband/manager (McGraw) and featuring a beauty-queen-turned-singer (Meester). Between concerts, romantic entanglements and old demons threaten to derail them all.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Unfortunately weak. – Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine, Aug 22, 2011

Rotten: Shana Feste's screenplay seldom rises above the level of daytime TV; the only actor who triumphs over her trite dialogue is Tim McGraw in a nonsinging role as Paltrow's husband and manager. – Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader, Jan 14, 2011

Rotten: Country Strong has a bit more to recommend it -- the music most of all -- but it's still a tough slog through emotional swamplands. – Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Jan 7, 2011

Rotten: [A] mixed bag of a country music comeback fable. – Adam Graham, Detroit News, Jan 7, 2011

Great Movie with Great Music!

It's funny to me how people have a sense that they know what they're judging when they haven't even seen this movie..just because you see the word "Country" doesn't mean that it's all downhill from there. I do hair and make-up in the entertainment industry and let me be the one to tell you that this was an exact portrayal of what some artists go through. It hit my heart so strong that other than just looking at what recording artists do for a living, I look at them as the people they once were and long to become... Gwyneth Paltrow and the cast were amazing and gave it their all! The music speaks for itself and is one of those soundtracks that you can play over and over again. The Oscar nomination for "Coming Home" was a well deserved nomination! Truth be told, Great Movie and Great Music!


I think that the top critics are all from where? up north. everyone out of hundreds of people i know loved the movie. and thats just my town.

Gwyneth Paltrow rox!! Great movie
