Gwyneth Paltrow playing a country singer is totally believable. Just watching the trailer, I am mezmerized by her and have totally forgotten that she is private school-educated, Upper East Side penthouse-raised, rich/famous parent-having, fake British accent-having, I'm Better Than You-thinking Gwyneth Paltrow!

This feels like contestants on RuPaul's Drag Race starring in a musical based on All About Eve. Except that was this, and she still couldn't have done it. That said, this clearly promises as many rewards as True Blood and I cannot wait for it."
At least this movie can rely on the realism of Texas prison-birthed Leighton Meester. Ironic that she's most famous for portraying private school-educated, Upper East Side-raised, rich/famous parent-having, I'm Better Than You-thinking girl on a show I've already mentioned once today. If I do it again I'll have to give it its own category.
This movie makes a mockery of country music, which has a tendency to make a mockery of itself from time to time without even trying.
