Gwyneth Paltrow is set to perform “Country Strong,” the title track from her upcoming movie, at the CMAs Wednesday night. In the movie, she plays a troubled, alcoholic country singer. Referring to the gig, Paltrow told the press, “If I can keep my nerves under control I can survive it.”
Paltrow’s own celebrity fashion style doesn’t have a lot in common with the typical country music star, but the CMA red carpet has become a bit of a fashion industry focus as several country stars like Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood have become big celebrities in the past few years. Paltrow will have an easier time fitting into the designer sizes for the red carpet, according to her personal trainer Tracy Anderson. After putting on 20 pounds for the role, she managed to shed the extra weight once filming wrapped, mostly by cutting fried chicken from her diet.
