Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow is all set to play an alcoholic musician in her new movie Country Strong. The 37-year-old actress who is married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, will play Kelly Canter in the new film about a faded country singer, reported Daily Mail.

It's not the first time the Shakespeare In Love star has tried her hand at a music role - in 2000 she showed off her singing talents in Duets. However, Country Strong is Paltrow's first leading role since playing the daughter of a mathematician in the 2005 film Proof.

In her new film, which is set for release on January 7, Kelly Canter befriends up-and-coming singer songwriter Beau Williams, played by Garrett Hedlund, and the pair embark on a tour together, accompanied by Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester, whose character is also looking to break into the music industry.
