Gwyneth Paltrow planning to release country album

Actress in discussions with Atlantic Records

Gwyneth Paltrow could be set to sign a record deal and release a country album.

The Seven and Shakespeare In Love star’s current role in Country Song sees her play a country musician fresh out of rehab. Now she is reportedly in advanced talks to make a country record with Atlantic Records.

A source told the New York Post: “Gwyneth‘s agents have been talking to a number of labels about her landing a substantial record deal.”

The source added: “Those who have heard the music say it’s country-pop. Many labels would be reluctant to give deal to a star whose first priority is film, but in recent weeks there have been discussions with Atlantic. Gwyneth is a very different name for Atlantic, and one who brings a lot of recognition.”

Paltrow has been flirting with the idea of a singing career for some time. She recently appeared in Glee as supply teacher Holly Holliday, where she performed Cee Lo Green‘s ‘Forget You’, which the pair also performed together at the Grammys. She has since performed at the Oscars and is set to return to Glee.
