Country Strong Songwriting Contest

Country Strong Songwriting ContestUpcoming movie Country Strong is set to open in limited theaters on December 22, 2010 and everywhere on January 7, 2010.

Country Strong stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim McGraw, Garrett Hedlund and Leighton Meester, was written and directed by Shana Feste and produced by Jenno Topping and Toby Maguire.

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

Sony Music Entertainment is sponsoring a contest in celebration of Country Strong and wants to hear your what you have to say. One of the beautiful things about country music is the storytelling that goes into each and every song.
