I'm not a country music fan, but I hope her movies kick butt - I've been very frustrated at all the attention Blake's getting, which is more because Anna Wintour likes her - not on her actually abilities as an actress. Blake may become a celebrity, but Leighton could become a star... Go Leighton!

You'd think this movie was about Gwyneth Paltrow because she seems to be the one in the press promoting the movie. But the previews I've seen on tv seem to showcase Meister alot! I might have to go see this movie after all.

Go to YouTube and check out the latest Country Strong clip. Leighton sing "Summer Girl". It's catchy, it's upbeat, it's cute. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside. Looking forward to this movie. And all of Leighton's upcoming ones too.... "Monte Carlo", "The Oranges" and "Roommate". Leighton is showing a lot of range in her movie roles and that's great for us fans. :o)

I don't really like country, but I'm glad Leighton is branching out. As for her voice, I prefer Taylor's, but she's great nonetheless.
