Gwyneth Paltrow has teamed up with husband Chris Martin for the soundtrack of her new film.

The actress, who plays a washed-up country singer in Country Strong, turned to the Coldplay frontman to pen a duet - Me And Tennessee - between her and her on-screen husband, played by Tim McGraw.

"Me And Tennessee is a special song that perfectly fits the movie," Gwyneth told People.

"It's about a couple who are maybe irreparably damaged. But then the chorus is, 'Then that old song comes on, together we're singing, forever we're singing, that old country song.'

"So it's about country music bringing people back together when they're having a difficult time in life," she added.

Gwyneth, who first sang on screen in 2000's Duets and is reportedly going to sing on Glee this season, has three other songs on the soundtrack, where she is joined by co-star Leighton Meester and country stars like Faith Hill, Trace Adkins and Lee Ann Womack.
