Garrett Hedlund (On The Road, Tron, Troy, friday night lights, Four Brothers, Georgia Rule etc.) and Rob Pattinson on real life friends and soon to be real life rivals. Rob will be nominated for his role in Water For Elephants and Garrett really deserves the nomination for his role of Beau Hutton in Country Strong with Gweneth Pathrow, Leighton Meester & Tim McGraw.
The sound track is beautiful and Garrett actually learned to sing and play Guitar for the movie. He spent months on Tim McGraw's ranch near Nashville. He was broke, so Tim McGraw was kind enough to give Garrett his own cabin so Garrett could be embedded in the country music scene there. His voice is beautiful and his acting is fantastic!
Country Strong will be a big winner at the award Shows this year. You don't have to like country to love this movie. The story and performances will draw you in along with the outstanding musicical performances.
