The chorus of the single goes: "Cos I'm country strong / Hard to break like the ground I grew up on / You may fool me and I'll fall / But I won't stay down long / Cos I'm country strong."
In the film, Paltrow plays Kelly Canter, a country star looking for a comeback and McGraw plays her husband and manager. Meester portrays a former beauty queen. The movie was written and directed by Shana Feste and is set to be released on December 22.
Paltrow, an Oscar winner who is married to Coldplay singer Chris Martin, also lent her vocals to the song "Cruisin", a duet with rock singer Huey Lewis that was featured on the soundtrack of the 200 film Duets.
McGraw also starred in the 2009 film The Blind Side, which earned Sandra Bullock an Academy Award and more recently, a Teen Choice Awards nomination.
