Gwyneth Gone Country

Rumor is that Gwyneth Paltrow, high off the success of herperformance as a country singer in the movie Country Strong and a couple of appearances on Glee , isgoing to sign a deal with Atlantic Records to record an album of "countrypop." You might think that a privileged princess like Gywn has not had enoughhardships in her life to really sell an album of country songs, which arestereotypically full of cheatin' men, bills to pay, and hard drinking. But BrowBeat has unearthed a secret partial track list for Gwyneth's album, Movie Producer's Daughter , and the poorstar has really had some tough times:

Update: Have any suggestions of your own? Leave them for us in the comments or tweet them with the hasthag #GwynethTracks. We'll lasso up the best and, if we get an album's worth, publish them in a forthcoming post.
