Garrett Hedlund auditioned at a karaoke bar in Koreantown singing a Pearl Jam song. According to director Shana Feste, "It really wasn't the best showcase ever of his voice, but Garrett went to school for us. Literally, he took four months off and started learning how to play the guitar, took voice lessons, went to Nashville early, started working with Nathan Chapman, a record producer in Nashville who produces Miranda Lambert. I mean, he became a country singer." See more »

What does "amorous" means?
Having a propensity for falling in love.
What the hell are these things?
Well... as a woman in this industry, people have a habit of thinking I'm some kind of ignoramous. And my pageant training doesn't exactly help things, so I have to overcompensate. I don't want people to think I'm some dumb beauty queen.
I never called you a dumb beauty ...

I like Gweneth generally speaking. She loves Nashville and is here often. This movie was poorly written, poorly acted, poorly sung. That guy that is supposed to be the up and coming singer is terrible. Out of all the great singers in Nashville, how did they ever pick this loser? The guitar player players just very simple chords, nothing special. That girl that becomes the love interest, is only a very mediocre singer. Tim McGraw looks so out of place in his regular street clothes. I guess they would have had to pay him more to show up in his country attire. Don't know if Gweneth sang her own songs, but if she did she didn't do as good as Sissy Specek in Coal Miners Daughter
