Leighton Meester Goes Country: Another 'Country Strong' Single Leaked

This summer, the first single from the upcoming film Country Strong leaked: a twangy, upbeat ballad performed by an unlikely country singer: Gwyneth Paltrow.

The next single that's surfaced from the film is a slower duet, sung by another actress with no previous country credentials: Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester. Can her performance compare to Gwyneth's, which got rave reviews at the Country Music awards earlier this month?
