Gwyneth Paltrow is planning to fulfil a musical dream by hitting the road with her Country Strong co-star Tim Mcgraw for a number of live shows.

The pair teams up on screen in the new movie, which sees the Oscar-winning actress test her singing skills as a washed-up country star.

Paltrow, married to Coldplay rocker Chris Martin, proved her musical prowess by performing live at the Country Music Association Awards last month (Nov10), and she's hoping to test out life as a real country star by hitting the road with McGraw.

She tells, "(McGraw) keeps joking that I should go on the road as his opening act. And I keep saying, 'Let's do it. Let's make it happen.' I don't know about a whole tour but maybe a string of nights could be fun... I'm not sure I would ever quit my current job and become a full-time singer. I love my day job and we already have a musician in the family."
