Favorite country-singing performances?

Oh dear. Saw “Country Strong” last night, and can’t help but wonder — did Gwyneth Paltrow want to sing so badly that she didn’t bother to read the whole script? There’ll be no awards for Paltrow for this performance (she’s not bad, but the movie’s pretty much a country-flavored turkey), but one thing I’ll hand to “Country Strong” was that it reminded me of how very good “Crazy Heart” was last year. Jeff Bridges is the latest actor to win an Oscar for playing a country singer — some of whom did their own singing, some of whom didn’t — and, now that I look back, they’re all pretty great performances. What’s your favorite?

Better luck next time, Gwyneth.
