Leighton & Gwyneth Premiere ‘Country Strong’ (PHOTOS)

Spotted: Gossip Girl’s quintessential New Yorker Leighton Meester (gasp!) venturing south for the Nashville premiere of her upcoming film, Country Strong, on Monday night.

Leighton strutted the red carpet with co-star Gwyneth Paltrow and a who’s-who of Music City crooners, including Faith Hill and husband Tim McGraw. Both Leighton and Gwyneth showcase their country singing chops in the upcoming movie about a washed-up star (Gwynnie) and her wide-eyed opening act (Leighton.)
