Country Strong Soundtrack Sticker

Country Strong Soundtrack
You've found the soundtrack that's attracting awards attention. Want to sing along with Gywneth Paltrow? Check out the full album: Share this one proudly. It's from our friends at Sony Nashville.
Req: Check-in to the Gwyneth Paltrow recording artist page.

There's a double "HUH?" going on here. First is the timing of the release of this sticker. The original studio soundtrack was released in October and the movie soundtrack was released in January. Why wait until now to release the sticker? Were negotiations for it that rough? Second is the requirement that you have to check-in to Gwyneth Paltrow's recording artist page. Why not tie it to every recording artist on the soundtrack?  Either way, it's very weird.


  1. Well... not only that, its a check-in sticker and you couldn't get it for over 24 hours after it showed up in the "featured" list. (As a matter of fact it still confuses me as it popped on my 5th check-in, so it looked like a fan sticker to me).

    Anyway, one possible explanation for the timing is that Paltrow is going to be singing from the soundtrack on the Oscars telecast tonight. If that is the case you'd think maybe the copy for the sticker would mention that... ho hum. Welcome to the crazy world behind these huge music companies.

  2. Thanks for giving the info how to earn this. I couldn't figure out how to do it from any of the 3 soundtrack pages (since you can only give a review and not a check-in). I couldn't figure out how to unlock this puppy. Thanks.
