Tim McGraw will welcome the crowd to Nashville's Municipal Auditorium on Tuesday, February 2 to film a climactic scene for the his movie Love Don't Let Me Down, which co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow. Audience members will have the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be featured as extras in a film as well as hear some great music, although Tim is not performing at the event. Admission is free and participants must be at least 18 years old.
The scene being filmed is about the moment superstar Kelly Canter, played by Gwyneth, wows them at her big comeback concert. Playing Kelly's opening acts are Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester and Garrett Hedlund (Tron Legacy), who, like Paltrow, will perform original songs written by some of Nashville's hottest composers. McGraw, who plays the non-singing role of Kelly's husband-manager, hails the concert as "an opportunity country fans won't want to miss." He adds, "Gwyneth, Leighton and Garrett are sensational singers, the songs are great and the scene is really exciting." Expect filming to run from 4-11 PM local time. The producers have invited Nashville-based charity SOLES4SOULS to be their partner in the event. Concertgoers are encouraged to bring pairs of new or slightly worn shoes to the event to support the Haitian relief efforts.
Sounds like fun! Wish I could be a part of it... ~Vanessa
