Gwyneth Paltrow is something of a nervous wreck as she preps to make her live country music singing debut at Wednesday's Country Music Awards (CMAs) in Nashville.

Paltrow, 38, will croon "Country Strong," the title track from the upcoming flick of the same name in which she plays a down-at-heel singer striving for a post-rehab comeback.

"I actually feel better this week about singing the song on the awards show," the actress told Reuters Monday at the movie's Nashville premiere.

"I was really bad last week; I lost my appetite and I couldn't sleep," the married mother of two added.

Closer to the big night, she says "I feel prepared this week. If I can keep my nerves under control I can survive it."

In the film, her country hubby is played by Tim McGraw, whose real-life wife Faith Hill had high praise for Paltrow.

"[She] has so much respect for country music," Hill said Monday.

And watch out, Nashville: London dweller Paltrow, married to Brit rocker Chris Martin, wouldn't mind relocating to Tennessee. "I would love it," she claimed. "My dream is to have land somewhere outside of Nashville and have a big organic farm outside of the city."
