Before she made her live singing debut on Wednesday's CMAs, Gwyneth Paltrow relied on few friends in high places for pointers.
"I kind of asked my girl singer friends [for advice]," she told Access Hollywood before belting out the title track to her new drama, "Country Strong." "I asked Faith [Hill] a lot of questions -- and Beyonce, actually, too."
She said she "studied" Beyonce's past live performances to see how she exudes "confidence" on stage.
Said Paltrow, 37, "I'm lucky that I know some singers in real life."
Her performance was well-received.
Miranda Lambert said she did "a great job ... it was awesome. She has a great voice."
Said Entertainer of The Year recipient (CMAs co-host) Brad Paisley: "She looked like she's been doing this her whole life ... when did she find time to go out and learn how to be a singer? I'm floored!"
