Song of the Day: "Coming Home"

It's in the Oscar hunt this year, following in the footprints of "The Weary Kind" from Crazy Heart from last year.
  • Alcoholic country musician on the downside of a career? Check. 
  • Brash young upstart surpassing the one who gave them their start? Check. 
  • Sung by the multi-talented star of the film? Check. 
  • Tim McGraw? Wait, he's only in this one.

The music and lyrics are by Bob DiPiero, Tom Douglas, Hillary Lindsey and Troy Verges, which means one of them is out of luck if the song picks up an Oscar nomination next month. Which I think is a pretty reasonable prediction.

Song: "Coming Home"
Artist: Gwyneth Paltrow
