Hollywood met Nashville back in 2010 with the release of the emotionally-charged film, Country Strong, starring none other than Tim McGraw. While McGraw and Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow took on the lead roles of country music royalty, Kelly and James Canter, Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester and Troy’s Garrett Hedlund stole the show in the roles of Nashville’s brightest shining stars, Chiles Stanton and Beau Hutton.
Initially despising each other after Beau rejects Chiles as a “Country Barbie” following their joint placement as openers on Kelly’s three-city tour, the pair begin to fall for one another after Beau saves her when Chiles becomes overwhelmed by stage fright. At the suggestion of Kelly’s husband James, the pair begin performing together more and more on stage, resulting in a heart-melting duet titled “Give In To Me.”
“I’m gonna start a fire/ You’re gonna feel the heat/ I’m gonna burn for you/ You’re gonna melt for me,” they sing to one another. “Come on, come on/ Into my arms/ Come on, come on/ Give into me.”
The red-hot duet was written by Billy Falcon, Rose Falcon and Elisha Hoffman, the song performed in the film by Meester and Hedlund but recorded by Faith Hill for the soundtrack.
