Trivia: Country Strong
- Actor Allusion: Chiles's parents seemed to be based on Leighton Meester's parents.
- Dueling Movies: With Crazy Heart.
- Not Screened for Critics: despite being intended as Oscar Bait, Sony chose not to screen the film for critics (possibly out of embarrassment). Most critical reviews were very negative.
- Star-Derailing Role: The successive failures of this movie, Monte Carlo and That's My Boy ended any chance Leighton Meester had at becoming a bankable Hollywood star.
