Coldplay singer Chris Martin is nominated in the Best Song category for next year's Oscars.

The singer wrote the track 'Me And Tennessee' which has been nominated for one of the prestigious film industry awards after it was used in his wife, Gwyneth Paltrow's movie 'Country Strong', about an alcoholic country singer trying to stage a comeback.

The track is one of 41 long listed in the Oscars category, which will be whittled down to five when the full nominations are announced in January.

Other pop artists nominated for Best Song include Janet Jackson and Alanis Morissette.

'Yellow' singer Chris is presently in the studio working on Coldplay's latest album, and while 'Me And Tennessee' was written on his own, he said he likes the brutal honesty his other band members - guitarist Johnny Buckland, bassist Guy Berryman and drummer Will Champion - show when he presents them with his lyrics.

He said: "Jonny's delightful, he's the easiest to convince. It's when you have to take a verse to Guy or Will that things become very tearful. You can forget there are other people in the world.

"I'm so lucky that we have that group, in as much as there are a lot of people who don't like us in the world, but there would be a lot more without this filtering system. Think of the rubbish that doesn't get out, if you don't like the stuff that does."
