COUNTRY ISN’T FOREIGN TO STREEP

SHARE COUNTRY ISN’T FOREIGN TO STREEP

She does great foreign accents, but can Meryl Streep sing country?

Apparently so, given a little practice. The Streep, 41, belts out a country tune in "Postcards from the Edge," a film based on Carrie Fisher's novel about a drug-plagued actress who, among other things, sings in a Western movie."I was beside myself with fear," Streep said in the Aug. 6 issue of Time magazine. "My knees were going a mile a minute and my upper lip was uncontrollable."

Streep said she practiced the song for three days until she and director Mike Nichols were satisfied. The movie comes out this fall.
