    DigitalSpy: Chris Martin 'wrote songs with Faith Hill'

    chrismartin2008a.jpgTim McGraw has sparked rumours that Chris Martin has been taking influence from country music, after revealing that his wife Faith Hill recently wrote a number of songs with the Coldplay frontman, claim DigitalSpy today.


    The two families are known to have become close after McGraw starred opposite Martin's wife Gwyneth Paltrow in the recently-released film Country Strong. "My wife is a huge Coldplay fan, and they spent a lot of time writing songs," McGraw told a surprised Chelsea Handler during E!. "I don't want to start any rumours or anything, but I ain't heard any songs yet!"


    Martin has previously collaborated with a number of artists outside of the rock genre, including rapper Jay-Z and pop singer Nelly Furtado. Coldplay have spent the past two years working on their currently-untitled fifth studio album.

    Meanwhile, Glee star Matthew Morrison has revealed that Coldplay only allowed their songs to be performed on the show after it became a success, again reported by DigitalSpy this weekend.


    Morrison made the claim after admitting that Coldplay had initially denied show creator Ryan Murphy use of the band's back catalogue. "In the pilot I was meant to sing 'Viva La Vida' by Coldplay but they wouldn't give us the rights," Morrison explained to Contactmusic. "Then, once the show got started Chris Martin called Ryan [Murphy] to apologise and say we could use whichever song we wanted," Morrison continued. "So I hope we'll tackle that one."


    Murphy has yet to use any Coldplay songs in the series, despite receiving the band's approval. Glee continues with its second season on February 6 on Fox.
