You know them as characters Scarlett, Will, Deacon and Gunner from the hit TV series “Nashville,” but in real life, Clare Bowen, Chris Carmack, Charles Esten and Sam Palladio are musicians who can also. In fact, Clare and Sam have been readying albums for the last few years while Chris Carmack released his debut EP “Pieces of You” in 2015.
Now the musicians are packing their guitars and heading to play the United Kingdom in June. The “Nashville” artists toured to sold-out shows in the States in 2014 and 2015.
“The “Nashville” cast is comprised of individuals who excel as actors, musicians, songwriters, and performers,” said Steve Buchanan, President of Opry Entertainment. “Since the first night the series went on the air, the cast members have also become incredible ambassadors for our Tennessee home, connecting with viewers around the world via television. Everyone is thrilled about the opportunity to be face-to-face with our fans throughout the U.K. during these intimate, exciting performances celebrating the best of Nashville.”
Launching in Manchester, England with stops in Birmingham, Glasgow, Bristol and London, the gang will perform songs from the series, along with original material. The shows will also be a homecoming for Sam (who plays Gunner) who was born in Cornwall, England.
