nashville3Airing tonight on ABC, NASHVILLE is the delightfully soapy, exciting new musical drama that’s set against the backdrop of the world of country music. A classic combination of passion, jealousy, ambition and rivalry (mixed with musical performances) makes for a great hour of nighttime intrigue. Created by CALLIE KHOURI, the cast includes CONNIE BRITTON, HAYDEN PANETTIERE, SAM PALLADIO, CHARLES ESTEN, ERIC CLOSE, CLARE BOWEN, JONATHAN JACKSON and POWERS BOOTHE.
For actors PALLADIO (a Brit) and BOWEN (from Australia), the trip to America’s country music mecca might seem unlikely but, during our recent interview at a Television Critics Association press event, they talked about their musical roots and their roles on the show.
