Now here’s an intriguing way to kick-start the third season of ABC’s Music City country soap drama, Nashville!

According to Entertainment Tonight, when the series returns with all-new episodes beginning Wednesday, September 24th (9PMET), during the east coast and the west coast feeds of the broadcast, two live musical performances from two of the cast members will be featured!

Chris Carmack, who plays Will Lexington, will perform “If It’s Love” by The Striking Matches, and Charles Esten, who stars as  Deacon Claybourne, will sing “I Know How to Love You Now,” co-written by Esten and Deana Carter.

Carmack and Esten’s performances will be broadcast live from the Bluebird Café in Nashville, and both the studio tracks and live renditions of the songs will be immediately available for download on iTunes after the premiere!

This is second time live performances have been mixed within a taped episode!

So, excited to hear and watch Carmack and Esten live?  Do you like the concept?  Looking forward to the return of Nashville?  Let us know!

I don’t know who any of those people are nor do I care.

Was it a slow news week for soap operas or something?

for me-
Nashville is just not all that good..
It has country music ehhh
It has no grabbing stories, very weak on stories..

I do not even consider it a ‘soap’ type of program (it’s too lame ..

Well, I’m glad it’s back, and still in Nashville. I had heard they were considering a move to Austin, Tx. Sounds like it should be off to a good season.

I think Nashville should have been cancelled and the infinitely superior MISTRESSES given its time slot.

NASHVILLE is an excellent show! GREAT music, wonderful characters! Sooooooo relieved when they decided to renew and happy that it remains in Nashville.

Can’t wait for the Season Three and anxious to see how this live show kicks off!

Yay! 😉

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.

NASHVILLE To Become Broadway Musical

Looks like the Music City drama, Nashville, originally on ABC and then on CMT, has more than nine lives! Now the popular soap is headed to the stage and Broadway after six seasons on the small screen.

The show is set to have a musical adaptation with 10-time Tony Award winner Scott Delman (American IdiotRagtimeBook of MormonHello, Dolly!Fun HomeMean Girls) in charge.  In addition, Delman will serve as lead producer of the show and he has acquired the live theatrical rights from Lionsgate and ABC Studios.

Nashville, with its complex, relatable characters and sweeping emotional gestures, has all of the narrative elements that I look for in great theatrical source material,” Delman said in a statement. “From that rich DNA, we will be building an original story with entirely original music, written by major Nashville and Broadway songwriters.  We are particularly excited to deliver Broadway’s first score of true contemporary country music — a genre that has exploded with mainstream audiences in recent years. Lionsgate has a treasure-trove of sterling IP, and I’m honored to be a part of this new phase of their live entertainment division.”

Additional information on the upcoming musical, including production dates and a creative team, is expected to be announced shortly.  Now the question becomes; will some of its beloved series stars be in the Broadway rendition of the series?
