The singing cast of county and western TV show Nashville are to head out on a mini-tour of the US.
Since it debuted in 2012, the show’s music has been widely acclaimed, with much of the praise going to T-Bone Burnett, who was the original Executive Music Producer on a show developed by his wife, screenwriter, producer and director Callie Khouri.
US TV network ABC has confirmed that several cast members will play three shows in April and May: Charles Esten (who plays Deacon), Clare Bowen (Scarlett), Jonathan Jackson (Avery), Sam Palladio (Gunnar) and Chris Carmack (Will) will perform live in Chicago, Washington DC and New York.
Nashville leads Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere will not appear in the line-up.
“We have an exceptionally talented cast of great actors, many who are also wonderful singers, musicians and songwriters,” said executive producer Steve Buchanan.
“It is exciting to be able to hit the road and be face to face with our show’s fans.”
Nashville is currently airing its second season Tuesday nights on TG4.
