Brad Paisley Creating, Co-Producing TV Show Based on Nashville

Brad Paisley has teamed with actor Zach Quinto, producer Mark Schwann and writers Neal Dodson and Matt Bomer to create and co-produce a TV show for the CW Network, tentatively titled Nashville. According to a press release, the drama will focus on “an aspiring young female singer destined for stardom and a male songwriter whose career isn’t as certain.” The show is scheduled to begin airing on the CW network next season. “I’m very excited to portray the country music world of my favorite town, Nashville, by showing the exciting life of musicians, songwriters and performers — all very talented people,” Paisley said. “Look for some of your favorite country music stars to make their acting debuts on the show — either by playing themselves or as a character in the script. Country songs are like great scripts already, and it’s going to be fun to see how some unfold on the show.”
