#NashChat Goes Meta: Charles Esten Eats Ice Cream with Himself

A Little Bit Stronger

In the recent Facebook #NashChat, Charles “Chip” Esten stops by to chat about recent Nashville episode A Little Bit Stronger. Host Amy asks Esten to weigh in on hot topics like dating at a young age, working with Connie Britton and, of course, the ice cream he brought for the entire #NashChat crew.


There’s a beautiful father-daughter scene in the episode where Deacon and Maddie talk dating over bowls of ice cream. What’s crazy about that is before filming the #NashChat after-show, Esten was eating ice cream while watching this very scene on CMT. That means, Esten was imitating art. Or, Deacon was imitating life? Perhaps there was a glitch in the Matrix? What?!

Watch the #NashChat for all the details, and mind-blowing meta-ness. And catch new episodes of Nashville every Thursday at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
