Clare Bowen Talks Touring with Sugarland, Nashville

First Self-Titled Album Expected Late Summer 2018

When Clare Bowen first auditioned for Nashville’s Scarlett O’Connor, she thought for sure the role would go to someone else. Little did she know at the time how much that one audition would change her life.

“I knew it would be something very special,” Bowen told at the 2018 CMT Music Awards. “I stood there at my agent’s desk, and I read the whole script standing there.

“I thought, ‘I’m going to be so happy for the person that this goes to.’ I walked in with Scarlett’s accent the way it has always been, and my whole life changed within 24 hours. It was nuts.”
Her role on the show led to her meeting her husband Brandon Robert Young, and the two have decided to make Nashville their home while Bowen continues to work on her music career.

When the Nashville cast toured Europe this spring, Bowen peeled off to headline a successful solo tour in Germany. At one show, she remembers her crowd singing 2017’s“Little By Little” so loudly, she had to give the mic to them.

“It’s exactly what I wanted to do, and so I feel like I accomplished something over there. Now being on Sugarland’s tour with Jennifer Nettles and Brandy Clark, I’m kind of a little bit overwhelmed. It’s so wonderful, and we’re doing another solo tour in the U.K. in September, and there’s more to be announced. We just haven’t gotten there yet.”

Bowen’s latest release as a solo artist is the soul-stirring ballad, “All the Beds I’ve Made,” the first release from an upcoming self-titled album expected later this summer, marking the first time Nashies will get to know Bowen, the artist.
