The television show "NASHVILLE" prompted the world to fall in love with country music. The country music drama starred Charles Esten, Connie Britton and Hayden Panetierre as they navigated life, love and the highs and lows of the music business. "NASHVILLE" finished its run on CMT in 2018, but now a few of the show's stars are returning to the country music spotlight.
"NASHVILLE" The Reunion Tour is headed this way. The tour will include Clare Bowen, Charles Esten, Jonathan Jackson and Sam Palladio, who will perform classic songs from the series along with their original material. After a five-year hiatus from touring in the United States as a group, the singing actors will play shows in Nashville and Chicago before heading for a run of concerts in the U.K. Chris Carmack will join his castmates on stage in Chicago on September 23.
"I'm thrilled to be reuniting on stage with these wonderful Nashville friends here in the U.S. First, at Chicago's beautiful @rosemonttheatre and then, most fittingly, on that historic stage where @nashvillecmt said it's final goodbye and sang its last song - the Mother Church herself- @theryman," Esten wrote on Instagram.
The four artists will play the Ryman Auditorium on September 25, before heading to the U.K. on October 11. Due to overwhelming demand, additional dates were added to the U.K. tour, which will visit Glasglow, Birmingham, Manchester, London and Cardiff.
"NASHVILLE" debuted in 2012 against the backdrop of Nashville's music scene, and the show followed the lives of Clare Bowen (Scarlett O'Connor), Chris Carmack (Will Lexington), Charles Esten (Deacon Claybourne), Jonathan Jackson (Avery Barkley) and Sam Palladio (Gunnar Scott) as they tried to make lives in the country music business.
The show reached 225 territories worldwide before its final season in 2018 and spawned 22 soundtracks, including a Christmas album, which collectively sold millions of copies.
Tickets for Chicago and Nashville go on sale on Friday, April 21 at 10:00 am CST. Ticket information for all U.S. and U.K. shows can be found at www.nashvillereuniontour.com.
