Article/News: ‘Nashville’ Cast to Release Christmas Album
I posted this on twitter but I forgot to post it on here.
Life is imitating art for Jay DeMarcus and Sam Palladio. The Rascal Flatts bassist made a cameo appearance on ABC’s Nashville last season, making a date with Gunnar Scott (played by Palladio) for a songwriting session. The musician and actor became friends and real-life writing partners, crafting a tune together that just may end up on a future Flatts album — or on Nashville.
“He’s a wonderful musician, and I love his voice,” DeMarcus tells Rolling Stone Country of Palladio. “It’s refreshing to know that [the actors] representing us on the show are authentic.”
DeMarcus has now seen that authenticity first-hand with more than a dozen actors on the musical drama, as he produced Christmas With Nashville, an album of holiday standards and originals sung by the cast. Due in stores November 4th, the compilation includes Clare Bowen’s (Scarlett O’Connor) take on “Santa Baby,” Charles Esten (Deacon Claybourne) singing “Blue Christmas” and sisters Lennon and Maisy Stella (Maddie and Daphne Conrad) harmonizing on “Christmas Coming Home.”

I added over a dozen photos of Clare and a bunch of the Nashville cast at A Phil Everly Tribute last night. The cast looked awesome. Enjoy.
Celebration/Photos: CBW turns 2 Today + Photos!
Two years ago today, Clare Bowen Web was launched online. I first became a fan of Clare, like many, from her role of Scarlett on Nashville. The more I read about her the more interesting I found her to be and the more I began to realize what a great role model she was for young girls (something I feel is very important in this day and age). Every week, like many, I am blown away by her talents and become more of a fan each week. I have never met Clare. I have no real affiliation with her. I made this fansite because I wanted a place to mingle and fangirl over Nashville and Clare. I have met so many fans through the site and it’s awesome.
I had planned to launch with a new design on the site but I have been really busy offline. Instead, I added some new photos to celebrate and will put up a new design soon.
Thank you so much to everyone who visits the site and to Clare for being so inspirational, talented, kind, and so loving to her fans.
Press: Telegraph – 10 Country Songs That Will Make You Cry
Sam and Clare were mentioned in the recent Telegraph with an article entitled “10 Country Songs That Will Make You Cry” where I Will Fall made the list!
From the end of a relationship to the end of childhood, the stars of country music are masters at the art of making songs out of everyday sadness.
Clare Bowen & Sam Palladio – I Will Fall
The Channel 4 series Nashville may be fictional, but it comes with some serious country music chops: T-Bone Burnett oversaw the music on its first series, in which this song appeared. It was recorded by the two actors who play Scarlett O’Connor and Gunnar Scott, and written by Tyler James and Kate York, who has written multiple tracks for the show.

Best New Country Darling: Clare Bowen
The pint-sized Australian beauty won over the hearts of the crowd with her sweet voice and mixture of cover songs (Etta James, the Killers, Johnny Cash) and her own music. Many of the crowd simply knew her from her work on ABC’s Nashville, but it’s safe to say she wowed the uninitiated with her charming personality and genuine appreciation for those who watched her 45-minute performance early in the day. And Nashville fans were especially rewarded: Bowen brought out costar Charles Esten for a surprise duet on the song “This Town.”
