How amazing was last night’s episode?! It was great and Clare’s version of Twist of Barbed Wire was epic. I don’t know about you but I had to buy it instantly. If you want to buy it on itunes you can buy it with that link. I added screencaps from this week’s episode.
Hey guys, sorry for the lack of updates. Offline life has been hectic especially with the holidays. New updates to the site will not be added to the site until January 1, 2013. Hey, us webmasters need a break too! hehe. Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. Thanks for visiting and for being such awesome and loyal fans to Clare and the site. 🙂
Is there something you want to see more of on the site? Now is the time to speak up and let me hear it! I will be updating a lot of the old content and the gallery with old missing images. If you have anything you would like to donate: scans, appearances, photoshoots, candids, or even fanart, animations, or icons of any kind, please share them with us!
Clare has some really awesome fans who shared with me their fan encounters. The response was overwhelming and I thought I would put a new area on the site for fans to share their fan encounters and read the stories of others! You can read fan encounters and share your own here! I’ve also added a new “Kodak Moment” to the side.
Hey guys, I’ve added a bunch of missing old and new photos to the gallery. Enjoy!

CMT: What do you remember about the first time you sang together?
Palladio: We were at the Hutton Hotel here in Nashville. We’d just met that morning for the first time. … Buddy Miller turned up, as he does. He’s obviously an incredible singer and producer. He took us up to one of the hotel rooms while sort of gritting his teeth. And we were doing the same because the audition process hadn’t involved singing together. They’d just thrown us in the deep end. Buddy started playing the riff of “If I Didn’t Know Better,” and Clare started singing and sounded incredible. I thought, “Oh, my God, I’ve got to up my game because she sounds great!”
Bowen: But then he started singing, and it sounded beautiful. We looked each other and started thinking, “OK, it’s working.” … A grin spread across Buddy’s face, and he said, “Well, that was all right.” (laughs)
Palladio: I hadn’t been used to harmony singing. I’d been doing bits of it in my group back home, but I hadn’t really sung a duet with a female voice before. So we were very lucky that somehow the timbres in our voices worked really well together.
What do you think of now when you hear the word “Nashville”?
Bowen: Home. (laughs) And a dream come true.
Palladio: Yeah, it’s now going to have a huge significance in my life, I think, when somebody mentions the town in the future. It’s where dreams are being made for songwriters and certainly [represents] a huge jump in my career.
Bowen: It’s changed our lives.
Palladio: Yeah, it has.
Country music scored some new primetime cache in October, when the ABC drama Nashville debuted to almost nine million viewers. The series follows the romantic lives, career struggles and rivalry between two drastically different singers: Rayna James (played by Connie Britton), the well-established but currently foundering “Queen of Country,” and Juliette Barnes (Hayden Panettiere), the young country-pop crossover star du jour. The soundtrack to the first season is set for release on December 11th and features performances by both actresses and other series regulars, as well as production by T Bone Burnett, Dann Huff and Michael Knox. A deluxe version of the soundtrack is also set for release at Target.
Now, you can hear four tracks from the extended release, including Britton’s twangy take on “Changing Ground” and an acoustic version of Panettiere’s saccharine ballad “Undermine.” Clare Bowen, who plays the songwriter Scarlett O’Connor, also delivers a particularly deft bluegrass rendition of Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire,” and Sam Palladio, who plays the aspiring musician Gunnar Scott, wails over arch guitar on “I’ll Be There.” You can listen to these songs here

• 12/02/12: Big Machine Label Group Clare & Sam discuss Scarlett/Gunnar’s future. Listen.
Clare – Well, see we don’t actually get told that much. I prefer not to know very much because otherwise I end up playing the end at the beginning and I don’t like doing that. But anything can happen. This place is pretty magical. So you’ll just have to tune in.
Sam – There’s a definite development, I think, in Scarlett and Gunnar’s relationship but it goes all sorts of directions. It’s not going to be the obvious choice that I think ends. Yeah, you see Gunnar going through some difficult times a little bit further down the line and you see different lights and shades in all the characters.
