Since Nashville has been repeats there hasn’t been much going on with Clare. Officially, Nashville has not been picked up for season two yet. Keep your fingers crossed. Clare posted on Twitter yesterday that she had just wrapped up filming her last scene for the season. Remember, this week an all new Nashville will be airing.
I took this time to update the gallery with missing photos and replacing smaller photos for larger ones since not much else was going on with Clare. Reminder: Please submit your messages, photos, or graphics for Clare’s Birthday Project. Deadline to send stuff in is on May 9th.

Clare will be there for the film screening along with the film’s director, Jared Moshe! Buy your tickets now ($12 each!) there is limited seating!! To buy your tickets click here!
Check out the trailer to see what the movie’s about:
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
Australian actress Clare Bowen, 23, landed the role of Scarlett O’Connor, a Mississippi Delta waitress turned singer/songwriter, on the ABC drama Nashville. The Southern accent she sports is advertently because of her dad, who brought home such movie fare as Steel Magnolias and Fried Green Tomatoes. “For me, two things physically shape my characters: the way I move my mouth and the shoes I wear. Scarlett wears very old men’s Frye boots, which are kind of clunky and ground her.”
FOX has announced that it will be giving Nashville a full season. woohoo!! Keep on watching and share the love with friends and family.
ABC has given the vote of confidence to freshman drama Nashville and expressed optimism in Friday comedies Last Man Standing and Malibu Country.
The network has given a back-nine order to the country music drama from Oscar winner Callie Khouri and picked up three additional scripts for both Tim Allen comedy Last Man Standing and Reba McEntire rookie Malibu Country. Leading into the fall season, the critically acclaimed Nashville received an aggressive marketing campaign ahead of its Oct. 10 premiere. Opening in Revenge’s former time slot on Wednesdays at 10 p.m., the series scored a 2.8 rating among adults 18-49 and 8.93 million viewers, falling below industry expectatios for the well-reviewed series.
It easily bested its time slot competition — NCIS and Chicago Fire — in the key demo, but lost a significant chunk of its haul (half a point) in its second half hour. Thus far this season, the Connie Britton and Hayden Panettiere drama from Lionsgate TV and ABC Studios is averaging 6 million total viewers and 2.12 rating among the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demo.
