‘Nashville’ star Clare Bowen on country music, perfecting her drawl, and that pesky love triangle

You wouldn’t know it from watching the show, but Nashville star Clare Bowen’s drawl is pure practice. The Australia native, who plays waitress-slash-reluctant-singer/songwriter Scarlett O’Connor on the show, tells EW that her father used to bring home movies like Song of the South and Fried Green Tomatoes when she was growing up, and she had a good ear for the country sound. “It’s always been my favorite accent,” she says.

Bowen also talks about Scarlett’s ongoing drama in her relationships with writing partner Gunner (U.K. native Sam Palladio) and her boyfriend on the show, Avery (Jonathan Jackson). But clearly, the drama stays on TV: It was also just announced that Bowen will join Palladrino for a Grand Ole Opry concert at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium this weekend.

‘Nashville’ is not like ‘Glee,’ say stars Sam Palladio and Clare Bowen

You’ll hear plenty of music on ABC’s juicy new soap, “Nashville,” but don’t expect the characters to burst into song at any given moment. There’s “a fair bit” of music on the show, says star Sam Palladio. Makes sense, since it’s about two feuding country superstars in the Music City. “The great thing about it is it’s not your ‘Glee’ or ‘Smash’ where a song kind of bursts out of thin air,” Palladio tells Zap2it. “It’s all very much based in reality, so if you get a piece of music it’s in a gig context, or it’s an open mic night at a bar.”

Palladio’s character, Gunnar, learned in the first episode that he has a musical connection with Clare Bowen’s Scarlet. While their relationship is innocent so far, Bowen says there’s potential for more. “They’re kindred spirits,” Bowen tells Zap2it. “Scarlet is a poet and a closet songwriter, I guess. They discover that they can write music together. You can’t do that with everybody, so there’s a really special relationship there — and there’s a little spark also. Anything can happen!”

Check out the video below for more of Palladio and Bowen’s thoughts on the series, including the joy of actually filming in Nashville and where they fall in the Team Rayna/Team Juliette debate.

‘Nashville’ stars Clare Bowen, Sam Palladio are fresh faces from outside US.

LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Two of the stars of the TV drama series “Nashville” were cast to play country singers, and neither is from this country. Clare Bowen made her way to “Nashville” via Australia, with her first stop in Los Angeles. “I came over for pilot season from Australia and got this wonderful script and said, “Please, can I go in for Scarlett? I just love her,” said Bowen. Actor Sam Palladio started his audition process in England. “My casting process was a crazy one of sending myself taped auditions from London from a little flat. I’d never been to the states. They liked what I did. I sent them some things of me playing and singing my guitar,” said Palladio.

“Nashville” is shot on location in the country music capital. “I think we’re portraying it in a really good light, and I think you get the real dynamics of the heart and warmth of the people,” said Palladio. “You couldn’t capture that magic in L.A. on a sound stage. It really does need to be filmed there.” After last week’s debut, their duet went to No. 5 on the iTunes country chart.
