‘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.

  1. You wouldn’t know it from watching the show, but Nashville star Clare Bowen’s drawl is pure practice. Well she needs to speak up and tune down the drawl she is very hard to understand. Good actress just not a good drawl. Speak up so we can understand you! Love the show by the way!
