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.”
