Press: Telegraph – 10 Country Songs That Will Make You Cry

Sam and Clare were mentioned in the recent Telegraph with an article entitled “10 Country Songs That Will Make You Cry” where I Will Fall made the list!

From the end of a relationship to the end of childhood, the stars of country music are masters at the art of making songs out of everyday sadness.

Clare Bowen & Sam Palladio – I Will Fall

The Channel 4 series Nashville may be fictional, but it comes with some serious country music chops: T-Bone Burnett oversaw the music on its first series, in which this song appeared. It was recorded by the two actors who play Scarlett O’Connor and Gunnar Scott, and written by Tyler James and Kate York, who has written multiple tracks for the show.

Upcoming Performance: 8/23 NASHVILLE CAFE Set for Deer Valley Resort’s Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater

Five artists – singer-songwriters whose performances have graced the Grand Ole Opry and the top of the country charts – will take to the stage for “Nashville Café” on August 23. On tap for the evening are actor-musicians: Clare Bowen; Chris Carmack; Charles Esten; and sisters Lennon and Maisy Stella. Concert starts at 7 p.m. (gates open at 5:30 p.m.) at Deer Valley Resort’s Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater. Tickets available online at or 435-655-3114.

“These performers are terrific musicians, who also happen to act,” says PCI executive director Teri Orr.

Clare Bowen’s “breathtaking” (The Daily Beast) duet with co-star Sam Palladio set the spellbinding tone for the pilot episode of Nashville. The Australian actress – who has appeared in several of her home country’s iconic television dramas, including Home and Away, All Saints, The Cut, and Chandon Pic­tures as well as Jared Moshe’s directorial debut Dead Man’s Burden – is currently working on her debut solo album with legendary songwriter and music producer, T-Bone Burnett. Her tune “Black Roses” has climbed the charts and she’s been playing select tour dates this summer; recently headlining the 2014 “Nashville In Concert” tour with sold-out shows in New York, Washington DC, Chicago and Philadelphia.

Chris Carmack, whose break-out role in The O.C. a decade ago made him an instant television star, has since proven his singing chops on-screen and on-stage in his new role as country singer/a guy who plays a country singer. As a reviewer puts it, “Nobody told me Chris Carmack would be even better as a concert performer than he is as his character Will Lexington on Nashville.” Now known for hits, such as “What If I was Willing” (a tune debuted by his character Will), Carmack continues to country rock his way across that actor-musician divide.

Charles “Chip” Esten, whose Nashville character Deacon consistently delivers impressive country tunes such as “Keep Coming Back,” is no stranger to the live performance. He made his theatrical debut in London when he portrayed Buddy Holly in the hit musical Buddy. His television credits include the British show Whose Line is It Anyway? (as well as the American version). He’s also landed recurring roles on Big Love, Enlightened, The Office and ER. The deep-voiced, actor/singer-songwriter recently headlined a summer concert tour in addition to hitting the stage alongside his television co-stars.

Lennon and Maisy Stella, age 14 and 10, are real life sisters who also happen to play sisters on TV. Since they landed roles on Nashville – and went viral with 50 million viewers tuning into their rendition of “Call Your Girlfriend” by Robyn – folks have, in the words of the Huffington Post, been “smitten.” Their pint-sized version of “Ho Hey” by The Lumineers has risen to the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and they sweetly stole the show at the CMA awards with the Taylor Swift cover “You Belong with Me,” before presenting Ms. Swift with the CMA Pinnacle award.

4/20 Dead Man’s Burden Screening in Nashville!

Any fans in the Nashville area?!? Clare’s new western film DEAD MAN’S BURDEN will be playing this Saturday at 8 PM at the Nashville Film Festival. 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:

‘Nashville’ Stars Croon Through ‘Ring of Fire’ and ‘Changing Ground’

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
