Last weekend’s NASHVILLE CAFE concert in Park City was an unforgettable night of Nashville musicianship and Hollywood star power.
Five stars of the critically acclaimed musical television series NASHVILLE performed last Saturday, August 23, 2014 in an unprecedented concert at Deer Valley Resort’s Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater. It was a unique, one-night-only show that has never played anywhere else.
Clare Bowen (Scarlett O’Connor), Chris Carmack (Will Lexington), Charles “Chip” Esten (Deacon Claybourne), Lennon Stella (Maddie Conrad), and Maisy Stella (Daphne Conrad)–all series regulars–took a break from filming in Nashville, Tennessee, for their visit to Utah.
The performers were all completely in their element, exhibiting showmanship and range that isn’t always able to be showcased on the NASHVILLE series. There is no doubt that these are not just actors who can sing–they are absolutely stellar musicians.
The show opened with the young Stella sisters, who delighted the audience with their sophisticated harmonies and acoustic arrangements of such differing songs as Jason Mraz’s “I Won’t Give Up” and “Till There Was You” from Meredith Willson’s THE MUSIC MAN.
Next was Carmack, who wowed with an entertaining set that began with “What If I Was Willing” from NASHVILLE and included an original song he performed at his friend’s recent wedding.
The best moments of the evening were when the performers sang songs from NASHVILLE that carried emotional connections to their characters. These included “Black Roses” by Bowen, “Sideshow” by Esten, “A Life That’s Good” by the Stellas, and “Is That Who I Am” by Carmack, in his first live performance of the moving song. NASHVILLE is consistently one of the best written and acted series on broadcast television, and these songs allowed the audience to catch a glimpse of the actors playing their roles from it, tugging a few heartstrings along the way.
The NASHVILLE stars seemed genuinely humbled by the reception they received, and the fans were clearly in awe of the talent displayed. The Park City Institute can’t be thanked enough for bringing such a rare, fulfilling experience to Utah.
The final installment in the St. Regis Big Stars, Bright Nights concert series at Deer Valley will be An Evening with Vince Gill and The Time Jumpers this Saturday, August 30, 2014. For more information about future events sponsored by the Park City Institute, call 435-655-3114 or visit ecclescenter.org.
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 bigstarsbrightnightsconcerts.org 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 CMT.com 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.

Clare and Sam performed today at the 2013 Hulu Upfront Event. Unfortunately a video wasn’t released from the event but I did find a few photos. Also, Nashville won Best New Show at TV and Film Review’s Annual TV Awards. I am not surprised, the show is fabulous. 🙂
The cast of Nashville were on The View today. I found a video of Clare and Sam’s performance. I will have screencaps and such hopefully tomorrow. Enjoy.
