Kelsea Ballerini, Thomas Rhett to Appear on ‘Nashville’
Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett are the latest country stars to make a cameo on ABC’s Nashville. The television drama, which takes place in Music City, adds Ballerini, Rhett and pop singer Kesha to the storyline this season.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that each artist will play themselves on the show and will make their appearance in one-episode cameos separately. Nashville has featured several country stars in the past, including Brad Paisley, Kellie Pickler, Florida Georgia Line, Vince Gill and Sara Evans, among others.
It was also announced this week that Nashville will take the show on the road this spring. The concert tour across the U.S. will feature cast members Clare Bowen, Chris Carmack and Charles Esten performing original music, as well as songs from the series. Will Chase, Jonathan Jackson and Aubrey Peeples join the tour in select cities.
The Nashville in Concert Tour will also make its first international run in the United Kingdom with Bowen, Carmack, Esten and Sam Palladio performing.
“It is truly extraordinary how demand has grown over these past three years,” says Steve Buchanan, President, Opry Entertainment, in a press release. “We have added several new major markets this year so that we can reach as many of our dedicated Nashville fans as possible all across America. Audiences have been consistently blown away by the performing and songwriting talent of our cast.”
Nashville returns on Wednesday (March 16) at 10PM ET on ABC.
