After filming an upcoming ABC concert special, Nashville: On the Record, at the Ryman Auditorium, a few of the show’s stars are taking their act on the road. Clare Bowen, Charles Esten, Jonathan Jackson, Sam Palladio and Chris Carmack will perform a three-show tour starting April 25th in Chicago.
Jonathan Jackson, who plays Avery, says these concerts are an extension of the kind of concerts they’ve been performing in Music City. He explains, “We’ve been talking about it for awhile about how fun it would be to go on the road and connect with people in that way.”
Preparing for a concert tour isn’t always easy for the busy TV stars, though.
Jonathan adds, “We’re just gonna get down to preparing for the shows pretty soon. We’re still filming right now, but it’s gonna be a blast.”
The Nashville tour will hit Washington, D.C. on May 4 and New York City on May 6.
Nashville returns next Wednesday night at 10 ET on ABC.
