In honor of the show’s season six premiere, here’s a look at 10 behind the scenes secrets on our favorite show, Nashville!
10. Fake Accents
The majority of the cast has to fake their southern accents, but the two who have to try the hardest are Gunner Scott and Scarlett O’Connor! Gunner Scott is played by British actor Sam Palladio while Scarlett O’Connor is portrayed by Australian actress, Clare Bowen.
9. Tight Knit Cast
The cast of Nashville is amazing on and off screen. The actors and actress who’ve come together to fulfill the characters we see on television come from a variety of backgrounds, from former musicians to comedians, soap opera actors to veteran actors to rookies — and they are all one tight knit family! Chip Esten said in an interview that the best part about their show is that when the show is over they continue to perform together on their international music tour and have jam sessions together to collaborate on writing new songs. When the show goes to air on Wednesday nights, Sam Palladio (Gunner Scott) and Chris Carmack (Will Lexington) get together to tweet about the show. Their hangouts usually involve a bit of bourbon, music writing and jamming out on their guitars. Sam and Chris call these little sessions “beats and tweets.” Keep an eye out for them next time the show is on!
