Last week it was announced that the "Nashville in Concert" tour will also stage its first-ever international run in the United Kingdom with Clare Bowen, Chris Carmack, Charles Esten and Sam Palladio performing.
"It is truly extraordinary how demand has grown over these past three years," said Steve Buchanan, president, Opry Entertainment. "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."
"It's so great to see the cast have an opportunity to take their show on the road again," said Russell Ziecker, executive vice president, TV Music, Lionsgate. "The spirit and energy they bring to the stage is infectious. They've all become country music evangelists and ambassadors of Nashville, both the show and the city. It continues to amaze me how many ways life imitates art imitates life on this show and with this cast."
Also announced today is the May 13 soundtrack release of "The Music of Nashville, Season 4, Volume 2" (Big Machine Records.) Receiving much praise from critics and fans alike, the music from Nashville has amassed over five million track sales since the show's inception.
