Brad Paisley Takes ‘Nashville’ to Tinsel Town
Brad Paisley is extending his creative talents to the small screen. The three-time Grammy winner has announced that he's partnering with an impressive group of Hollywood heavyweights to create and co-produce a new show for the CW Network.
Tentatively titled 'Nashville,' the drama will revolve around an aspiring female singer and a male songwriter whose career path is unstable. Brad says he will both contribute songs for the series, as well make guest appearances as himself on the show.
"I'm very excited to portray the country music world of my favorite town, Nashville , by showing the exciting life of musicians, songwriters and performers -- all very talented people." says Brad. "Look for some of your favorite country music stars to make their acting debuts on the show -- either by playing themselves or as a character in the script. Country songs are like great scripts already and it's going to be fun to see how some unfold on the show."
Brad will work alongside actor Zachary Quinto, ('Star Trek' and 'Heroes'), producer Mark Schawnn ('One Tree Hill'), and writers Neal Dodson and Matt Bomer, ('White Collar' and 'Chuck') to create the series.
'Nashville' is scheduled to begin airing next season.
