Big Machine Records to Release ‘Music of Nashville’ Soundtrack
If you can't get enough of the music on ABC's 'Nashville,' you're in luck. Powerhouse country label Big Machine Records -- home of Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw -- will release an 11-song soundtrack for the popular new drama on Dec. 11.
Ever since the pilot aired, fans have been excited about the commitment to making the performance side of 'Nashville; as realistic as possible. The drama's executives teamed up with Big Machine Records and award-winning producers like T Bone Burnett to use original music in their episodes. The twist? There are no overdubs on the show. When cast members perform, they are actually singing the songs.
The 'Nashville' soundtrack will feature songs by stars Connie Britton, Hayden Panettiere, Charles Esten, Jonathan Jackson, Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio.
In conjunction with ABC Music, BMR has already released the song 'Telescope,' which Panettiere sang in an early 'Nashville' episode. The song was sent to country radio just three weeks ago and it has since climbed to into the Top 40, with nearly 50,000 already in total sales.
The 'Music of Nashville' soundtrack could put other cast members on the charts, too. Those actors and actresses are getting pretty darn good at 'acting' like country singers!
