The music has always been my favourite thing about Nashville so I was so happy to be able to get tickets for when Chris Carmack, Sam Palladio, Clare Bowen and Charles Esten came to town. I mean who would have thought that a group of country singers are so popular in London that they had to add two extra shows!!
Anyway, what a talented group of people! They act, play multiple instruments, song-write and have wonderful singing voiced to boot.
The concert started out with each of them coming on stage individually to do a song and then introduce the following act. Then they all came on individually again to do a few songs each – a combination of songs from the show, original material and covers.
If I’m going to be honest, I was a little disappointed with the song selection. I really wanted Clare to do Black Roses, not to mention more Scarlett/Gunnar songs and even some of the upbeat songs from The (Triple) Exes which the whole team could have done.
However, what we were given was still exquisitely performed. Needless to say Clare’s song that was written for her about her brother’s cancer completely stole the show. It was absolutely amazing and so full of emotion. I looked on iTunes as soon as I got home to see if I could buy it but unfortunately it’s not out there to buy.
Whatever songs they chose to do, I definitely think we could have done with more than two songs with the four of them on stage together but it was enjoyable all the same.
