A “Nashville” Musical is Officially Happening

Nashville wrapped up last year after six amazing season and it seems we’ll be getting more of it as a Country-themed Broadway musical, based on the hit series, is officially in development.

The Golden Globe-nominated series starring Hayden Panettiere and Connie Britton followed the lives and tragedies of rising and fading country music stars in Nashville, Tennessee. The hit show was created by Callie Khouri and premiered on ABC in 2012 but moved to CMT in 2016 where it stayed for two years.

Producer Scott Delman, who has 10 Tony nods under his belt, promised an exciting show, which will deliver Broadway’s first score of true contemporary country music.

Nashville, with its complex, relatable characters, and sweeping emotional gestures, has all of the narrative elements that I look for in great theatrical source material. From that rich DNA, we will be building an original story with entirely original music, written by major Nashville and Broadway songwriters,” stated Delman.
