ABC promotes 3 from Nashville cast to regulars, Chris Carmack and the Stellas

 
Fans of ABC’s ‘Nashville’ have three more reasons to be excited about the big return of the series. Chris Carmack and both Maisy Stella and Lennon Stella will now be regular cast-members on the show.
 
Although the two sisters have been apart of the show since the pilot, Chris Carmack came on much later. The girls will naturally come back as Rayna’s children (played by Connie Britton). The two girls were a perfect fit form the start of production, having musical parents in Canada, the sisters are even growing a following on YouTube and elsewhere for their own musical talents. The duo even have their own single ‘Telescope’. That song was used in the season one, episode three.
 
As for Carmack, he aboard for the last six episodes, but his closeted gay persona, mixed with his genuine country demeanor seemed to be a big hit with viewers. We reported when “Nashville” was renewed last May, though there was little doubt that ABC would bring it back. The show really started to hit it’s stride for the final few episodes. In the end it proved to be good enough for a second season and the network seemed to be ok with a 1.9 (18-49 demo) for the season finale. You can expect to see everyone’s return when the show comes back.
