Hayden Panettiere may be known for her acting, but she’s experiencing a lot of musical firsts thanks to her role as Juliet Barnes on the hit ABC show, “Nashville.” On the show, she sings her own music…both live and on-screen.
This has been kind of the in between because I get to go out there during scenes with a crowd full of people and pretend like I’m performing onstage, and I’m actually performing a live show,” she continued. “It’s one thing when you put yourself out there (as a solo artist), it’s another thing when you’re playing a character. … Beyonce has her alter ego (Sasha Fierce), and people create these alter egos because it seems like a little bit more protection when you put yourself out there for all to see.”
Big Machine has released the “Nashville” soundtrack, giving the actors an opportunity at a music career…and a chance to hear themselves on the radio.
I just bugged out,” Hayden said. “I couldn’t believe it. I was trying to take pictures at the same time. But it’s surreal. … There are no words to describe how special and exciting that moment is. And nerve-wracking, too, very nerve-wracking.”
Hayden and Connie Britton have both earned Golden Globe Nominations for their roles on “Nashville.” You can read more here.
