Clare Bowen, songwriter-artist and star of the hit television series Nashville, stopped by the ASCAP offices on Music Row with her fiancé, songwriter Brandon Robert Young, to join the performance rights organization as a songwriter member. Bowen is currently in the studio, writing and recording with an A-list Nashville producer for her debut solo album.

On joining ASCAP, she said,

“I’m so happy to be a part of the ASCAP family. I’ve been singing as Scarlett O’Connor for the past four years, so to be embarking on the journey of creating my debut album, and recording songs I’ve penned for the first time ever, I’m very grateful to have the good people of ASCAP looking out for me as an artist and a writer. Their effort toward ensuring songwriters are protected is both admirable and comforting. And they’re a pretty good hang too.”

Earlier this week (7/13), the Emmy-nominated, groundbreaking online music series Skyville Live saluted the magic of Music City with an unforgettable concert showcasing Nashville mainstays alongside fresh faces in town including Clare Bowen, Chris Carmack, Charles Esten, Lennon & Maisy, Mark Collie, JD Souther and Pam Tillis.

If you needed yet another reason to love this creative city, this impressive lineup offered just that. “I don’t know where there is better music in Nashville,” gushed Tillis. Simply oozing with talent, each artist commanded the stage with high-energy performances of their original music mixed with fan-favorite covers to the sheer delight of the adoring live audience.

Carmack stunned the packed house with an electric guitar-heavy tribute to his idol by serving up a jaw-dropping rendition of B.B. King’s classic “Sweet Little Angel” seen here (pw: video).

Another highlight of the stellar night included songwriting great Souther, as he made it hard not to sing-along to his iconic “Heartache Tonight,” first made famous by the Eagles.

Each incredible artist had a front row seat proudly supporting each other during their solo spots, yet they united for a sweet closing number performing the Beatles’ staple “With a Little Help from My Friends.”
