Chris Carmack plays the hunk gay country singer Will Lexington on ABC’s “Nashville.” According to The Tennessean on Dec. 27, Carmack recently promised fans could expect "Sex, scandal, rock and roll — I mean country” in upcoming episodes of the show.
The interview was done prior to the airing of the midseason finale where Carmack’s character stepped in front of an oncoming train in the final moments of the show. Fans have been anxious to learn the fate of the handsome cowboy. Naturally, the actor was unable to share Will’s fate so we will have to wait until Jan. 15 when “Nashville” returns to find out if Will dodged the train or not.
Carmack said the show has been great for creating other opportunities for its cast members. Some have performed at the “Grand Ole Opry” and have recorded songs for the series’ soundtrack CDs. Jonathon Jackson, the actor who portrays Avery Barkley landed a record deal.
The actor also says fans sometimes have trouble distinguishing if he’s an actor or a singer or both. Because of the show he appears on, he gets to film in Nashville at some of the music industry’s most famous venues. When fans run into him at one of these places, they are a little thrown as to whether he’s there acting or performing as a country music singer. He doesn’t mind the confusion – the show is good at blurring the lines between fantasy and reality.
“Nashville” airs 9 p.m. Wednesdays on ABC and will return on Jan. 15. Until then, check back often for news, updates and spoilers as they become available.
