Following the winter finale of “Nashville” on Wednesday, Dec. 12, ABC aired the promo for episode 11, “I’ll Keep Climbing” which you can see in the accompanying YouTube video, posted Dec. 11. One of the big spoilers involves a guest appearance by Kelly Clarkson,
Clarkson, the ‘Original American Idol’ winner, will be playing herself in a segment about wanting to record one of the songs written by Scarlett and Gunnar. Ina scene with the two of them working with Clarkson, Scarlett says “I thought I could make it work but I can’t.” and walks out of the session. Not cool, Scarlett.
The “Up To the Mountain” singer will cover of Mazzy Star’s “Fade into You” that was done last season on the show. Gunnar Scott and Scarlett O’Connor will accompany her.
Kelly Clarkson will be an interesting plot device for the story arc about Scarlett and Gunnar’s broken relationship. Scarlett is still angry because he’s been seeing her lifelong best friend Zoe and the two of them kept it hidden from her.
It’s not likely that Clarkson’s will be a recurring role but it is nice to see some of Nashville’s big names getting in on the action.
