“Nashville’s” Season 2 cast just got a little bigger.
Relative newcomer Chaley Rose just landed a role on the ABC Southern soap, the network announced on Tuesday (July 23) via Twitter.
She will play Zoey, an old childhood friend of Scarlett’s (Clare Bowen) who also has aspirations of a career in country music (of course). Will Zoey try to achieve success on her own, or will she come to Scarlett for help, thanks to her recent success joining Rayna James’ (Connie Britton) label?
Rose has previously been on an episode of “Anger Management” and can be seen in the upcoming movie, “36 Saints.”
This latest bit of casting news comes hot on the announcement that Chris Carmack and Lennon and Maisy Stella were promoted to series regulars for Season 2. Carmack plays Gunnar’s (Sam Palladio) closeted cowboy friend who hides his sexuality in order to find success in the country music biz. Lennon and Maisy play Rayna’s two daughters, fathered by two different men. It was also previously announced that executive music producer T. Bone Burnett will not be returning for Season 2 due to unavoidable scheduling conflicts.
“Nashville” returns in the fall on ABC.
