Broadway star Laura Benanti, who sang on TV screens during NBC’s “The Sound of Music Live” and co-starred alongside Matthew Perry in the gone-but-not-forgotten “Go On,” is moving to “Nashville” for a juicy Season 3 guest arc on the ABC soap.
Accomplished singer Benanti will play up-and-coming country artist Sadie Stone, according to Deadline. Sadie will befriend Connie Britton’s Rayna James in a multi-episode arc.
Benanti and Britton are excited to work together, they both revealed on Twitter Wednesday (July 30) when the news broke.
