    Not at all surprising, but definitely good news. Loving what they’ve been doing with all three so far.

      Heard about this from his twitter feed about a month ago, excited!! Kudos to the little girls as well, they are amazing. Can we just get rid of Tandy??

  2. Robin says:

    Yay for Lennon and Maisy Stella – those two are super talented!!

  3. Claudia says:

    Those kids are really good singers, and the little one is surprisingly a believable child actress. Carmack’s promotion was happening since the role was written. Can’t wait for more Nashville!

  4. Diane says:

    Yay for Lennon & Maisy! Maisy is a great little actress, too.

  5. Michelle says:

    Let’s hope they do the Will storyline justice. It could be awesome if done right.

  6. Elm says:

    Why have I not started watching this show yet?!

  7. EJ says:

    Great news. I like both girls but the younger one is absolutely wonderful.

  8. A.D. says:

    The daughters are 2 of the worst actors ever! If any parts of any show ever needed a recast it’s these two non-talents. There are SO many good child actors out there and these 2 don’t even come close.

  9. TL says:

    Nice. The Will character is one of the more interesting ones on the show. Smart decision.

  10. Aprilcot says:

    Love Lennon and Maisy! Their rendition of “Ho Hey” was one of if not *the* musical standout of the season.

  11. carlycane says:

    Will Kimberly Williams Paisley be a regular? She has been promoted earlier in the season and I don’t know if it’s going to stick for season 2. Im curious.

  12. cjeffery7 says:

    lennon and maisy! woohoo!

  13. Nicole says:

    Awesome news about Chris Carmack (and the two girls too). By the end of the season I found Will to be one of the more compelling characters and I think it could be a really interesting storyline that could go in a few different directions.

  14. Juan says:

    Great I loved the will story so far. Also the two girls are very talented and happy they are gonna be regulars. Can’t wait for nashville

  15. Lauren says:

    So happy to hear this!!! Love Will’s character and his storyline is great. Love the girls too but I figured they’d be sticking around.

  16. the other shoe says:

    Expensive cast already, I’m sure. I bet this means it will be trimmed some.

  17. Lisa says:

    Love Lennon and Maisy. They could go so many directions with their story. I would like to see Rayna sign them to her label.

  18. Ellen says:

    Bad news on the Will character. The gay storyline is interesting but something about him strikes me as sleazy. Don’t like the character. Was hoping they would get rid of him.

  19. Betty Lemmon says:

    Deacon and Rayna’s love story is the greatest of all times. This show has the best music and actually a plot. Love it….Cant wait for it to start again I will be glued to the TV
