Known for playing tough guys on shows like Justified and 24, Williamson will appear on four episodes of ABC’s Nashville as a “brilliant” artist named Terry, our sister site Deadline reports. But there’s a twist: Terry apparently experienced a personal tragedy some time ago, which has left him to wander the streets of Nashville; now, it’s redemption time.

Curious about Williamson’s chops? Check out the “I Can Dream About You” music video below, for which Williamson — and the rest of the Sorels, a fictional doo-wop group from the 1984 movie Streets of Fire — provided the background vocals:

    Im a fan his acting ability and have no doubt i will enjoy his singing. Hopefully his character’s story is more interesting than some of the other newcomer singers

    Hope this doesn’t preclude a return in Justified’s final season. Always a fan.

  3. Shira says:

    Intersting casting and th storyline looks promising. Just one reservation, since Nashville has the tendency to fall in love with gust stars and turn them into regulars and since the show REALLY doesnt need another regular, if this character Terry will prove itself lets make a trade off deal: Terry for Luke.

    I don’t think any of the vocals on the video are from the guys in the video. The lead singers voice is not the one in the video for sure, it’s Dan Hartman’s voice (he wrote the song). http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Can_Dream_About_You

    Still, I’m very excited to see him on the show!
