Elton John to Appear on Nashville

Nashville better turn on those sad songs, because Sir Elton John is about to sit in.

The über-popular British singer/songwriter will appear in the May 18 episode, per The Hollywood Reporter. John, who will play himself, will perform in a scene with Sam Palladio’s Gunnar.

John is just the latest big-name act to show up in the ABC drama’s fictional Music City: Kesha, Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett are set to guest-star later this season, and the roster of acts who’ve appeared on the ABC drama since its start include Kelly Clarkson, Brad Paisley, Florida Georgia Line and Sara Evans.

Wonderful Crazy Night, John’s latest album, was produced by former Nashville executive music producer T-Bone Burnett (who is husband of Nashville creator Callie Khouri).
