Nashville Adds Broadway Star as Openly Gay Country Singer

Nashville Season 3 Cast Kyle Massey

Nashville is bringing in a handsome Broadway star to play an openly gay country artist.

On a related note: Will Lexington, it might be time to update that Grindr profile.

Pippin‘s Kyle Dean Massey will join the ABC series in the recurring role of out-and-proud singer Kevin Bicks, our sister site Deadline reports.

Kevin is a successful country artist who happens to like guys, and his very existence deflates Will’s theory that the genre will never accept a gay superstar.

Massey’s other TV gigs include The Good WifeInside Amy Schumer and Hart of Dixie.
