NASHVILLE CAFE Set for Deer Valley Resort's Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater Today

Five artists - singer-songwriters whose performances have graced the Grand Ole Opry and the top of the country charts - will take to the stage for "Nashville Café" today, August 23. On tap for the evening are actor-musicians: Clare Bowen; Chris Carmack; Charles Esten; and sisters Lennon and Maisy Stella. Concert starts at 7 p.m. (gates open at 5:30 p.m.) at Deer Valley Resort's Snow Park Outdoor Amphitheater. Tickets available online at bigstarsbrightnightsconcerts.org or 435-655-3114.

"These performers are terrific musicians, who also happen to act," says PCI executive director Teri Orr.

Clare Bowen's "breathtaking" (The Daily Beast) duet with co-star Sam Palladio set the spellbinding tone for the pilot episode of Nashville. The Australian actress - who has appeared in several of her home country's iconic television dramas, including Home and Away, All Saints, The Cut, and Chandon Pic­tures as well as Jared Moshe's directorial debut Dead Man's Burden - is currently working on her debut solo album with legendary songwriter and music producer, T-Bone Burnett. Her tune "Black Roses" has climbed the charts and she's been playing select tour dates this summer; recently headlining the 2014 "Nashville In Concert" tour with sold-out shows in New York, Washington DC, Chicago and Philadelphia.

Chris Carmack, whose break-out role in The O.C. a decade ago made him an instant television star, has since proven his singing chops on-screen and on-stage in his new role as country singer/a guy who plays a country singer. As a CMT.com reviewer puts it, "Nobody told me Chris Carmack would be even better as a concert performer than he is as his character Will Lexington on Nashville." Now known for hits, such as "What If I was Willing" (a tune debuted by his character Will), Carmack continues to country rock his way across that actor-musician divide.
