Faces & Names: ‘Nashville’ will stay in Nashville
“Nashville” will be sticking around Nashville for its third season. The ABC drama had been in negotiations with the city for weeks, while considering a relocation to Texas or Georgia. All the while, there was uncertainty if the musical series would even be coming back for a third season.
Now, thanks to an incentive package totaling a combined $8 million, the production won’t have to pack up and relocate to another state.
According to a report, 90 percent of the production staff of “Nashville” was hired locally, with non-actors banking a combined payroll of $13 million for Season 2.
“Nashville” stars Connie Britton, , Clare Bowen, Charles Esten, Jonathan Jackson, Eric Close, Chris Carmack, Lennon Stella, Maisy Stella and Sam Palladio.
