The former lead star of hit show Nashville sits down with James Gilmore before her sold out show at London's Royal Festival Hall
When you look at the rise of country music culture globally, you can easily give credit to Clare Bowen and her team on the hit show ‘Nashville’ for enabling country artists to sell out venues in most cities around the world.
On her trip to London, UK, the former lead star of the hit show experienced this for herself, as she sold out the 3,000-capacity Royal Festival Hall with her solo headline show… a feat previously only within reach of acts who would be stadium selling performers in the US.
She’s not the only one feeling the benefit of her own successes - Thomas Rhett is on course to sell out the 5,000-capacity Eventim Apollo when he arrives in London this November, and Kacey Musgraves is due to sell out the 12,500-capacity Wembley Arena too.

Alec Feldman gives you a handy guide to British pop culture for the mid-to-late noughties.
Alec Feldman has an excellent knowledge of British popular culture from the mid-to-late-noughties. In fact, he references it fairly often on air. So just in case his obscure references sometimes need explaining, he’s put together some handy guides to British pop culture from that era.
It's amazing that we've made it three episodes without Alec mentioning Craig David, but we got there eventually.
In Episode Four, he looks at the Rise and Fall (featuring Sting), and rise again, of one of his favourite human beings.
It won’t take you 7 Days to listen to – it’s under four minutes long. So if you’re thinking, “can you Fill Me In”, the answer is yes! And if you miss anything you can just Re-Rewind (When the Crowd Say Bo Selecta) it and listen again from the beginning.
