During its years on ABC, the TV show Nashville has become one of our can't-miss guilty pleasures. Come on, admit it: It's one of yours too.

The best thing about it, of course, is the music. So, it was smart of the show's producers to send its cast members out on tour. And now, they're bringing their act to North Texas.

Nashville in Concert

The Nashville road show will stage a concert April 23 at the Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie. It's about time Verizon had a show we'd want to see. As you know, the WinStar World Casino and Resort in Thackerville, Okla., has been luring acts away from both Verizon and the Winspear Opera House, as I wrote about in this front-page story.

Paul Simon figured out a way to play both WinStar and the Winspear, creating a Win-Win for everybody. But we digress.

The Nashville touring caravan features cast members Clare Bowen (Scarlett O'Connor), Chris Carmack (Will Lexington) and Charles Esten (Deacon Claybourne), with Will Chase (Luke Wheeler), Jonathan Jackson (Avery Barkley) and Aubrey Peeples (Layla Grant) joining the tour in select cities. The producers occasionally devote entire episodes to these live performances. One of our favorite moments came when Jonathan Jackson sang the knockout ballad, "How You Learn to Live Alone," co-written by Mary Gauthier and the great Gretchen Peters, whom we have written about often

If you watch 'Nashville' on Wednesday, keep an eye out for D-FW singer Allie Farris

The show Nashville returns Wednesday with the wedding of Rayna and Deacon, and you may catch a glimpse of Allie Farris, a Flower Mound Marcus grad who played and sang during the filming of the wedding scenes.

The Nashville concert played a bunch of sold-out dates during 2014 and 2015, and on May 13, the show will release its soundtrack recording, The Music of Nashville, Season 4, Volume 2. Don't know about you, but I am especially looking forward to hearing Clare Bowen in concert. She's from Australia. Here, I wrote about Bowen and actor Sam Palladio, who plays Gunnar Scott -- Palladio is a Brit -- and how they have no trouble at all mastering Southern American accents
