Fans of the ABC hit show "Nashville" will probably be pretty happy about this.
Jonathan Jackson, who plays Avery Barkley on the show, has signed a real-life record deal with Loud & Proud Records, according to Billboard.com.
Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like Jonathan and his band Enation will be going in a country direction, although he says his time on "Nashville" will have an influence on things to come.
Enation's previously-released music, which includes tunes steeped in indie/alternative rock traditions, will certainly inform what Jackson accomplishes as a newly-signed musician, though his experiences on "Nashville" will have some bearing as well. "It's definitely a furthering exploration and development of what we've been doing in Enation," he says of the band's direction. "Being on 'Nashville' and working with some incredible people like T-Bone Burnett and Buddy Miller -- so many wonderful, incredible musicians that I've been blessed to play with and observe -- that has continued to shape the process of arranging music, writing music."
"Nashville" airs on ABC Wednesdays nights at 10/9 C.
