'Nashville' Promotes Three Cast Members to Full Time THR

ABC's "Nashville" promoted three actors to series regulars for the drama's second season, The Hollywood Reporter's Live Feed reports.

Sisters Lennon and Maisy Stella and "The O.C." actor Chris Carmack have been upped to full time.

The Stella sisters have appeared on the show since the pilot, cast as daughters to Connie Britton's character, the story notes. The sisters gained a following through their YouTube videos, which have millions of views, and their "Nashville" songs are among the show's most popular tracks on iTunes, the piece notes.

Carmack joined the show during the last six episodes of the drama's first season, playing Will, a friend of Scarlett's. His character puts on a womanizing personality to hide the fact that he's gay, which he worries will hamper his career in country music, the story notes.
