The cast of ABC's Nashville has already been on two tours but hasn't come to Florida. And Charles "Chip" Esten, who plays the Deacon Claybourne, wanted to make sure the country singers made time this go around for the Sunshine State.

"I love Florida. My wife and I actually honeymooned in Longboat Key. That's near you guys, right?" he said in a phone interview.

It is, in fact, about 55 miles from Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, where Esten and fellow Nashville actors Clare Bowen (Scarlett O'Connor), Chris Carmack (Will Lexington) and Aubrey Peeples (Layla Grant) perform on Thursday. Click here for details.
