Before landing the iconic role of Scarlett O'Connor on the CMT/HULU TV series NASHVILLE, and launching her career as a singer/songwriter, Clare Bowen was growing up in rural Australia.
Bowen heard her first broadcast of the Grand Ole Opry on the wireless in her granddad's kitchen and soon after, her classical vocal coach paused one of their lessons to comment on the "country lilt" that had naturally crept into Bowen's voice. It would be another decade before she'd duet with heavyweights like Zac Brown and Vince Gill, recording songs with GRAMMY-winning producers like T Bone Burnett and Buddy Miller, but those early experiences were already pushing Bowen toward Nashville.
During her first year in America, she landed her role on NASHVILLE, playing a young poet turned songwriter, whose Folk and Americana songs were influenced by a challenging childhood. Nashville Cast lasted six seasons inspiring 22 soundtracks, including a Christmas album, which have collectively sold more than one million album units and over five million single-song downloads to date.
In 2018, Bowen, along with her singer/songwriter husband, Brandon Robert Young, nabbed a coveted spot on Sugarland's ‘Still the Same Tour’, the band’s first tour in over a decade. She then set out on a headline tour in support of the international release of her eponymous album with sold-out shows across the UK, Germany, and Australia. The album made its highly anticipated debut in the US and rest of the world in summer 2019.
