See ‘Nashville’ Star Clare Bowen ‘Stand-In’ for Caitlin Rose on ‘Waitin”

Tennessee starlet gets network TV seal of approval on October 9 episode

Caitlin Rose’s Essential new album The Stand-In, we wrote, “pulls at a Nashville believer’s heartstrings and evokes the city’s grand ole glory days.” Well, Nashville — the ABC television show, that is — has repaid the Tennessee talent with a tribute of her own. The latest episode of the country music drama featured a cover of “Waitin’,” one of the Own Side Now follow-up’s many sweetly sung stunners.

The homage came courtesy of fictional singer Scarlett O’Connor, played by actress Clare Bowen. As seen above, the minute-long clip plays up the sultry side of the soulful tune, much to the audience’s approval — just look at that heartfelt nod coming from Connie Britton’s Rayna Jaymes.
