Ilse DeLange, frontwoman of The Common Linnets, has shared a video of her debut in the American series Nahville.
Ilse DeLange plays the role of Ilse de Witt, a coach in a talent show. The Dutch singer is very proud of her first major acting venture, no less in a popular show such as Nashville on CMT, in the United States.
She shared a video of her debut on Facebook:
It’s 4.30 am here in Nashville… so, proper Jetlag time to be awake:) just saw this post of Nashville on CMT and wanted to share it…. it is still kind of surreal that I’m a part of this great show. A show that’s about the music scene in Nashville, the place where my career started all these years ago. It’s a full circle kinda thing for me… feeling very thankful that I get to live this dream. Always still feeling like I’m at the beginning of new adventures is a great way to live. Thank you Callie Khouri for this amazing opportunity.
This isn't what Deacon wanted… but she sounds AMAZING.
