Chris Carmack To Release Debut EP on Dec. 11


Fans of Nashville are familiar with Chris Carmack for his portrayal as Will Lexington on the ABC drama. Now, Carmack is prepping to share his own music with the world.

His debut EP, Pieces of You, is set for release on Dec. 11. The multi-talented singer, songwriter, musician and actor’s project was produced by Phoenix Mendoza and Ben Fowler. Pieces of You includes five songs penned solely by Carmack.

Carmack has released two songs from the project, including the title track and “Being Alone.” He has also taken part in several events in Music City the past few months, including the Opry’s 90th Birthday Bash, the 2015 CMA Music Festival, and the CMA Songwriter Series, in a songwriters round that featured his male costars Will Chase (Luke Wheeler), Charles Esten (Deacon Clayborne), Jonathan Jackson (Avery Barkley), and Sam Palladio (Gunnar Scott), performing alongside Nashville guest star Mark Collie (Frankie), musician Colin Linden, and Nashville songwriters Trent DabbsChris Gelbuda, Travis Meadows, and Jonathan Singleton.

A native of Washington D.C., Carmack studied at NYU’s Tisch Adler Conservatory before heading out to Los Angeles where he helped launch the theatrical production of The Day I Stood Still. Carmack would spend his off-time practicing guitar, which would later come in handy for his role on Nashville. His performance in The Day I Stood Still attracted the attention of producers from the drama The O.C., who cast him as “Luke Ward” in the series in 2003.

After completing his work on the show, Carmack returned to the stage in NY at the Roundabout Theatre Company, where he took on the role of “Sloane” in Entertaining Mr. Sloane, alongside Alec Baldwin and Jan Maxwell. He also performed in London, playing John Buchanan in Tennessee Williams’ Summer and Smoke.
