Somewhere in a box in the back of my closet is a white tank top with the words “Team LC" screen-printed in blue. Yes, I was Team Lauren Conrad all the way. Each week I met at a girlfriend’s house with other “The Hills” devotees, drank wine, ate snacks, lusted over Brody Jenner and screamed at the TV each time Heidi allowed Spencer back into her heart. The show ended in 2010 and ever since fans have been waiting for something that brings the same explosive drama, endearing cast members, scheming, and intriguing romance.
Enter CMT’s “Music City.”
Music City, is produced by executive producer Adam DiVello , the very same genius behind "The Hills" and "Laguna Beach." The show follows “a group of young adults entering the next chapter of their lives while chasing dreams of success, fame and romance in Nashville. Faced with real choices that carry real stakes for their careers, their relationships and their futures, they must navigate the rocky road on the journey of self-discovery.”
I had the opportunity to catch up with one of the stars of “Music City”, Bryant Lowry at the premiere. Bryant was kind enough to give me the scoop on his experience on "Music City."
What inspired you to be on a Reality Show?
“I think my life has always been fun and surreal at moments too. Not everybody gets to go on tour, not everybody gets to love what they do every day and even more, not everybody gets to absolutely love the city they do it in. It is incredible to be a part of the Nashville community. Being on a reality show seemed like a good fit for my personality."
What makes Nashville the perfect setting for a reality show?
“Nashville is a city of thousand dreams. You can go and get them if you really want them. Everyone in the cast is in a different part of their dream. For me, personally, I am beginning to fully realize my dream of being a full time musician. The cast is so great because some of us are still struggling, some of us have kind of made it, and I think that is the real Nashville."
Is there anything that surprised you while filming?
“You may have to watch and see! Yes. There were many things that changed while filming I didn’t expect. Some of it work related, some of it in relationships. There are surprises in every episode.”
What was the best part of filming?
“The cast. Getting to know everyone on a deeper level. And Nashville itself. Just being able to be in this incredible city is something really special. I love that every week we get to show the world the talented people and beautiful places Nashville is made up of.”
You can catch Bryant and the rest of the Music City cast every week on CMT, Thursdays 10/9C.
