REVIEW: Nashville – Sometimes Good Intentions Don’t Come Across So Well

nashville-abc_0

This seemed to be the theme of the second episode of the show that has created quite a buzz, ABC’s Nashville. The second episode began with Hayden Panettiere‘s character, Juliette Barnes, taking over the streets of Nashville, literally, as she filmed a music video that has Laura Bell Bundy “Giddy On Up” style choreography, mixed with the naughtiness of Christina Aguilera back in her “Dirrty” days. And, of course, stuck in the traffic caused by Juliette is Rayna Jaymes, former country starlet who is trying to breathe new life back into a career that her record label believes is dwindling. Naturally, seeing the young vixen create such a stir is a point of contention for Rayna, as she still tries to work through the abominable idea her record label suggested — that she open for a songstress that, age-wise, she could have given birth to herself.

Laura Bell Bundy Inspires Today’s Artistic Youth

dscf2956

Broadway sensation/Tony Award nominee turned country singer, Laura Bell Bundy, has always been interested in arts education. In fact, Laura, along with her former “Legally Blonde: The Musical” costar, Paul Canaan, runs two organizations geared toward youth and the arts – Take It From The Top and Kreative Kids.

Because of Laura’s passion for helping artistic youth follow their dreams and aspirations of pursuing careers in the arts, Laura happily dedicates her free time to serve as an inspiration to these children. Recently, she spent a night at The Orpheum Theatre High School Musical Theatre Awards as the host of the event. Laura explained, “I definitely am reminded of why I chose this as a craft. The youthful enthusiasm they have and the excitement and desire they have, it’s the same desire and excitement I had and have.”

Laura used the arts as a creative outlet to escape emotionally trying times in her personal life, and she holds the arts near and dear to her heart, hoping that today’s youth can find that same escape. At first, Laura turned to acting to help her through these hard times. “My acting work is always an outlet to what’s going on with me emotionally.”

After stints on “The Guiding Light,” “Wicked,” “Hairspray,” and a starring role in Broadway’s “Legally Blonde,” Laura focused on her love for country music. In 2010, Laura debuted her first album on a major label, “Achin’ and Shakin’,” which cleverly splits twelve tracks into two distinct parts – achin’ for the slow, heartache’y tunes; and shakin’ for the upbeat, country line-dancin’ jams. Laura is currently working on her sophomore album and will be performing at CMA Fest in Nashville on June 9.

We commend Laura on her hard work and dedication to the arts and look forward to her upcoming second album! Make sure to check out Take It From The Top and Kreative Kids to find out how you can help bring the arts to a child’s life.
