When Nashville fans of ABC's sitcom "Hope and Faith" tune in to the November 14 episode, they will see and hear two Nashville music personalities, and one of them will be Kim Patton-Johnston, ASCAPs Sony/ATV songwriter and Trevecca student.
Kim was invited to be the featured artist in a club scene of upcoming episode that has a country music flavor after producers heard her CD "My Name is Not Susan." She flew to New York City on Wednesday, October 8, and spent two twelve-hour days on the set. rehearsing one day and taping in front of a live audience on the second day.
Kim plays herself, a musician/writer, and during the segment which takes place in a Texas bar, three of Kim's songs can be heard in the background. Appearing in the same episode is Clint Black who plays "Randy," Hope's ex-boyfriend from high school. His music is also part of the episode.
While the experience was enjoyable, Kim reports that she will stick to her career in music. She reports, "The taping day ended at 3 A.M., and it is harder to learn one line of script than it is to sing three songs."
The segment will broadcast November 14 on ABC. In Nashville the show appears on Ch-2, WKRN, on Friday nights at 8 P.M.
