The first episode of the next season of Nashville will include live musical performances from two of the main characters.

Charles Esten and Chris Carmack, who play Deacon and Will on the show, will perform in the Bluebird Cafe in the opening episode of the season, with the performances broadcast live on September 24 in America, according to Entertainment Tonight.

The stars will perform twice, first for East Coast viewers, and later for West Coast viewers.

Show creator Callie Khouri previously told Radio Times: "We want people to know what it's really like. The live music here is such a huge presence in our show that we thought maybe we could find a way to share with the world what that feels like for real."

She added: "Just in case people ever wondered, 'Are these people really singing? Are they being fixed in a studio afterwards?' Just to give people the chance to hear how good everybody really is."

A premiere date for Nashville season three on More4 is yet to be announced.
