Carmack will bring his original songs and fan-favorite hits from the TV series when he joins his cast mates on their just-announced US/UK tour — ABC’s “Nashville In Concert” this spring.
The Washington D.C. native, who grew up playing saxophone at a young age, turned his attention towards jazz band and theatre in high school. Upon graduating, he studied at NYU’s esteemed 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 the producers from the hit 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 New York 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.
