Singer, songwriter, actor, owner of a truly fantastic head of hair Sam Palladio is best known as Gunnar Scott in the addictive drama series Nashville, but the English native is also a talented musician with a love for the soothing sensitivity of James Taylor.
We talk about how he discovered JT and the album 'October Road' during his mother's illness, how James Taylor songs helped him land his Nashville role (and how he almost wound up in a Coen Brothers movie), his connection with members of Taylor's family, the reflective nature of Taylor's contemporary songs and how he sort of "ripped off" one of Taylor's most famous lines for a song he wrote about Ron Sexsmith.
