Actor Jonathan Jackson Talks New Music, 'Nashville,' and Loyal Fans From His Soap Opera Days

It’s a case of art imitating life. Jonathan Jackson plays singer and songwriter Avery Barkley on the hit ABC show “Nashville.” In real life, he’s been making music since he was just a kid. Fusion Live caught up with Jackson recently to talk all about his career as a musician and his band Enation’s new single, “Everything Is Possible.”

Fans of the ABC soap opera “General Hospital” know Jackson as Lucky Spencer–a role which netted the actor five Emmy awards.

“‘General Hospital’ fans are just incredible. They are so supportive and loyal,” Jackson said. “We’ve had so many people follow my career not only from the show but to the music and become big fans of the music and of ‘Nashville,’ and you know ‘Nashville’ is ABC and that’s been a home for me for so many years. So I think a lot of people have been able to cross over to the music and to ‘Nashville.'”
