Falling Skies‘ alum Jessy Schram has joined the cast of ABC’s country music drama Nashville in a recurring role. She will play Cash Gray, a singer songwriter who is just starting to come into her own, having co-written a few songs with Kacey Musgraves. I hear she is slated to do at least eight episodes.

Nashville is currently in production on its fourth season, filming around star Hayden Panettiere, who is getting treatment for postpartum depression. The series, from Lionsgate TV and ABC Studios, follows the lives of a group of recording artists in the cutthroat music industry. Connie Britton stars on the music drama, which has attracted a slew of celebrity guest appearances since it premiered in 2012 including Christina Aguilera, Carrie Underwood, Kelly Clarkson, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, Wyclef Jean, Robin Roberts and Conan O’Brien.

Schram, repped by Sanders Armstrong Caserta, CESD and Jackoway Tyerman, was on ABC’s radar from her arc as Cinderella on Once Upon a Time. She also recurred on Mad Men.
