The Black Keys guitarist Dan Auerbach is set to play himself on ABC's Nashville on Wednesday night. He'll join country stars Kip Moore, Vince Gill and Pam Tillis in the episode, titled “Dear Brother,” which features the Nashville-based musicians hanging out at a surprise birthday party for Deacon, played by actor Charles Esten, at The Bluebird Café.
Auerbach’s appearance, which can be viewed at RollingStone.com, shows the guitarist offering some kind words to actress Connie Britton’s character Rayna, who is going through a tough divorce.
This isn’t the first time that Auerbach has appeared on a TV show to do something other than play or talk about music. Last year, he and Keys drummer Patrick Carney appeared on an episode of celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain's Travel Channel show, No Reservations. In addition, the Keys briefly appeared as guys with long ponytails in an episode of Comedy Central’s Workaholics.
Nashville airs Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
