Wishful Casting: Singing Soap Stars Who Would (Country) Rock a TV Adaptation of John Schlimm's Novel 'Twang'By Jamey Giddens on August 26, 2011
For the past few weeks I've been raving about country music publicist-turned-novelist John Schlimm's soapy, fiction debut Twang. The novel about a scandalous, secret tell-all being penned about honky tonk duo The Field Sisters and Nashville royalty Thad Evans and Hope Tanner (threatening to reveal their most shocking secrets to their fans), reads like the pilot for a soap that could be called Desperate Nashville Wives. This got me to thinking, wouldn't it be great if some of our daytime soap faves—many of whom happen to know a thing or three about singing a little "twang"—be perfect for a TV adaption of Schlimm's book?
I tell you what, I love me some Divas of Daytime. No, not simply because two-thirds of them hail from below the Mason Dixon like I do (though that helps!). Check out the SOAPnet remix of "It's Raining Men" performed by the trio—comprised of One Life to Live's Kassie DePaiva (Blair), Kathy Brier (ex-Marcie) and All My Children's Bobbie Eakes (Krystal)—below!
