In last night's episode of ABC's Nashville — titled "I Don't Wanna Talk About It Now" and handily recapped by our own Ashley Spurgeon over on sister blog Country Life — Clare Bowen's character Scarlett O'Connor underwent a bit of a makeover. O'Connor (who Spurgeon brilliantly describes both as a "hayseed" and "a dog-eared copy of The Baby-Sitter’s Club that your mom threw out without even asking") proceeds to perform a sultry little number by the name of "Waitin'." Watch a clip of that above. Fans of local country chanteuse Caitlin Rose will of course recognize "Waitin'" as the third track from this year's The Stand-In, which Rose co-wrote with fellow locals Mark Fredson, Jordan Lehning and Skylar Wilson. You can download that shiz via iTunes.
Head after the jump to see Rose and her band performing "Waitin'," a song that Rose introduces as "mean and stuff." So, how was Bowen's delivery of the tune? Did she get the "mean and stuff" vibe right? Do you like her lipstick? Does anyone know what the hell venue that is? Should Rose's pedal steel player, Spencer Cullum Jr., start playing steel standing up like Scarlett's dude? By the way, last night's episode also featured a tune by Rose's bassist, Reno Bo.
