Amazing news for fans of the hit television show, Nashville: It's headed to Broadway!

Yesterday, the show's studio, Lionsgate, and producer Scott Delman announced that Nashville is being adapted into a Broadway musical.

"Nashville, with its complex, relatable characters and sweeping emotional gestures, has all of the narrative elements that I look for in great theatrical source material. From that rich DNA, we will be building an original story with entirely original music, written by major Nashville and Broadway songwriters," Delman commented in a press release. "We are particularly excited to deliver Broadway's first score of true contemporary country music – a genre that has exploded with mainstream audiences in recent years."

Delman, who will serve as lead producer of the Broadway show, has won 10 Tony Awards and produced or co-produced Broadway hits like Book of Mormon, Hello Dolly!, Ragtime, and many more.

The media annoucement didn't share a timeline or who would star in the show, but shared that those details "will be announced shortly."
