It was a big moment when country star Will Lexington came out as gay in the season 3 finale of ABC's hit show "Nashville," and the actor behind the role, Chris Carmack, told HuffPost Live on Monday that he wanted to do it justice. Is this the one? The actor described the added pressure that came with portraying such a turning point in the episode.
That storyline struck a chord with fans. Lexington appeared in only six episodes of the first season, and by the second the character was a regular. Carmack is in some ways an unlikely Will Lexington.

I'm overwhelmed with happiness from your kind thoughts," she posted on Wednesday. Wow, thanks everyone for all the love! I'm overwhelmed with happiness from your kind thoughts!
In addition to plenty of dramatic moments, the show has also featured tons of great music and characters viewers loved—including Will Lexington Chris Carmacka conflicted gay country star.

In two weeks, he films the commercial, which airs in its entirety on the show. In the spot, set in a small western town, Will is dressed as a cowboy, clad entirely in black. He tames a wild dog, saves the lives of a few unsuspecting townies and, after being warily sized up by tough-looking locals at the bar, downs a bottle of Budweiser and is welcomed into the fold.
