Plus, you might even catch the 34-year-old singing in Hallmark’s A Nashville Christmas Carol, which premieres tonight, Saturday, Nov. 21. Read on for more details about Jessy and her musical career so far.
Jessy played Cash Gray on ‘Nashville.’
In the fourth season of the ABC musical drama Nashville, Jessy played Cash Gray, a singer-songwriter that befriends Rayna James’ daughter Maddie (Lennon Stella).
The recurring role gave Jessy a chance to sing on camera: She performed the tune “If You Don’t Mean Business,” and she duetted with Lennon on the song “Swept Away.”
She felt connected to her musician character in ‘Country at Heart.’
Jessy said she could relate to her character in Country at Heart, a struggling singer-songwriter named Shayna, who’s trying to figure out her next step. “I felt connected to her in the way of being a musician and singer-songwriter, but also even just being an actor for as long as I have,” she told LRM Online in October 2020.
“You’re always kind of dealing with what doors are being opened, what doors are being closed, and I feel like because of that, I have a lot of those feelings that I could just give to Shayna because it matches the story.”
Jessy shares the screen with country stars in ‘A Nashville Christmas Carol.’
In the new Hallmark movie — a riff on Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol— Jessy plays an overworked TV producer who’s working on a country music-themed Christmas special, which brings her back into the orbit of her childhood sweetheart (played by Wes Brown), who’s now the manager of the special’s headliner.
An all-star cast joins Jessy in the yuletide flick, including country stars Wynonna Judd, Sara Evans, RaeLynn, and Kix Brooks. And look out for Kimberly Williams-Paisley, wife of Brad Paisley, as the Spirit of Christmas Present.
Jessy Schram has a new single out.
In June, Jessy released her first single, “Do I Dare,” a song that she co-wrote with her friend Willow Stephens.
“I’ve released a Christmas song in the past, but this will be the first single that I’ll be releasing,” she told LRM Online. “It’s a song that I wrote with a musician friend, Willow Stephens, about that unsuspecting friendship relationship that turns into something more and being scared to move forward because you don’t want the relationship to be ruined.”
And the single is just the start of Jessy’s musical career, as she teased to Starry Mag last month.
“I am really hoping for an EP soon,” she said. “Right now it’s just the single ... I just need to find the right partners in crime to help me produce my EP, so I am hoping in the next year there will be some more coming out.”
A Nashville Christmas Carol airs tonight, Saturday, Nov. 21, at 8 p.m. EST on the Hallmark Channel.
