Nashville's Clare Bowen: Engaged to Brandon Robert Young!

Clare Bowen has confirmed that she is engaged to longtime boyfriend Brandon Robert Young!

The 31-year-old Nashville actress was performing at the Grand Ole Opry on Saturday night (December 5) when Brandon popped the question.

“Thank you!” Clare tweeted to a Nashville music outlet that posted about the news.

This weekend was Clare‘s first time performing live at the venue since she chopped off her hair. She has been sporting the short new ‘do on the recent episodes of her hit ABC series.

Nashville's Clare Bowen Chops Off All Her Hair, Writes Eloquent Explanation Why

Nashville star Clare Bowen, who plays Scarlett on the show, has chopped off all her hair.

The actress wrote an eloquent Facebook post explaining why she did so.

“When I was four years old…I had just been diagnosed with end stage nephroblastoma, after several visits to a GP who denied anything was wrong and dubbed my parents “paranoid.” I’d overheard the doctors telling my family that the only hope of saving me, was an experimental treatment that might kill me anyway. But without it I had maybe two weeks left. The hospital was cold. I’d never felt air conditioning before,” Clare wrote.

“And then I got really lucky. I survived, my hair grew back and I got strong again. I look relatively normal on the outside, but on the inside, I am still the same stitched back together little creature, in a world where people are judged so harshly for the way they look. It has always been completely incomprehensible to me. How can people think there’s time for that?,” Clare added.

“Every scar tells a story, every baldhead, every dark circle, every prosthetic limb, and every reflection in a mirror that you might not recognize anymore. Look deeper than skin, hair, nails, and lips. You are who you are in your bones. That is where you have the potential to shine the brightest from. It is where your true beautiful self lives,” Clare continued. :Thank you ABC network and particularly our creator, Callie Khouri for letting me change Scarlett’s hair, and my team, family and friends for helping me make the decision. If it makes even one person think twice about judging another, then in some small way, the world is better.”

Jonathan Jackson's 'Nashville' Co-Stars Attend Album Release

Jonathan Jackson poses with his bandmates while attending his Album Release Party at the Hard Rock Cafe Nashville on Saturday (October 18) in Nashville, Tenn.

The 32-year-old actor/musician was supported at the event by his Nashville co-stars Clare Bowen, Chip Esten, and Chris Carmack.

“Yeah, that was really exciting,” Jonathan recently said about performing one of his songs on the show. “I’d written it before Nashville came about, but it just seemed like the themes of the song fit the show really well. It was cool, because they started playing the song over a scene with Deacon and Rayna. This was towards the end of season one, I think, when they were getting back together.”
