The youngest stars of ABC’s Nashville have an exciting week ahead of them. Lennon and Maisy Stella, real life sisters who play the daughters of Connie Britton’s Rayna James character, will perform their original Christmas song, “Christmas Coming Home,” on Good Morning America on Thursday. Thursday is also Maisy’s 9th birthday. The pair will then make their Grand Ole Opry debut at the historic Ryman Auditorium on Saturday.
“My birthday is on Thursday and I was excited about that,” Maisy said. “Now, we’re getting to perform on GMA and sing for the first time on the Grand Ole Opry…what a week!”
“It’s been a roll of really cool and exciting things happening for us lately,” Lennon, 13, said. “We are going to take a deep breath and make sure we soak it all in. Everything is happening so fast and we are beyond thankful!
Maisy and Lennon are the daughters of Canadian husband-and-wife country duo The Stellas. The sisters’ cover of Robyn’s “Call Your Girlfriend” has received more than 11 million views on YouTube and their acoustic version of Hayden Panettiere’s “Telescope” is featured on the Nashville original soundtrack which hit stores Tuesday. Their Grand Ole Opry debut is part of a special night of performances from the stars of Nashville.
In addition to the news of Good Morning America and the Grand Ole Opry, the girls had another exciting moment this week. Harry Styles from One Direction tweeted about the sisters and commented on their performance of “Call Your Girlfriend” on YouTube.
